This area is a bit hard to decorate, low ceilling, narrow passage... also not easy to get a goog angle with my phone lol. I've left the top rail detacheable to be easier to access, otherwise I'd be struggling to arrange everything with tweezers :p

Nice job.  I know you weren't sure what to do with this area.  This was an excellent solution.  Is that an open book on the table?

I'm still working on it, playing around with ideas, I think it's asking for a bench under that table, or a chest/trunk. And yes it is an open book, I used the bookstand kit from Arjen, a bit too pretty to be hidden like that but it just looked so nice next to the window. I made a shelf for the other wall but I think it was a bit too wide for the space. I have one vintage piece that could look good there but is in such a state of disrepair I haven't had the patience to fix it (veneer is badly stained and missing broken parts).

That really is a nice bookstand. Arjen (not sure if male or female) does some really nice kits.

I love this photo - so warm looking. How on earth did you get the crown molding in there? This hobby does require a certain agility (or being a contortionist).

Hehe, indeed I struggled a bit here but here's how I did it:  

1) I glued the tower roof + ceilling and the tower walls to the front section of the roof, while I left the back section in dry fit (the part of the roof with the opening) I applied the wallpapper inside and the ceilling template. 

2) Before gluing in the windows, I cut and painted the crown molding and adjusted it in place by inserting my finger through the window holes in the tower.

3) I attached the interior window trims in the same way, then after setting the floor template in I finally glued the second portion of the roof and shingled the house :D

When I'm working I try to test everything before assembling it so that I can find the easiest way to do things, so I did most of the interior finishes before gluing some exterior portions of the house and had extra space/openings I could use. It's possible to apply the moldings after the house is built as well, just a bit thougher to get to some places.
