Terrell, I am just getting caught up with your last project and you have started another. The house is just fantastic.

I must confess this will make a terrific little build. Sort of a respite from you last few mega builds.

Slow but steady progress.





I debated for a while on whether or not to detail the rear. But I went with it.



And as you can see I've started on the roof.

I had fully planned on leaving the top of the tower open and add a bell. Good and good sized bells are hard to find. I had one I'd planned on using but when I got to looking at it I felt it was just too big. I did find one (in a pack of 72} that was a good size. But in thinking about it, and researching more, it seems the open tower is atypical. So I'm closing it in, with sound slats, more typical.

Fred, looks good to me. There are lots of old churches like that around here and it looks like
you are heading in the right direction.

Looks great so far Fred.

What is that "easy on the eyes" dark blue background? Is that a wall in your shop?

Nice looking sound sound slats, Fred. Good solution to your bell problem.

Thanks, Bob. I think I'm making the right decision.

Carl, that's a sheet of blue foamcore I bought at Walmart several years ago strictly to use as a back drop.

Thanks, George.

Quick update.



I haven't decided on the roofing material for the steeple yet.
