The door under the stairs is looking good, it reminds me of the one I did in Clifton House, although mine was to give the impression of a way down to the basement. Good luck with the single door.

Hi Reg,
Well done on the stair case. The extra storage under the stairs looks great and fits perfectly. It could be even a passage to the "below".

The staircase and room below look very realistic, you have great carpentry skills.

It looks really good Reg and will look even better when it has a loo in it. Good luck with the doors.

Thanks to all for your replies and interest in Elsa's Cottage. I have nearly finished the French door and hope to post some photos in the next day or so. I have also made some small windows to place at the top of the stairs - will post pics of these also.

Default Photos of progress made

As promised, I have taken some pics of the french door, as well as some windows I have made from scratch. Also the staircase after its first coat of varnish and the downstairs loo with toilet in position!

First, the French door which I am quite pleased with....



Next the two small windows I have built from scratch using basswood scraps and some picture rail moulding for the frame. They are still to be painted and glazed...



The staircase has had its first coat of medium oak varnish. I don't want it too dark so may finish with clear satin varnish....



The toilet for the downstairs loo arrived yesterday so I will be deciding on its position but for now here it is....



I have also bought a wash basin for the loo (photo in my album) but not sure if it will be used as it may not be visible depending on the final positioning of the loo.

Hope you all find this interesting and, as always, I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
