Mike, goo color on the siding, the chimney goes well with it. The shingles do look really good.

Thank you, Pete, Bob, Larry and Bill.

Bob, the foundation is straightforward plaster of Paris. I let it harden completely in the simple styrene mold I made, then carved stones with a dull X-Acto knife. I dampened the surface to soften it a little.

Nice job so far all around Mike. I really like your foundation carving work. Great job working in the stone shapes with that plaster.

In agreement with the others, great job. That foundation looks great too.

Hi,

Bob, I forgot to answer one of your questions. The Tichy windows come with paper shades that you install after the glazing. After doing two I decided the color was too close to the exterior fawn paint. I created my own shades by cutting a strip of off-white paper and lopping off lengths to represent shades. (The paper was a certificate I received for presenting a clinic at an NMRA regional convention. Just another benefit of membership!)

Windows are installed and a front porch is made.





I might do the platform in the back next. Undecided.

Mike

Looks great Mike, Still following along.

Cutting up a certificate is a bit extreme,
or a good way to de-clutter.

Thank you Bill, Pete, Carl and Rob.

Rob, I only cut off a strip along one edge, so damage was marginal.
