  1. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Sanding the 100+ part stairs followed by two coats of stain and one coat of clear coat and then assembly took what seems like forever!
  2. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Just over a month into this build. That window trim sure makes this house pop!
  3. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    My daughter was finally allowed to play with the BH in process during a long weekend, then it was back up on the table!
  4. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This room will eventually be a disco that doubles as a bedroom. I will need space for electronics to run the lights and laser, so this space as well as the roof and chimney area to the right of this room will serve that purpose. I'll install a couple small hinges for ease of access.
  5. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I was fairly frugal with my use of siding, so I have plenty to use for wood / parkay flooring for most of the rooms.
  6. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    More templates made siding in this challenging area a breeze!
  7. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I turned the house around the following morning to get a better view of the front for sanding. I wish I had done this long ago.
  8. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I turned the house around the following morning to get a better view of the front for sanding. I wish I had done this long ago.
  9. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    The dining room is full of tiny siding pieces and sawdust at this point.
  10. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    OK, this was fun, but now I want to get through sanding so I can start on the best part - Painting!
  11. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This is easier than I thought it would be!
  12. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    It was about this point that I ran across a picture where another BH builder did an awesome job staining every other shingle an alternating color. That's something I want to duplicate, but that really should be done in advance. I think I'll give it a go and see if I can make it happen, otherwise it will be a uniformly dark stained roof.
  13. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I used wood glue to adhere the pre-built section in its final location. (The back wall was removed to ensure the template and installation was accurate.)
  14. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Pulling off the paper template and removing the few spots of hot glue that held it in place was easy!
  15. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    So simply flip it over and trim along the template edge.
  16. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Not having to pre-measure and precisely cut the shingles along the edges made this a few minute exercise. It was my fastest roof section despite its challenging location.
  17. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I put a small spot of hot-glue on the back of the bottom row to hold them in place on the template. The subsequent rows are only glued to the prior row so that the paper template can be easily removed later. Those Fiscar's scissor trimmers have been awesome at cutting the shingles and siding. They make precise cuts without destroying the delicate pieces. They also were useful for trimming some of the rough edges of the larger pieces before sanding.
  18. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Just a simple paper template to start with.
  19. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Thanks to others advice on the forum, I took the template approach to this area.
  20. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    The eve support trim was more of a challenge than expected! Many of those small pieces broke and sometimes disintegrated almost completely upon extraction. I think I had a couple poor boards here.
  21. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This is my favorite point in the construction of a 1:1 home. The rooms are just complete enough to clearly visualize the completed product with furnishings.
  22. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Boy, I'm happy I stained and clear-coated these stairs before installation! There is no way I could have sees what I was doing after they were in.
