welcome to the biggest project i've ever done... a project in which terms like "mitered", "gable", "facia" and "boston lap ridgecap" became a part of my vocabulary (at least in my head)
each piece had to be painted, sanded, and painted again
the shingles had to be dyed
the porch floor measured, marked, and painted
and the walls & floors glued and taped
i painted the black and white floors... this will be the kitchen & dining room
the shutters & windows painted and glued
the shingles glued on one-by-one
i didn't get pics of the railings, but they had to be assembled piece by piece as well
michael made a platform for it... with casters and handles
so she can pull it out into the center of her room and play!
she really loves it!
