Construction is taking a bit of a break

Well, I hoped to get the project finished before Jan. 29, the day I have to have surgery on my wrist.
But I didn't quite make it.... So..... I won't be doing much for a couple of days until the wrist tells me I can. I will know....

Don't not check up here though... I may be talking about other things. My left hand will still be able to type and even my right hand a bit since the surgery doesn't involve my fingers. We shall see.

I have started moving furniture into the house to see how it looks, I have ordered a few pieces I need and today I pulled out some fabrics from my stash to see what I can use for bed linens, curtains, maybe some pillows. I can at least do some planning.

Oh, and the weather today is really awful. It started out with snow, then sleet and freezing rain and then rain and now it seems to back to snow again. But the roads are clear thanks to a busy snow plow so that is good.

I will be able to move in soon.....


I got a lot of little details done on the doll house yesterday. Still seems to be a lot more but it is definitely coming to an end. I must add the corner trim, trim around the door and put on the front porch.
After that set up the room walls and move in the furniture.

I didn't get as much done as I had hoped yesterday cause I had another busy day in the shop. It was cold out but still nice so folks were out and about and some even had money....

Today I will continue to work. Hope to finish up by tonight.

Moving right along

Today I am beginning to put all the finishing touches on the house.
I am posting a picture showing where I am in the process.

I have put a bit of antiquing wash on the roof but it shows better in real life.
There are several more little things and I must finish the back roof shingles.... not too many of them. I need to touch up paint here and there and finish stenciling the front door and then putting on the porch. And finally putting up the rest of the "gingerbread." I am hopeful to finish up today. Yesterday was busy in my shop so I didn't get very much done.

I really need to finish this up in the next couple of days because I will be having some minor surgery on my right hand on Thursday and won't be able to do much for a few days afterwards. At least I don't think so but you never know.
