Here's some furniture to go on the porch. I was going to make some chairs but checked my
stash of 1/2 scale furniture and found the straight back chair and rocking chair.
Perfect, that's what's on the porch of the original structure. I made the table by
turning the trunk from resin and adding the top and "legs". The decorations are the same
as used all around. The real porch swing is loaded with the same Christmas decorations so
I think I will do the same before I hang it.

Great details for the porch, Bob. It is nice to have a stash to dip into.

Bob, you early riser, your newest furniture additions will make your front porch even more inviting.

Bruce and Greg, thanks for your posts.
Greg, been up for hours.

Here's a shot to see if the porch lights light up the furniture. I'd like to get some outside shots but it's been snowing all night.

Which reminds me, I have been thinking about adding a bit of snow to this structure???

Bob,
Beautiful! Go for a touch of snow. It will make a perfect "going home for Christmas" theme build!

Bill, Dave, Greg, and Bruce, thanks for your comments.

Here it is sitting on my workbench, too much snow to take it outside for photos. This is
how it looks before I add any "model snow".




Just for the heck of it I tried to get a photo close to the same angle as the original
photo. You can see the difference that resulted from my squashing down the roofs a
bit to make a smaller model. I still like it and will live with it, it was a neccessary change for me.



I still hope to get some outside shots after I add the light snow. Other than that I guess
I have to call it finished.

Bob

The porch decorations and furniture give your house a most welcoming look. You did an excellent job on all the porch details.

Thanks for your comments George, Greg, Carl, and Mike.

I added a little model snow to the structure and I made it light. I didn't want to cover
up any of the structure. I think I will add a little more tomorrow.

I love it!
