Sorry for the long lapse in the blog. It was partly brcause we've been so busy and partly because the thought of bloggin overwhelmed me as I hadn't done it in so long, so I will do my best to share the finishing details we've, mostly Andy, Brian, and Dwayne, been working on.
I went up with my parents and sister for a family reunion and my Mom was driving me crazy, so into the stockade she went. Andy deisgned this, in this location, so people wouldn;t walk off the ledge.
Andy has been going up alot without us and these are the things I noticed he had done when I wasthere. It seems the fungeon is now a bt of a torture room & this is a torture chair.
Looking down into the Fungeon with new rope railing
Andy hung some tapestries, this one is behind pew in main entrance
The knight room also got Andy's parent's old chairs from when he was a kid, with a new reupholstered castle flair.
The Bishop's room has the completed stations of the cross, minus one. These came from Germany and were a great find on an antique trip last fall.
the following week Andy and I went up for Labor Day & the Timberframer had gotten done what will be a small walkaround where tower will go.
Looking through the center timberframe
(place to hang out under in any type of weather) to the storage shed.
Andrea and Tom came to visit and cook for us, We made them dress for the occasssion
We actually took an afternoon off and went kayaking on the Raquette River, It was a perfect day. Andrea was the Kayak godess
OK, so this is on the Raquette River, near the Wild Center. That white thing in the opening, in the distance, is the castle. It'll be easier to see when the tower is on.
and yes, walked around all evening dressed like this and then retired to fungeon to watch some Harry Potter.
Alittle roof top fun waiting for sunset.
We had dinner on the roof this night.

walking back to castle on driveway. These big concrete thingys are going to be put on past and will be your guide along the driveway into the castle.
My Breast friend Yvonne & her lovely hubby, came to visit from ALbany for the evening.
I awoke the next morning to Mark and Andy in deep conversation below me.
and then we put her to work.
as I said before, Yvonne knows people and it just happens her previous director friend lives in Long Lake, so here they are trying on their best knight helmut face
Had to move the puzzle to the fungeon room as it was a 3 ft. one. and its a strange one, but I can;t wait to get back there to work on it.
Stay tuned for the tower!
