Default my local auction buy

Well I have decided to be brave and show a few pictures of work so far on my local auction find. I believe it to be an Ash House. It was already mainly put together which some may think is good but I am finding very awkward for painting etc.

As you can see the outside is now blue and white. Thinking to have the main front door a glossy black. The cobbles at the front are not stuck down as I do not have enough (bought at miniatura) and not sure which company I got them from. Have wiggled one divider around to make the stairs on one side but can go no further as waiting on doors (did not come with any).

However it did come with enough suitable lighting for all the rooms except the attic so cannot complain.

It also came with roof tile sheets but have decided to do individual tiles as prefer the look of these.

So many ideas but so little time or money

You are doing a great job on this one. The colours on the front look really nice.
