Fixing Things...

I had no square stock that would fit the crack, so I am using round. It works just as well.  It will all be covered.
I started the stucco this morning.  I have one end done...Three more to go.  Yes, there is some wall on either end of the fourth side.
I am going to have to make a piece to match the one on this end. It was part of the porch.  I may only have to cut the bottom of the piece off.  I will have to go hunt through the pile to see.


I re did the roof on the "bay". 

It is simple enough to do.  I just folded a piece of cardstock in half and started cutting.

First the top to the angle that I wanted the roof to sit against the wall.

Then the bottom was easy.  I simply drew a line to indicate where the bottom of the roof would be.  The same measurement all the way across from the edge of the bay, itself.
Then, on the jigsaw, I cut two pieces.  One just a tad larger than the other one, so that they would overlap the width of the wood.

I now have a roof!

I am going to take a break and have lunch with the squirrels.

Then back to work.

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. Well someone should comment on how hard you are working on this little
house!
I inherited a small house with those horrible punched-out pieces for the porch. Not
pretty! But I left them because I don't have the tools or experience to deal with
them.
Have you ever taken a sharp knife and tried to improve the appearance of these
pieces without taking them off the house?
Every time I look at this little house, I tell myself how much better it would look if I just repainted it. I should do that.

I like the improvements you are making on this LILY dollhouse kit! And I am also glad that you are committed to the 'NO GOING BACK" policy of building- full steam ahead Casey! :D

Elizabeth, that's usually how I do things. Full speed ahead. I am slowly getting back to normal.
