This is my giant keep. I initially built it over a three month period in 2005. It was ready in time for the Brickish Association Christmas Party that year. The original build was something of a compromise due to a limited supply of bricks and restriction of the part types available.
Having gotten my hands on a greater variety of tan parts in early 2006, I sent a day making it bigger, including the use of parts specially acquired. It was about a seven hour modifying build in total.
I expanded it again in mid 2006, incorporating another floor into the design which includes a chapel, though these pics pre-date that. The last time it was displayed was the Brickish Association Christmas Party that year. By 2007 it had been demolished.
The keep separates into four sections for transport - the base, mid and upper levels; and the front face. This is because the total weight of it at full height is about 25kg and the count after demolition was over 10,000 pieces.
