I still think you're fast - I've had my Cumberland Castle a lot longer than that (years!) and never got beyond the dry-build stage.

Cool Anything but normal

for me.
This house isn't the usual box with a roof, instead it's 2 rooms width and 2 rooms deep! So the most difficult thing to do will be: LIGHTS - or where do I hide the wires

To make these decisions I had to plan each room with furniture etc and the LIGHTS I want to use before I disassemble everything again.

At least I could undercoat everything with primer without worrying about LIGHTS
So lets start with that...

Cool Outside (Part 1)

was easy instead of the inside with LIGHTS - you see these will be my personal nightmare with this house

The building will be plastered: mix sawdust and white paint and voila: dollhouse plaster!
But don't forget to mask-tape parts for window/door frames




But how to decorate the bases of the bay windows. First thought: red bricks like Twoflower’s Memorabilia or beige ones like African View.
A trip to the hardware store showed a better solution: self-adhesive mosaics.

Cool Interlude: Doors & Windows

And while the plaster is drying the windows and doors are being stained - and unluckily (for me) mask-tape for a few again.



and the result of all the staining - hopefully I remember which frame belongs to what...

Cool Outside (Part 2)

Remember the self-adhesive mosaic?
This was the first try - doesn't look bad, or?
(And no I wont use the "stained glass" folie. I would love to have stained glass but didn't like the colors of this one)



And the finished front with tiles - and my very first grouting! - and stained windows.



That's it for todays posts

Me too. Thought about an engraved window but...
... with the stairs behind nothing really looked good sooo...
... change of plans and here the right side (before plastering).



And together with the front (no mosaic etc on left side)



So thats for now. This weekend I got a full list to do:
- clean-up my workroom
- disassemble the house (again)-
- make "channels" for the wirering
- and if still in the mood/got time: wallpapering and glueing on the frames
