I decided to start building the floor boards for the two front sections of the house today (two sections instead of one so they can easily fit through doorways…)

Began with the paper plans I had made earlier…

Cut out one of the floors…

Transferred the position of the walls and doorways…

Cut out the walls so I could pass studs through them later, created a base for underneath, and started gluing the beams between the two layers (oh, and Cider showed up in this photo because he wanted to go for a walk…)

Ran out of wood for the beams so I couldn’t finish, but here’s what I have so far…

Haven’t started the right-hand floor yet because I’m a bit stymied when it comes to drawing the octagonal tower. But I’ll figure that out later.

Next, I decided I didn’t like the green on the siding…clashed too much with the colors inside the rooms.  So I repainted it all with two coats of tan paint.

A bit duller, but I already like it better…

And it doesn’t make a mess with the rest of the house anymore…

Still not sure if I’d rather not just replace the siding between the rooms with polished wood, but that can wait for now..

Be well.
