Paging Kevin Costner

Ferdinand Cheval was a postman with a dream:

Each day on his round if he saw stone or pebble that caught his eye he would put it to one side and when he had finished work he would take his wheelbarrow and collect them and in April 1879 he started work on his "ideal palace". For the next 30 years, working alone, he built what he saw in his visions, a mad, fabulous fantasy palace.
If I get the opportunity to travel to Grenoble on business (several members of my team have been already) then I will definitely make a side-trip to Cheval's Palais.
