I completely missed this project until today! The initial flurry of postings occurred when my first grandchild was born and we were out of town assisting the new parents. I'm not sure why I missed the 2013 flurry.

My grandkids are fascinated with construction vehicles, but are too young to be allowed in the same room as this magnificent creation. It is truly inspirational.

This is a project that I never grow tired of, no matter how many times it's resurrected.

I too still think of it regularly. I wish I had had the chance to take multiple photos during construction just for my enjoyment, however I would still have shared those here.

Is it time to resurrect this? It has been just over a year and we have some new members, so this will give them a chance to see this.

Since I don't post here much anymore (something I need to change), I would like to wish every one a belated Merry Christmas and a belated Happy New Year.
