Carl, this turned out to be a lovely gift for your wife Darlene!
I hope she and your family will enjoy it for many Christmases to come.
And like Frank mentioned, I hope you will add more details to it over the years.
Thanks for sharing Darlene's gift with us all!
And a big Merry Christmas to the Alessi family!

Thank you so much Mike, Kevin, Bill, Frank, Mark, Pete, Dave G., Bob, Greg, Dave E., Jerry and Frank(cowboybilly)!

Mike- Showing it to your spouse could create a new project for you next Christmas! Good Luck.

Frank and Greg- Add to it? Yikes this thing already turned into a $$$$$$$$$$$$$ pit.

Greg- Same to you and yours!

Dave E. Yes they are clean. However, I remember when I was in downtown Vienna in 1987 for a TV show- that a city worker arrived with suds, rag and a bucket and washed a "stop" sign by hand!
And the shopkeepers hosed down the front of their places every morning before they opened for the day.! Amazing. These 30 years later, I'll never forget it!

Jerry- Thanks, I believe we will.

Cowboybilly (Frank) - I'm happy and honored it brings you memories of home. .

I still remember the day we flew from Cairo to Vienna, mid November. It was warm, dusty, dirty and chaotic in Cairo. In Vienna, it was cool, clean and orderly (and it snowed before we left 4 days later.). The first day I had severe cognitive dissonance. :-)

Carl, Stunning, it brings back memories of my time in Europe. You are correct the streets and sidewalks are much cleaner than here (USA).
The reason? Pride. They have it, we don't.
Thank you for sharing an incredible accomplishment.

Lovely work, Carl.
A very interesting project quite out of the box. Love that shot down the alley!

Thanks for sharing your work - always a pleasure to watch one of your projects come together.

Cheers, Mark.

I guess Iíll have to take that chance. So far, special requests have been in the 1:1 world: curtain rods, funny noises in the dryer, a new kitchen.

Meanwhile, I hope your holidays are the best!

Mike

Carl,

Late to the party, but glad I stopped in. WOW what wiring, and boy was it ever worth it! The lighting really takes it over the top and it is a shame how visitors may never know all the work that went into that stone wall. I suppose though, if the illusion is complete and we are transported to another place, then that's all that really matters in the end. However, I am sure glad to have seen the process of construction.

FrŲhliche Weihnachten!

Galen
