At last I've finished (almost) painting the lakehouse, just some paint dribbles to remove, lol, and one more coat of paint on the windows :)
The floorboards are marked out, and need plank ends and nailmarks added.
The next step is to fix the battens in place on the exterior walls.
Above are the white incised boards which are going to be the ceiling in the bedroom on the top floor.
The house piles which will raise the lakehouse up, and the incised decking have been aged/weathered with a couple of washes of very dilute black acrylic paint. This is the first time I have done any of this sort of thing, and I did lots of colour tests until my brain melted.
One of my problems is that I am usually so afraid of making mistakes that I end up not doing anything at all!! In the end I remembered a line from a Star Trek movie - 'just take your best guess, Mr Spock', lol!! Life's too short to worry so much!
BTW this house is a kit from The Dolls House Emporium 'The Retreat' (here) - if you take a look here you can see more of their fun kits for smaller projects. Their Tollhouse is going to be my medieval enchanter's tower, my next main project.
