There is another Castle in Fernley on 1-80 east bound just outside of fernley heading towards fallon the long way, it was built by a man years ago and he spent years working on it.. used rocks from the hills around him on it, I have been in it when it was empty, it was 2 stories and was on the hill side.. was more of a Keep.
It had a largish open area on the bottom floor, like a combined kitchen/living room/dining room, then a set of stairs that lead up to a loft ledge which I would assume is the bedroom.
On the outside was a walkway leading to the roof, the front of the keep had lots of glass windows and was amazing because it was built right into the mountain... even carved out rock from the back to create more space in the inside.
Someone bought it and has been working on it but they have big blue tarps around it so I dont know if they are messing it up or adding to it, I dont have any pictures of this keep but if you can find someone who does that would rock.

I WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO THIS BEAUTIFUL CASTLE, IN THE EARLY 80íS. I ONCE KNEW THE BUILDER AND HIS SONS. THE BUILDER OF THIS MAGNIFICIENT STRUCTURE IS AN ELDER IN THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS. IF I AM NOT MISTAKEN HIS FIRST NAME IS DAVID. AT THE TIME THAT I FIRST, SAW THE INSIDE OF THE CASTLE, A REAL ESTATE AGENT FROM FERNLEY REALITY OWNED OR WAS A TENANT. JUST PAST WAREHOUSE MARKET, YOU VEER TO THE RIGHT AND THE CASTLE SITS ON THE LEFT. BUILT INTO THE MOUNTAIN.
Does anyone have more info on this? It would be nice to see a photo.
