Busy-Busy! Completed walls and windows this morning...took a long time and many days to get this part done as windows had to be inserted, sills, frames, inside and out. All my construction has resulted in temporary takeover of an additional bedroom for a "completed parts table"...
This shot is of the completed primary tower sections. The added arches at right are for main entry and dining room entry.
Wall sections that have been papered. From lower left and going clockwise they are; Living Room where 1 of 2 fireplaces will be located; then the Master Bedroom (home to Prince & Princess, of course); top right is the children's bedroom, and lower right the kitchen wall.
Furniture, both completed and under construction. This is parts of three rooms with three more to complete after these. The gold brocade cloth is for dining chair seats, and possibly table cloth, plus seat and back for desk chair (larger chair in back).
Michael's Craft store is home to many of my purchases for wallpaper, cloth, etc. The wallpaper is actually from their scrapbooking area...the cloth they sell in 21 inch squares and they have hundreds of them.
Now busy using cast-off wood pieces to perfect my glue technique before I raise the walls. I'll do a lot of pics as I place walls so one can get the sense of the sequence involved....and it is involved. Once the primary walls are up and glued at the bottom, then the staircase and 2nd floor have to go in at the same time as they are interconnected. A challenge in which Duchess will be quite involved.
6 weeks til Christmas....
