building progress

Haven't posted for a while, real life has been very busy.
But during the holidays I found some spare time to work on the 'castle' with my dad.
We've been drawing and sawing every now and then since the summer and now it finally started to come together! We put some walls together and here are some pictures of the first results. (they aren't very sharp but they where taken with a cellphone)

What you see is the front of the first level of the main building. The back of the building will stay open. Just for now I've put in the front door and kitchen window. The walls of the baywindow aren't in place yet, this big open room will be the dining room one day! :)

If you compare this to the finished building on the website where I bought the building plans, you can see that it's only a very small beginning but my imagination is already running wild on this! :D It'll be so different from the ones on the website, more inspired by the beautifull german mansions and castles I've seen on holiday.. but that's still very far away! First I have to build the other 3 levels, the tower, porches, bay windows, 3 leveled west wing...... you get the picture ;)

  1. I'm very excited to see your progress!

  2. It's looking very nice, it is so exciting when it starts taking shape and you can play with wallpaper, furniture... I'm looking forward to following your project. Happy New Year,

  3. Anneke, this will be a huge house. I have a Queen Anne by Real Good Toys and it is very very heavy and big . I am cracking my head as to how I am going to work on it eventually! I will be real curious how you work on yours :)

  4. Ziet er al erg leuk uit! Het wordt volgens mij wel een erg groot huis! Ik ben zelf ook in de bouwfase, dus is het is leuk om andere bouwers aan het werk te zien. Ik ben benieuwd naar de vorderingen!

    Groetjes, Valentina

  6. You are off to a great start! I went to the link you posted and saw the finished house. Wow! That is one magnificent home! I will be interested to see your next post about it.
