Today, and I can hardly believe that I’m about to type this. I bring to you…. The start of….
That stupid WINDMILL!!!! Ha!
You thought it was never going to happen and to be honest, I questioned it myself!
And yes, I’m so glad you noticed, I did display the pictures in a different format this time! I’ve never paid enough attention to the image options apparently, so I figured I would give the slideshow a shot! Anyway, on to the build.
Yes, I know it isn’t complete. The house section is, but the windmill portion is not, unfortunately. I need to find some pictures of a windmill as a guide. Lore to come once the project is complete, but I’ll give you a sneak peak now if you can keep a secret. I imagined this as just the windmill originally.
Fun fact: I never really knew what windmills were used for back in the day until I played Skyrim. Who says you can’t learn from video games?!
Anyway, as time progressed, I envision this farmer expanding on the windmill for a place to live and watch over his fields and bada-bing, you have the start of a house. Perhaps farmer meets a lady at the Grumpy Bear and a few months later, bada-boom–the farmer needs a bigger house so that the wife can throw all of his stuff away and replace it with nicer stuff.
No, I will not be calling this farmer “Old Man Jenkins” either.
That was mostly for me to remind myself to NOT call him that.
