And about a bajillion shingles, lol. Not really, but shingling is not my favorite thing to do so it seems like it. The window box is finished. I have a few brackets to add to the porch and it's finished. Then the exterior just needs the rest of the shingles and the gable trim.
Then I will have to construct the spiral staircase, trim the dormer edges, and put baseboard in all the rooms. Then, finally, I can work on the furniture and accessories. The girls will be here this weekend so I am trying to get as much done as possible. If I put the house up on a shelf they won't even notice it. But a partially finished house is much more obvious.
After my break I will get back to work. Maybe I will have more photos later tonight. :-)
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
