Ever loved Game of Thrones? Well, you're going to certainly love this. As we've all known, GoT fans are always avid and excited when it comes to seeing their favorite TV series being brought to life. For this latest update, you might want to hold yourself because this one will really get you off your feet.

Winterfell Castle Comes To Life

The home of House Stark on HBO's historical fantasy series is being reproduced in quick setting cement. The dreary, gray outlines of Winterfell Castle, the home of House Stark on HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, is being reproduced on the grounds of a Russian cement manufacturing plant.

The massive form of the hulking medieval-style building is shaping up in layer by layer of quick-setting cement at the Yekaterinburg Cement Factory in central Russia. Poured around segments of a steel frame from a giant industrial-size version of a 3D printer, the Yekaterinburg factory chief states that the castle, which is scheduled to be finished before the end of September, will serve as a local attraction for utilizing new technology in creating concrete frames for structures.

Ultimate 3D-Printing Project

Production line supervisor Rinat Brilin told local Television station Telekanal 360 that building the castle was an engineering challenge that could show the uses of modern 3D technology.

"Why this castle? First of all, it is, in my view, very beautiful. And it also demands the use of many new technologies to construct that simpler buildings don't require," the supervisor said. 

Different from genuine gothic castles, or even the set for Game of Thrones, Yekaterinburg's version of Winterfell is not a labor-intensive project. Just three workers, including the computer programmer, have been tasked with ensuring that the sausage-shaped layers of liquid concrete, which are needed for the structure's completion, are accurately placed. The result is now a massive attraction in Russia, and will certainly attract numerous GoT fans all over the world.
