After being totally sidetracked by a new project, I've gotten back to the wee house. I'm using black vinyl to simulate leather, hoping it'll make the exterior of the house reminiscent of a leather bound book. So far so good! I haven't attempted assembly yet, but all the main walls have been 'leathered' and the window frames installed. Initially I was annoyed with myself for having painted the frames and the window cross pieces the same copper colour, but now that it's coming together...I like it.

That looks awesome! I can't wait to see what it looks like once it's been assembled!  What's your theme going to be for the inside?

It looks terrific!  What interesting materials!  What type of glue are you using for the vinyl?

The theme is a little Borrower taking up residence in a dollhouse. I want it to be a little steampunky, but I also want to be able to use found items as well as minis Smiley  I've got the main part glued now and thinking about what I want to do with the roof. I'm not keen on those big tabs poking through and considering cutting them down and relying on glue?  Also, the glue I've used on everything, including the vinyl is Aleene's.

I severely dislike the tabs. For my next house I am cutting every single one of them. Well, the ones you can see anyway Wink Love Aleene's Tacky Glue, it has yet to let me down!
I'm still not sure about my theme and I'm having some major issues with scale. I tend to go too small, I think. I will post some pictures as soon as I can muster up the courage... I'm kind of embarrassed about how bad it looks right now.
