Marti & Kevin Visit - The Castle

So I don't even know where to start to explain this castle. It is about an hour away from our home and has been worked on since the 70's. He started out just wanting a winter cottage and then the government came in and told him he couldn't quarry the rocks on his land. He was angry enough he kept building and building. While we were there he was working on it and yelling all sorts of things about the government. The castle is crazy, a bit scary but absolutely one of the funnest things we have done in a long time. We had fun seeing it with Marti and Kevin and Rachel. Enjoy the pictures!

On our way to the castle. Kevin, Rachel, Marti, Colby, Kylie, Michelle and Jayden.
This is his sign in front of the castle. I don't think it is as much for us as it is for police or government officials. There are also signs around from the government saying the building is not OSHA approved and enter at your own risk.

Kevin taking Rachel up some steps. Yes, he built this stone by stone. He is a welder by trade.
The Neilsons on the second floor of the castle.
Michelle and Kylie.
This is pretty high up and I am scared to death! You can see all the welding connections on this outside landing so not only can you see all the way down, it is not even.

Colby and Jayden up on the castle bridge. I agreed to stay down and take the picture!

It is hard to see but Kevin is also in the door on one of the towers.
