Mum of 2. Let go of all my interests for a few years and found I was missing something - thus my turn to miniatures! Haved loved anything 'little' since I was very young :) But then I bought a sewing machine.....
Last night and today I prepared the roof & celing. Lots of drying time, still not finished with the timber bits, just took some photo's to record where I'm up to :) Not long to go now till I have a complete building - finishing touches/cleanups oh and some windows and a door LOL
Managed to get the place together a little more.. it's still only 3pm :) woohoo!! Going to get SOO much done!
Spray paint :) LOVE it!!
Roof.. so far.. it won't go on till the place is finished.. and SO much to do to it ;-)
Possibly got wayyyy too much corrigated cardboard - but I do have another project requiring it :)
Not finished.. but looking good! Cans of dog food holding down icy pole sticks too LOL Daunting job.. but hey.. it's going to be worth it! The deadline for me is getting nearer.. 2 more working days off.. then the weekend. REALLY want to get this done!
I am at the stage now where I have NO idea what I'm doing LOL.. popsicle sticks (aka icy pole sticks - whatever you want to call them) are going to be used for the decking outside. I don't have a door to fit this doorway.. have to adapt something. Some paint touch-ups needed here and there. But I DO see this looking how I had pictured.. eventually..
Posts.. just the beginning..
Skirting.. oh yes mastered the mitre box ;-) LOL The floor isn't quite finished.. just working out how to fix what I don't like about it..
Today I'm working on completing the roofing.. lots of painting, sanding, cussing haha! Hope it works out ok. Grateful for the gorgeous weather we're having!
I play Guild wars 2 - recently they had a diorama contest - you can click on the entrants to see their work (the honourable mentions below the winning pics) - some awesome stuff there! Check them out :)
A little bit of progress, not lots because it was raining on and off today so I couldn't really work outside. I wish I had a shed or garage to work in! Anyway - here's today's effort.. I had to paint inside - a couple of coats on the building..
This is son #2's new desk - he is painting also - I borrowed a corner!
Undercoat and a first coat of paint on the windows.
Tomorrow I hope to finish the windows - hope I have a steady enough hand ;-)
Finally it's here - 2 weeks off work! Going to be very busy as I need to finish the mystery box and get photo's up this week, and I have been researching for a project I want to work on.. all I can say at this stage is that I am using the kit below. I bought this a year ago, paid $20 for it (on sale).. not realising the shipping to Australia would be so much! My total spend? $97.99 haha!!
