Dear God...

That is incredible! I don't normally find many MOC's aesthetically appealing, but this structure is fantastically gorgeous!

I just wanted to add my WOW! To the list of WOWs here.  This castle really should be a winner in any contest.

How long did it take?  Any idea how many bricks?

This really gives me something to shot for.

Good picks for inspiration.  I really like the design and the asymmetry.  The name "castle" is kind of dull.  Do you have a better name or description I can change it to?

That castle looks awesome.  I am very impressed.  I love everything about it.  I really like the overall shape and design.  I love how you broke up the grey by using various wood built sections.  Great MOC.  :classic:

I'm actually not that familiar with the Classic Castle forum and their competitions. Can you send a link?

I've worked with this project for about a month. But I've spent much time building it, since I currently work with an essay and have much spare time. Actually I don't have any idea how many bricks I've used, but maybe around 5000.

In the Swebrick forum, I used the name "The Old Monastery" for the project.

I will add my wow here. Although I really like what LordofDragons said "holy brick!"

I love the details like anyone else, but I love how seamless the wood/stonework looks. And the giant rock base is brilliant. I should try my hand at this sometime, but I doubt I will ever complete it nor will it look anything remotely this interesting.

Keep up the good work!
