Hi GW,

I guess even Jerry Fletcher (Mel Gibson's character in "Conspiracy Theory" -- I know. . . pretty obscure reference. . .) would feel safe in this place!:-)

Uh-oh -- is that a Black Helicopter I hear. . .:? Nah, they fly in stealth mode and ya can't hear em. . . :paranoid:

Oh yeah -- very nice pics of a "not-your-usual" house!

I realize this place isn't way up in the snow-capped mountains, but it still reminds me of Mad King Ludwig's castle in Germany(?). Or is it in Austria? Anyway, the photos are awesome, and the castle is, well, I guess I'd have to say it's very memorable. Great pics, GW. Very glad you're getting out and about.

This has to be a TinKnockers dream house. For some reason the aluminum siding we have up north doesn't look like that.:-) Can't wait to see the inside photos
