The finishing touches... 

After going through several pictures of Victorian Houses for ideas I ended up doing something simple for the gables. Didn't want to overwhelm the house with too much "visual noise" and this option also seamed to fit well with the tower roof. Took me nearly the whole weekend to cut and paint all the little bits of wood but it's finally done!!!

I really like your treatment of the eaves. I was always going to do the vertical boards on the eaves of my San Franciscan but know I need to consider those horizontal trims. Very pretty.:clap:

Thank you! I saw this style in several houses with gable trims, looks really nice on both high and low pitch roofs, or even mixed with brackets.

Do you have details anywhere about what trim you used or in progress pictures of how you made it? It is nice and delicate/fine compared to the kit trim. I especially like the swirly bits that match with upper the porch railings.

Hi Muriel,

It looks like Ashley hasn't visited the forum for awhile, so I'll answer your question since I used many of the same trim pieces on my Fairfield.  They're from Vintage Victorian Dollhouse Woodworks.  They have a primary website:

They also have stores on Etsy and Ebay.
