No, no, not at all.  I didn't even MENTION the portable manor house
project!  That is an entirely different issue.  That project has been
stalled because we need a trailer to carry it and a vehicle that can tow
the trailer (and, incidently, a place to store the trailer between events)
before I start building the three-room, two-level takedown merchant house
(which is the Proof Of Concept design for the larger takedown Manor House,
a Wealden design of the 15th century based upon Bayleaf in the Weald and
Downland Open-air Museum).
