Hi Msea,
This is looking good.
What sort of wallpaper will you be hanging, a nice floral number, or a more zany physcodelic affair?
I'm sure it will look great whatever you decide...!

Roof beams now made and fastened together.
When solid will add some tiles ( yes Zak I will put them the correct way round this time ) and put some wallpaper on the inside walls and flooring on both levels.
Wallpaper? Very posh.

All tiles fitted -- when dry and solid just the edges to cut to make it neat and then some colour

Some dark red on the roof tiles.  Last 2 photos are the door handle carved from a toothpick and then fitted into the door.

Wallpaper added to the walls and when it is dry and solid will cut out the windows and add the door to the inside of the wall

Are you available in February?, I am thinking of some home redecoration.

I usually make them from pinheads.

That's a good idea thank you Zak -
Yes I am available for decorating in Feb Kevin - but what do you wish to be damaged, broken or just plain made into about 10,000 bits - hohoho - even "she who must be obeyed" doesn.t let me decorate.

A start made on some corrugated iron to go outside the building - holes drilled and then some work with the drill and a file to make it look old and distressed  ( just like me - hohoho )

Problem - the acrylic is 0.5mm size and it will not go through the machine to make the corrugations. So another made from 0.3mm acrylic and this seems to work - will see what it looks like when painted.
This machine is another Christmas pressy from a couple of years ago for "she who must be obeyed" and is not now used, so has been acquired for my modelling - hohoho
