Man Makes Elaborate Castle at Work Desk for Christmas

Playing Man's Epic Winter Wonderland Desk Decorations Inspired by Blind Wife

It’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas at one man’s work desk. 

Jack Makepeace, 24, works as an engineer at Ibsecad in England, and this year, he wanted to create a winter wonderland at his desk. 

Makepeace’s design is a castle inspired by a honeymoon trip he took with his wife to the Ice Hotel in Sweden. 

The castle, which is made out of cardboard, is equipped with a “chimney” and working drawbridge.

“It took three hours, roughly, but definitely worth it,” Makepeace said.

The display also has fairy lights, tinsel and sugar canes. 

It’s his third year coming up with a creation for the holiday season as Makepeace competes against co-workers to see whose design is best. 

"I had only worked here a couple of months when the company first set a competition in 2016,” he said. "Others had put Christmas trees on their desk and I decided I wanted to go 'out there' and build a festive house around me.”

His co-workers already said they are excited about what he’ll do next year.
