The Vision

Thanks for coming to this page. Let me explain what I have embarked on.


Do you dream of living a simpler life? I do.A life that is more connected with the Earth and the things that are real. How about living a life the way they did in Medieval Europe or the Renaissance?

That is what I am doing. Just the same way they did it back then. You build a castle and a community of people around it. That means we need blacksmiths, farmers, mead makers, stone masons, knights, millers, drapers, bakers, weavers, fishmongers, cartwrights, chandlers, cordwainers, cobblers, coopers and much much more.

Be part of the dream. Start your life anew. Let's build a community that lives a simpler life.

Here is the beginning of the Castle:


More about the castle on it's website here: MerryMead Castle


I have the first version of this castle done. It is an eight page pdf which includes the base sheet that you assemble it on. There are not yet any instructions to go with it. But you should be able to put it together relatively easily. I recommend you print it up onto some kind of index card or card stock. 90 pound paper is the best. Download it here: Merry Mead Castle Paper booklet

(If you need 90 pound paper it is available on amazon right here)
