Michael wanted something dramatic in this room…so he settled on building a staircase into the room sixteen feet wide. One problem, getting lumber in 16 foot lengths. A quick flight to the Northern Thai jungle ensued. There elephants ripped the chosen trees out of the ground with chains. Once dressed, the tree trunks were chained together thrown into the river and floated into Bangkok three days later, where they were met by Michael and crew at the dock.
