Restoring an old house in Le Marche

Restoring an old house in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
The process of planning to restore our 1753 farmhouse in the Marchigiano countryside was both thrilling and frightening. So many details to consider-- the expertise of our engineers was key to solving a multitude of challenges. - by Gabrielle Shubert
Mariano Pallottini's insight:

In the end, the horror stories we’d heard about building in Italy did not materialize for us, in large part due to the integrity and honesty of our team.  The only thing that nailed us was the euro/dollar exchange rate, which hit its highest point when we had the most bills to pay.  Bene, no one could’ve foreseen that.
