This is the home of my dreams. It's a huge imaginary castle located in the Italian Alps and a crazy spare time project where I can put all the awesomeness I might not be able to put in my real work if I become an architect. I started drawing the great dining room December 20th 2008 and have for some periods spent all my spare time drawing but also a few times not touched the model for months.
The floor area is a bit over 20 000 m2 and I haven't yet bothered counting the rooms. I don't even know what counts as a room and what is just a passage through a thick wall in a building like this.
For the latest version I've added an atelier to the residence section, a bowling alley to the recreation area, converted the old gallows hill, added a gardening storage with stuff like buckets and wheel barrows, connected the Eagle's Tower to the garage, connected 2 towers with a bridge over the middle courtyard, added some furniture in general and fixed texture orientation on several faces.
I've also rewritten parts of the floor plan viewer which now also shows statistics over the whole building as well as individual sections. Last but not least I've gotten in to architecture school and haven't been able to draw much on this project the last couple of weeks but I still felt I needed to publish what I've drawn during the summer.
The castle is located at a mountain in the Italian Alps.
The road to the castle follows the south west wall but makes a u-turn between the outer and middle gatehouses before it intersects the wall at the inner gatehouse. From here there's a road leading directly to the inner courtyard but the main road follows the same wall to the Eagle's Tower and goes through the garden and the outer & middle courtyard first.
The main entrance is located at the tower with the copper roof facing the inner courtyard. Most of the castle is directly connected to this tower.
The floorplan is shown on another page at the website but the interior is drawn in the main model, described at this page.
The castle's surroundings is drawn in a different model and has its own information page.

The model contains almost only my own components. There are a few traces of Google/the Sketchup team left such as the arcade games and musical instruments. These will be replaced as soon as possible. However there's nothing in this model that isn't made by either me or Google.
This is much more than another low polygon component for my huge castle. It's also the first real world car model that I've made and it's a quit good car. The Stingray is my favorite car and the 69 model is the best looking but I couldn't find any blueprints so I made the 63 version instead which perhaps is the most famous one.
This is one of the planes that won battle of Britain. It's one of the best looking airplanes ever and absolutely one of my favorites. This is a model of one of the earliest versions but Spitfire changed and was used in Great Britain until in the 50:s and even later in other countries.
This water tank is used in my huge castle at the 6th floor in the keep (residence section). It's practically the same as in a water tower but there are big beams to spread it's pressure over a bigger area.
This was one of my favorite Lego cars as a kid. It was also the car of the main character in some of the films I recorded with my Lego minifigures. The car is a part of the set 5958 - Mummy's Tomb. Drawn to scale
