Every couple years we go back to this place to check out his progress. He's been building this from local stone mostly by himself since 1961.

I've been coming here since I was a kid and it just keeps getting wilder. Jim Bishop has been building this castle in the mountains above Pueblo Colorado mostly by himself from stone he picks up by the side of the road since 1961.

First off, this is inspiring, but I have to admit that the first thing that went through my mind when I saw it was -- how did they get THAT through permitting and planning???

There is a castle in Loveland Ohio. It was built out of home made bricks by one person.
