    Cheers Jess. The curved findings are from Joann They conduct heat very well, be careful if soldering. The yellow and white wires running from each LED are actually fine enough to fit through the tiny tubes. It took more effort to get 6 wires (3 LEDs) through the series of stacked beads (also from Joann).

    Thanks Jess, I just wanted to give it a go - I'm pleased enough with the pewter finish. I like your metallic paint suggestion on the tubing - I'll have to experiment.
  3. It took ages, only have to repeat the process 3 more times . looking at these pics again - I even liked the floor au natural - but it wasn't very period looking.

    Some stained glass or wooden lites in the windows is what I'm planning for the sidelights and transom - fingers crossed.

    Garfield Kit bash

    I've drawn upon, and learnt so much by viewing other peoples galleries, I thought I'd throw my own updates out there. Progress will likely be slow on this build (I'm a busy man ) but I look forward to sharing some updates/progress pics with you.
  10. Thank you Holly - I wish I could fit in some of these homes
  11. Hi Robin, The Garfield is a great wee architectural marvel, and you've done a splendid job in it's assembly here. Looking forward to viewing your gallery and future projects . Like you, I've drawn upon lots of inspiration from other's photos/posts of this home on here. Folks are so creative, I love seeing (and stealing ) all the ideas.

    The Garfield

    Hi Sally, I know you completed this house ages ago, but just wanted to thank you for all the inspiration your gallery has given me for my own Garfield which I've just recently started. As with your Fairfield, this wee house was beautifully detailed and finished. Lucky buyer got this one . Thank you! Michael

    Garfield Bash

    Hi Matt, Your Garfield gallery (and others) have been inspiration heaven for me the last few weeks as I've searched for ideas and how to's. I just started my own Garfield few weeks ago, and I loved your attention to detail on the exterior of this build, the addition of the dormer window and scaled porch. Just amazing! Thank you.
  14. Hi Tanya - I love your wee house - you did a great job on the staircase. I Just started building mine in December 2020 and realizing just what an undertaking it is lol . I'm looking forward to seeing some more updates. I'll hopefully get some photos of my own in a Gallery shortly. Needless to say, my staircase (especially the attic stairs) didn't turn out as straight or true as yours. But I went with the white paintwork and stained treads also. Happy Building!
