Apologies for an extended absence .....

Firstly, Greetings to my new followers yet more talented people ....  I'm honoured !!!

Well to let to let you know what I've been up to .... firstly on the castle front things are progressing slowly but due to the projected size of the project I need to find a large enough area to build and place it and also I am discussing with the people of Margam about a few things i.e. detailed plans ... haha but I am still looking forward to it .

 Meanwhile I've cracked on with a whimsical folly to try out a few techniques and ideas , well it certainly isn't everybodies cup of tea but I'm enjoying going freelance on it and feel influenced by LOTR and Terry Pratchett ideas so anyway you guys have a look and let me know if you want to.
 It's basically a split level 3 story house with a lower floor of cotswold finish stonework and an upper timber levels , the roof well I've still to decide on yet. The cotswold stones are made from polystyrene all individually cut to give depth and features and the floorboards is plaster on mixed board. How far and it all goes I don't know yet but it's FUN to play .... I 'll post more as it happens ...meanwhile thank yo all again for following.
