    I was going to use a wood frame building for the watchman's shanty/office, but Mike C suggested using an old caboose or boxcar. so here is what I came up with.

    What was a attached garage has had the garage door replaced with a steel door and will now be buried into the hillside to be used as a bunker to store the explosives :eek:

    Thx Ron & Scott! :D Scott I'll try to get one posted tomorrow, been thinking of trying to take a shot of each side and the gorge end and splicing them into a panoramic shot also.

    Awesome work my friend.
    Hard to believe you were telling me a few back that you were thinking of putting up...
    couldn't get the hang of it. Looks to me like you put that horseshoe in a ringer.

    Fabulous Tyson!!!!! Amazing how much you were able to fit into that tiny space - and yet none of it looks crowded or forced! Awesome!!!

    That's a really neat layout Mike. You have captured the fall colours beautifully. The structures look right at home.

    Thanks folks! :) Val I suprised myself with how much I was able to get in the space. Scott it's a gold mine, so no problem being able to afford a helicopter :D :p :D . Of course there is no safe space to land, ran out of room before thinking of a heliport! :rolleyes: :D Robin the fall colors is one of the areas I am the least happy with, will probably switch some of the trees out.

    Tyson,
    I cleared this with the FAA. You now have a helipad. :)
