Kimberly (WFRV) Last week we introduced you to a Kimberly man who is trying to get into the Guinness World Records Book for building the largest Lincoln Logs structure.
That record stands at 10,036 Lincoln Logs, set by residents of the City of Lincoln in April 2013.
David Stumpf believes he smashed that record.
"Here is the last log. When I put it on we're going to say bingo. Bingo! That's it. How many logs? 17,384. That's unofficial," said David Stumpf.
And with that David Stumpf believes he will break the Guinness World Record for the largest Lincoln Logs structure by more than 7000 pieces.
"I feel a big accomplishment because this was a lot of work," said David.
David and his wife Judy spent more than 40 hours building their medieval castle.
Log after log, "Yeah, this was the real fun part because you had to it was very tedious work.
"These pieces here they go on one at a time. You know it wasn't like I could stack them," said David.
And there were some accidents, "I've knocked a couple of these down already. They hit the floor and pllll," said David.
But they still kept on building. David added some finishing touches, trees and people to make it look nice. But those pieces don't count in the total.
And if you're wondering how he kept track of all the logs. David kept his own unofficial count.
But it will be up to Guinness to decide if the structure will truly be a world record.
David received an email from Guinness saying his record application has been accepted. The couple sent video, pictures and other documentation. The standard verification process takes up to 12 weeks. .
