Skookum - that roof is great ! I debated doing a pine cone roof and then when I started to gather the pine cone seeds and realize how many I would need for my giant roof....I went back to the drawing board
Is your roof made of bark? It looks awesome !
We have been hit with a frigid cold snap here, and therefore I took a holiday from my little house because the summer kitchen that I use as a craft roof was about 4 degrees (Celsius) and the log cabin attached to it where the wood shop is set up was about -25C......so cold that when you touched the table saw I swear your fingertips were instantly frost bitten
Well I sucked it up today and finished cutting out my pieces, dry fit them all together and gave it a base coat. Tonight after the little one was in bed I started working on the decor part
I have to say - the posts here have helped me tremendously while working on my first little house - tips like "decorate BEFORE you put in all together" especially. I would have def thought you'd put it all together and start the decor....and I would have been cursing....ALOT. There were already a few choice words this evening when my wood wainscotting (which I thought looked really cool BTW) buckled and popped while it dried ..Boo!! So I just painted on a wood effect instead, not as textural, but I was bummed out and wanted something there so it satisfied me for tonight - I still may change it...we'll see.
The main floor will be kitchen on the left with a big stone cook fire, family room on the right.
No centre dividing wall on the main floor so I have attempted to make paperclay branches that will act as support beams (this is a gnome house) I haven't worked with paperclay before so that was really fun - I think that the next one will go even better know that I know a few tricks via trial and error.
Top floor will be library comfy reading room with fireplace on the left and bedroom on the right. I'll try my hand at making some of those cute mini books
I am going to do both floors as a wooden strip floor using the iron on veneer technique I saw posted on here.
Sorry about the links - I haven't posted enough yet to put pics in
Thanks again for all the great info !
