Raise the Portcullis!!!

I always wanted a castle instead of a real house, but Kristie wouldn’t let me build it, now at least, we have a moat. It finally stopped raining but they wont be able to start work for a few days for fear of losing some labourers in the quicksand that’s formed around the house (unless they opt for Ian’s brick floatation method, but I’m not sure we want a house made of floating bricks).

Currently trying to find a second hand patch panel in preparation for cabling the house (which is about 3-4 weeks off I think)..if anyone knows someone selling, or has a clue where I could find one, let me know (I’ve checked newspaper classified, tradingpost, hyman auctions, computermarket and cougar with no luck).
