I cannot imagine how he did this one. The dragon is really...

The flooring looks really nice.

Side view. I took over 100 pictures of the castle. About 1/3...

I am just amazed one man did all of this

Inside rooms and fireplace

There is a out house for those that need it. Not much...

I took over 100 pictures of this piece of art. I talked with Jim for a few minutes, and he told us he was 68. I can tell you he is in great shape. Opinionated and strong in his beliefs of what America should be. Even if you don't agree with his political views, you will have to admit, this Castle is a great piece of construction.

The website for the journal is in Canada, and they did maintenance this weekend. Not sure what happened but many of the pictures were rotated 90 degrees. I corrected them, but lost some of the width. Not sure why, but that was the best we could do without reloading. The pictures are about 4-5 megs in size so it takes awhile to load them on the server and tomorrow morning I am leaving and will lose the internet connection.

There has been a lot written about Jim and the castle and here are a few links you might enjoy.
