On Saturday we had the Richtfest. In English this is known as the “Topping Out“. The house builder hangs a special wreath from the roof and then recites a poem punctuated with shots of schnapps. Then we climbed up on the scaffolding and said a few words. After that we partied.

  1. Wow! Looks like quite a project! Congrats on your new kingdom and send a high five to your queen for me. Love, Marina

  2. Wish we could have been there to represent the Russell family and its long history of tearing up and rebuilding:) Love you both.
