Whole House

The darn thing is now too wide for me to keep on the workbench and actually get anything else done. It sits on the floor when I'm working in the garage and then gets put back up at night so the cats don't feel free to sleep in it.

The next step is to install the trim on the inside of the windows so that it doesn't show the white foam core. Then I have to make a decision on whether or not I'm going to give a very light stain wash to the ivory walls (they just seem so plain). After that's done (or the decision not to), I'll install the interior trim to the windows.

Next will come lighting (I'm using outlets, even on the ceiling fixtures and sconces by enclosing the outlets in wax-held boxes - you'll have to see it to understand what I'm talking about).

After the windows and lights will be the installation of all the floors and base trims. Because the rooms are 12" deep and wood flooring is only 11" (another thing I should've thought of), I'm doing some creative staining and piecing. Should be interesting.

Finally, I need to work on making the roof so I can also make the sunroof windows in the bedroom (see that 3" piece jutting up above the windows? that's going to have a horizontal row of windows). I also need to figure out what I'll be using for crown molding, if anything. I might just use some quarter-round.
