Other Cool Things
There are a lot of insane people out there restoring great old houses. God love each and every one.
But perhaps the restoration which stuns me the most is one undertaken by Dr. David Johnston. You see, Johnston decided to restore a castle. Yes, a castle. A castle which was abandoned fifty years ago and left to the elements.
As if this were not astonishing enough, it gets even more incredible.
You see, Johnston is not rich, as I had assumed. Indeed, to pay for X work, Johnston has to leave the project for many months to earn enough to pay for the next phase of work.
I love this guy. What he is doing seems like a miracle.
His blog is here.
A nice overview is here.
