Thought I’d take a few minutes to step back and see where I was with the house.
So here’s a 360 degree view of what I have so far in proportion to the room around it (everyone who has seen it in real life has commented on how small it looks compared to the blog photos):
This is where the rest of the house will be hooked up (dining room on the left, back stairs and food pantry on the right, upstairs hallway on top). The nursery will, of course, have another wall to finish it off.
This is where you can really see how the downstairs floor is angled inward and where I had to add slivers of wood to make the second floor level. Luckily the back siding will cover all this and you won’t be able to tell.
Compared with where it was two months ago (https://cider12.wordpress.com/2013/02/07/second-floor-walls/), I feel like I’ve been chugging along pretty well, in spite of a busy work schedule and several trips to Philly.
Now to finish the nursery (it’s still missing a wall, the floor boards, the base boards, the wallpaper trim, and a ceiling) and then I can get to work on the back siding and the rooftop for this section…
Very cool to see the actual dimensions … it does look bigger in the pictures!
Funny thing is that even in these photos, it still looks bigger than it does in real life…guess the camera really does add ten pounds! 🙂
