Slowly coming along. At some point the chandelier was taken down from the main hall and stored in the attic covered with a sheet to protect it from the dust. I'll need to get a better photo, I beaded it by hand. The floorboards in the attic are rotting through as the roof shingles have long been lost. The wallpaper in the hall is peeling off it's layers. The living room is dark as all the windows have been sealed with cement blocks or painted over to help prevent unwanted intruders. Next to add a front door...or maybe just plywood and graffiti it like the front porch?

Ludi your castle is awesome, it reminds me of the Italian Presepe. Good to have someone who knows what they're doing to help with the lights! I started to play around with LED lights from the dollar store, they have clip on book lights which are fairly easy to take apart and splice the wire as needed, although it sounds like whatever you end up with will be more refined. Smiley

I've been slowly working through trial and error, a lot of errors and starting over (especially with the stairs!) I finally got the tree done, outside portion, a branch is going to be growing in through a window upstairs which needs to be finished.

Another boring in progress detail pic...inspiration pics on the left (top personal, bottom from http://m.imgur.com/a/ImCht) I was excited when my husband brought home oranges, the mesh bag was perfect for adding the criss-cross pattern to the windows!

I finally have one outer wall mostly complete and have started working a bit on the interior rooms. I think I could redo an entire room in my real house quicker than this wee one Smiley
The lacy "molding" is actually ribbon. I need to get a couple more layers of paint on it to make it look like actual wood.

Oh Bunny, what I wouldn't give to get invited to this!

Ludi do share what you're plotting! The quotations around house do intrigue me!

My wee house has been vandalized!  Looks like some hooligans got at it and added some graffiti Smiley
 
I also decided to add stairs up to the attic in the front bump out, although they're looking a little rickety, I wonder if they'll hold up if anyone tried to use them? The window overlooking the upper veranda will be a doorway, wish I decided that before I started gluing it all together. Sad

I feel like I have my private set of cheerleaders! Smiley Made a little more progress, except I noticed that a lot of you have blogs...which are so much fun to poke around but takes away from crafting time!
So here are a couple of my in progress pics next to the inspiration pictures I'm using from here: http://m.imgur.com/a/ImCht

Some more in progress photos.  It doesn't look like much yet, but my wee house is coming along.

One more to show the slate roof too. The clips are holding the roof on since I cut off the tabs. Smiley
