Starting to look like the photo:
Here's how the hallway will look, and the third floor:
Understair is lit, and stocked with a tiny apple-shaped shelf unit that I found some teeny things to fit in:
Wanted some ceiling medallions, found a soft-metal variety pack on amazon:
Figured out that I can't start siding until I do the framing, painted white. I am spacing the siding at 3/8" instead of my usual 1/2"; It will take more siding but will hopefully look more in-scale to the house.
Having some fun with the ceilings: kitchen, and parlor (found the plastic lampshades at miniatures marketplace, spray-painted and added beadery to the edge of the one):
Finally (after much fussing) have the staircase done, and installed, so could install kitchen ceiling (staircase had to come first b/c the lighting was tied to it). That "hand-rail" looking trim along the wall is actually made from matboard strips, one of which being the neat beveled edge that comes with many matboard scraps from an art store.
