Linwood and Valieta Small   -   Navarre, Florida, USA.
Started April 24th, 2008  -   Completed June 30, 2008 (67 days!)

FIRST TO COMPLETE IN FLORIDA, USA. My wife and I were sick over the winter months so we were bored and started doing small puzzles, then we saw the World's Largest Puzzle online but we had to finish the other puzzles we had.

We were cramped for space in our home so we worked in our dining room using sawhorses and placed a piece of plywood on them, covered it with fabric and completed the 4 sections on foamboard.

We were very fearful as the third part was missing an entire 1000 piece section but luckily that section was in the fourth part, making for a frustrating time working on two sections at once.

We worked on it 2-3 hours nightly. After completion, we purchased three 4' x 8' foam insulation sheets and cut & taped them together, glued the puzzle, trimmed the board and nailed it to the wall.

The essay that Kelsey Gaessner wrote about working on this puzzle echoes my feelings exactly.
