I today completed the rear middle roof shingles. The work was tedious as is much of what is involved here, but productive in that I love the result.
The kitchen tower top is under construction also. It will soon be ready for shingles.
I also completed the form for the chimney, and painted the bands around the chimney (the chimney has 16 pieces!) Tomorrow the completion of the kitchen tower top and the chimney and then the roof for the rest of the house will be ready.
In addition I will be adding the porch and glue will be used to make it permanent. I love this thing, and really hope I am ready for the trip West to Texas for Christmas.
