Rebuilding the Ballroom

It all started with 'I can do better.'

Break out a hammer and some small explosives and down came the south wall, then the ceiling, then everything else.

Why do it? Why not? As a builder I have learned a great deal more, so I am often looking to my older builds with hungry eyes to destroy it and make it better.

The new ceiling was a challenge I was quite fond of the old one. Made of the finest prim trees growing in the mountains all wood is hand carved and delicately placed... with a bigger hammer.

A noteworthy view of the new ceiling before railings and all the columns were placed.
