How can a mission be move a little bit?
And why did they just move it a little?
Some of your questions have improper grammar, but it is a good project.
How is the bell wall decorated?
400 rose bushes is a lot!!!
Do you have any information about the soldiers quarters?
In the last question it should be because instead of since.
