Thornewood Castle

Renovations: New Grand European Fountain



Original draft drawing of fountain from the "Rose Red" movie art department

First the existing trees and shrubs were removed from the center of the circular driveway

Then the hole is dug for the bottom and foundation of the fountain

Rebar is added and final adjustments made before the cement is poured

The cement is poured, then finished smooth

The first course of cement block is added

Three rows of concrete block were then added

After the block walls are laid with cement, wire mesh is wrapped around the wall

The block walls are then toweled with two layers of cement

Solid concrete pavers are cemented on top of the wall and a pattern toweled into the outside wall

Here is the finished fountain, in the morning mist
