The Garden Castle

There is one wall left to do on the outside of the castle, and then it will be complete also. When most people think castle they think great gray stone walls and portals, arrow slits etc. Well, this castle is nothing like that, but it's still a castle. More unusual then most but still very creative.
  One room inside {and a small turret room} with a fire place. The inside is yet to be worked on. So you tell me what you think about this castle…..



This is the side not finished yet.


The end of the castle.



                                                   The turret on the other end corner.

This will give you an idea of how big the castle is, that's Baby my cat {and no she's not bob cat size, just a plain house cat.}

The train runs around the bottom of the castle. {The tracks are removed for now till I finish, so as not to bend them by stepping on them}.
                                                            This is the inside open end.

It turned out to be a very interesting project. After the last wall's tile is up and dry I will still have to grout the tile. It will be covered in the winter to help protect it. I have no idea how long it will last.
It's tall enough inside for a 16" doll to stand up and have head room. Just goes to show you , how you can do anything you want if you put your mind to it. And it doesn't have to conform to what everyone thinks. I think it's pretty neat! Now to finish it, next clear day. {It's been raining a lot}
