This is really sad. After being told over and over that this would stay up until further notice I passed the house only to notice it being raised to the ground in early September.
Here is an early shot of it being built over the summer.
Unlike many sets this was built with a full interior inside and the exterior was fully finished. Interestingly the barns behind it and the “water” tower were already on the land and required only a swift repaint. In the case of the water tower the repaint even ended up spraying onto the grass!
It was such a shame…this would have been a tourist attraction for the rest of its life.
The final picture is across the road from the set, where large constructions containers sat. These held the items to pull the set down, as well as tools and housed equipment overnight. The red circle is the location of the farm set just to the southeast.
