Pictures of recent progress ( 2020)




1-7-2020 This is what the castle looks like on the 7th of January 2020.



2-10-2020 We had a visit today from some deer friends of ours.



4-6-2020 I have had a few inquires about the fact that I had not posted any new photos about progress lately. I have been very slow to get started this year. This is a photo of the first meaningful work that I have done so far in 2020. This was the last exterior wall of the great hall that did not have the studs installed. The studs are up now. I still have more wall studs to install around the bathrooms and the kitchen area in the great hall.



4-24-2020 I have been working on the wall studs in the great hall. These latest walls are for the two half baths (one to the left, and one to the right), and another room.



4-24-2020 This is another photo of these new wall studs. To the left is going to be one of the half baths, and to the right is an eight foot by eight foot room that could be used for various things. It could be used for storage, or if someone ever gets the great hall finished to the point that it could be used for weddings, this could be used for the bride to get ready for the wedding.



4-27-2020 This is what the other end of this area looks like now. This the main section of the great hall, it is 18 feet wide and 53 feet long. The part of the wall on the left that does not have any studs is where the future fireplace will be located.



4-28-2020 I also have poured the concrete for two more of the slabs that go on the top of the walls. There are many more of these to do.



4-29-2020 The people we hired to guard the castle are some of the laziest people I have ever seen.
