For those of you just tuning in, I started the Cake House almost two years ago. It’s a Greenleaf Fairfield, which was the first house I really wanted, but ended up being the fifth or sixth kit that we bought. I wasn’t sure when last time I’d worked on it was, so I looked back through the blog. It was way back in March! Wow!
Anyway, now that I’m back at it, here’s the update!
I painted and added the last missing trim piece for the exterior attic windows. (This piece broke when I popped it out of the sheet it was on, and I glued it then stopped working on this house.)
Sanded, painted, assembled, and installed exterior windows on the tower.
Oh goodness, look at all those windows! And this is just the interiors, exteriors and window sills!
This is all just trim….
Jeez. Now I remember why I like the little Chinese kits so much, lol. But I can do so much more with a kit like this.
I got all the interior window trim sanded and painted before dinner.
Second floor, front room (bedroom). Looking at the picture, now I’m not sure I’ll be able to fit the molding above the windows…
First floor, back room (Dining Room). Got these a little crooked. Crap.
First floor, front room (Parlor/Living Room). Wow. Just… wow. Could I have screwed these up any worse? So crooked…
Finally, the view down the upstairs hall.
Having taken these pictures, I now realize I painted the hall window trim the totally wrong color. This after already discovering that I’d painted the trim for the bathroom and kitchen the wrong color. Aaaarrrggghhh!!! Can’t rip it back off though; one of the pieces of trim is holding ripped wallpaper in place. I think I’m done for the night. Time to go play some Miku instead.
Merry Christmas everyone. I wish you and yours a joyous holiday season!
