OK. You are going to think that you are seeing triple...But you're not.
Yesterday, I was relaxing and watching boring TV. As is usual when Walter is watching sports, I am in the bedroom watching anything else that I can find.
On the wall, to the right of me, was this....
It was crying out for attention. Poor little wall shelf house...
I grabbed some paints and brushes and started listening and it started talking. Loudly....
It was all white and brown. First I started painting the rooms different colors. Then I had to go back and touch up the brown...Then I had to go back and touch up the colors in the rooms....Back and forth I went.
After that, I finished shingling the right side of the peaked roof.
Then I started laying flooring in some of the rooms. I still have five floor spaces to go. Considering that three of them are the entrance to the place, and will probably be cobblestone of some sort, I am not doing too bad.
The slanted left roof had to be covered, so I cut a piece of illustration board to fit and glued it on. That will be covered with shingles, but I was shingled out for the day. That will come later today or tomorrow....Sometime soon.....Promise.
Since the outside of the house is basically half timber Tudor style, I decided that the person that owned it was an alchemist kind of guy with an interest in the stars and other sciences.
The top peaked roof would have to be an observatory. Thus the stars....I have been saving that wallpaper sample since the 80s. I knew it would come in handy someday....I imagine that the entryway on the right bottom leads into a courtyard, thus the view of the dark above that section. No stars. Too low. Just darkness.
The rooms in the tower section will be a series of four shops. I am not sure what kind yet.The row of rooms at the bottom will be The wine cellar, which I have already worked on, and the scullery, kitchen, a pantry for storage and maybe a laundry or some other essential room.
The living area will be in the five larger rooms above.
The fun has just begun. Please don't disturb the six year old's attention span. I want it to last for at least as long as the house is talking to me.
See you tomorrow.
