32x32: Cartref Castle

Cartref is welsh for 'home' by the way.

Sorry, there won't be any more photos. I can't make any excuses other than my laziness for not doing an interior. Forgive me. :oops:

Gorgeous. Just the right level of detailing on the walls. I also particularly like the angled gateway, which is done very neatly, and the windows of the timbered section.

Thanks!

Ooh, and the doors. Lovely timber effects there.

The door and the half stud offset in the windows are nice.

The design is really stylish. There are so many nice little details. It's really a beauty.

Yea, I'm wondering how he managed the half-stud offset? I don't think I've ever seen that before in windows.
Anyways, this is an excellent castle! I would love it if TLG released a castle set like this.
I'm becoming very fond of these 32x32 castles.

right on the jumper plates to achieve the inset but not the curved parts. I simply put one of these on top of the bricks/window which slots into the top of the arch.
