The 33-year-old antique trader is now channeling the same creativity into building a 6,500-square-foot Georgian-style palace out of his humble childhood home in a suburb of Montréal.
Romeo, Hébert’s 5-year-old son, is being raised in the mansion, which also serves as his home and display for his antique business. Emmanuel Hébert was raised in a modest Montréal home, which he later converted into a Georgian mansion. Additionally, he rents it out for $184 per hour and uses the money to finance additional house renovations. With the use of social media, Hébert has been able to communicate his passion and market his company.
