Castle McKenzie... Exterior and Landscaping Progress... 2007-2008
Below is a photo tour of the progress made through 2008 to complete the grounds and exterior of the castle. To describe all of the work would take more space on the website than makes sense to do. Suffice to say that the photos presented are representative of the work completed. They will be updated on a regular basis.
As for lower level work being done, we have set up a photo page for that. As work progresses, we will have represenatative photos to offer. As of this writing, the remainder of the floor is being tiled. The main room has been tiled. The theatre and the "extra" room, will be carpeted when all construction work is completed. The Home Theatre is pretty much finished except for the carpeting. Much of the woodwork has been completed throughout the lower level, but finishing and cleanup is still in progress.
If you are interested in purchasing the castle, or any of our other properties, please request additional information on our Information Request Form. It will allow us to keep you informed on progress via email. And check back at this website as well.
