Recent Bishop Castle Constructions

Summer 2001 thru Winter/Spring 2002

Jim has been ultra busy and enthusiastic this past summer/fall/winter. New to the castle are a functional three story elevator that goes from the ground level to the main hall. He has continued construction on the 3rd level balconies so that they now stretch across the front of the castle. The Chimney Tower has now reached it's full height and has been capped off. And most exciting of all, Jim has completed the spiral stairway up through the N.W. Pa's Tower (which was the last tower to remain unaccesable), so that one can now reach the bridge without having to climb the scaffolding. And he has already begun the framework for the glass geodesic dome observatory that will top off Pa's tower!

Check and see for yourself!
