Castle Number One by Built4ever Castle Number One by Built4ever
Wow! Nice job by [link] making a full color 3D graphic of my design for Castle Number One [link]. Please direct technical questions to them, not me! To see the original design sketch done in pencil, see my gallery. This is an original design for a "personal luxury castle," but it could easily be a medieval game playing environment or the setting for a novel. I don't have a floor plan for it yet!

My comments on this: They interpreted certain things like roof tile color and stone color their own way. I think it's very well done, very accurate. In this case, red ceramic tile roof and medium greyish brown stone color throughout. Shadowing is very dramatic, obviously this is depicted in strong sunlight.

If anybody has $50 million dollars or so laying around and wants to spend it, just e-mail me.

I need a purpose for the castle. It affects the floor plans.

BTW, no cheating allowed. :)

It looks a bit Germanic in style. I'd go for Loire French, but not Chambord. I like the earlier, simpler style. More elaborate than Tarascon, but with the simple elements.

Beautiful job you did on the drawing, and beautiful job they did on the 3D graphics.

Some minor influence came from German castles fer sure. I looked quickly at a few right before I doodled the sketch for this.

I suspect that it would cost quite a lot more than 50 million dollars, at least 100 million total.

Yes, I agree, it could easily go past 100 million. Who cares though? The guy is FILTHY RICH and has a billion!

You mean this?? Maybe just north of me, in North Carolina mountains. It doesn't look right for Dubai.

Built of "true" stone masonry, probably not. Cheating with stone over poured concrete, 12 inch walls standard, plus 8 inches stone, some tapering, functional buttresses and "stub walls," eh, maybe we can make it...Look in my gallery at the Oates residence retaining wall in the construction projects folder. I've already built this stuff...

No really, it's possible to get deep into the tens of millions for the foundation walls. You could be right.
