I love the boldness of creating a castle here in the states! Hard to believe that this was one fifth in scale(!).

As a side note, really sad to hear about the owner; I myself have a sister-in-law who also became ablaze while cooking at the stove. I can’t say enough how important it is to apply the “drop and roll” technique/adage if one finds their body on fire. It’s sort of a stop whatever you’re doing, get on the ground as quickly as possible and ROLL until the fire is out. If one does that quickly enough I suppose they may not even have to go to the hospital (potentially).
