I helped build this house. The only thing we didn't do is pour the foundation; we've done everything else and it is HARD WORK! We are finally to the point of priming the drywall, which is what is going on here.

I've always wanted to create one of these mega-collages. There are 33 individual images. The finished product doesn't look that great, but ah well, it's my first time. I missed a few areas as you can see, and I think I overlapped images a bit too much when shooting. But I am anxious to try another and improve the process!

I can only imagine the hard work involved in doing a project like this, but I bet the satisfaction when completed will be worth it. This shot is cool on so many levels - you're sharing your SOL and showing a technique that must have taken some time to accomplish. I can't wait to see another!

What a creative picture. I thought there were a bunch of mirrors. I would love to build my own house, or just have a brand new house of my own anyway.

Wonderful image(s). Looks like a lot of work (the house and the photo). Must be great to build your own house.

Looks pieced together. I like the way you put together so many photos, it brings back memories of my contracting days and the way everything is put together one piece at a time.

I love the quirkiness of the collage effect. It's like a very engaging puzzle. Kudos to you for all of your hard work, on this and on the house. :)

I think the gaps in the photos are a lucky mistake!! They add to the whole mayem I'm sure you're going through right now! The house looks great so far!! I look forward to seeing shots of the end result!!

I love the collage, 33 images, that is a lot of work. So big projects are your thing?
I think the finished product looks great! The house looks pretty amazing too.
Something to be very proud of.

This is amazing....what a great collage and it gives me a real feeling of the construction process and how scattered it makes those involved feel. I love it!

What a big project! I would be so impatient to get it all finished. Oh, that's the house building I'm talking about. On the other hand perhaps the same comment applies to the collage! I think you did a good job with that, it's pretty interesting.
