Mailman Builds Incredible Palace With Rocks He Collected Over 33 Years (Photos)
We've seen someone recreate the house from Disney's "Up" for a dog.
We've also seen a mad genius create an entire wall out of Lego bricks just because he felt like it. This time, however, we're venturing overseas to France to introduce you to a mailman from the late 1800s named Ferdinand Cheval.
Why? Well, it's not every day you see an entire house made out of pebbles, unless you're in Hauterives, a town in southeastern France. According to Bored Panda, Cheval collected pebbles while on his 18-mile delivery route and built his masterpiece from 1879 to 1912.
He didn't just throw the stones into his backpack or mail bag, though. He actually brought a wheelbarrow along with him so he could gather them more efficiently.
And after 33 years of assembly spanning, Cheval ended up with the Palais Idéal.
