House with panels removed

One more Wagon Wheel light to go into the top left nursery room. I may put a few more table candle lights in. There are now a total of 74 lights.

All the removable panels

Finished !!! year later....and now taking up half the living room :o)
I will glue scatter to the green areas.

The Base

Paving for the base.....

Roof line

After 4 washes with a dark brown and then a bit of green to get the 'mould' effect. All the panels look the same. I really like the 'varying' roof line. It's exactly as I wanted it......

Last Roof Panel

This roof panel will be removable.

Final Roof Panel

Panel finished. Just needs to dry now and then I can wash it to match all the other panels.
Claying the outside and doing the 'tile' look.
Beams all stained and the white clay laid on.

Roof beams


I have been looking forward to this bit. I wanted the roof ceilings to be a feature with nice beam work.....


Doing the ridge tiles. Note the hint of green in the roof wash so it looks like a real roof would with a hint of mould from damp. I think the use of clay has worked out ok for the roof tile effect.

Roof Panels

Had to send Karen out to buy a clamp. Managed the whole build without one of these.....but should have bought one earlier really as it would have come in very handy. At least I will now have it for the next build.
