Gothic Empire! Or at least a castle to call my own.


New here and looks like a great chatroom. I'm a lifelong DIY maniac. My background is in metalwork and blacksmithing as well as welding fabrication. Before metalworking I did about 8 years of carpentry. I'm familiar with most the trades and can do most of the work myself but here and there I may have some questions.

I am turning a 1998 Fleetwood Good cents manufactured home w/ large stick built attached garage and stick built mudroom into a gothic castle. Right now i'm just reframing all the interior walls and gutting drywall. Taking out all the 1"x3" with 1/4" drywall and putting in 2x4" with 1/2" and 5/8" drywall.

Down the road i'll paint the exterior, and start doing woodwork and stonework inside the house. There is a heck of a lot to do and you'll probably start seeing a lot of me as well as the finished product as time goes on. It's hard work making a themed home, endless details and labor but I have the skill and the persistence. It's going to be a very fun and rewarding journey.

Here is my latest addition.. A Youngs Weeping Birch near my garden. Everything is fenced out here.. we have ninja deers who will eat everything.



Cheers,

Av
