Finally! I have been able to take The Arthur out of it's box, and start building it. Actually, I thought it might be easier to glue the clapboard siding on before I built it, but I soon realsied that it would be impossible to line the sides up with the front unless I built it up to a point. So here it is.
I will put the porch roof on once I've done the siding, as well as all the window and door trims, porch trim etc.
I will put the back roof on when I've done the interior as it's easier to paint and sand and paper without the roof coming down.
I haven't decided on whether or not to put the gingerbread trim on the roof - I guess I will wait and see, and I'm also not 100% sure which colours to use.
But the best part? I have all the time in the world now, no deadline, and no rush. I'm going to take my time and enjoy the process.
And can I tell you a little secret? I already know that this will be Holly's house, as promised, and that I will build myself another house, one day. Maybe one with more rooms ;-)
PS I haven't forgotten about Tilly, she's just waiting on some more colour, and then we'll do a draw and see who she'll be heading off to. Soon, I promise.
