  1. TGIF! Im am so happy with the progress of my Glencroft! I started yesterday by gluing some of the remaining facade pieces. The upstairs gables were glued in and I was able to finally make my sub-walls out of foam board for the upstairs! (See pictures below). Once I finally had the front walls all tacked, I was able to start planning the Stone Portico/Porch that I will be adding to the front. I plan on making this out of 3/4 plywood to give the walls a heavy stone thickness but at first I wanted to make it out of foam board so I can get an idea how the finished product will
  2. Happy Thursday! Yesterday ended up being a much more productive day than I had previously anticipated. I picked up a couple sheets of foam board and traced and cut out all my sub-walls! Since I thought this would take much longer, I ended up having time to finally start gluing the house together! I ended up gluing almost the entire front facade. The fireplace wall and staircase will be glued in later after I pre-finish the staircase pieces. (Once glued down, this part will be super hard to reach comfortably) The pictures I attached below were all taken this morning and sho
  3. So I finally received my kit and couldnt have been more excited. A few hours, and about 2000 splinters later... I had all my pieces out and labeled. I also received the fireplace mantle that I was going to jimmy into the livingroom wall. The first thing I wanted to focus on was the initial kit-bashing. Since I had all the pieced loose and easy to work with, I marked off all my lines and made all the cuts and I can already envision all the finishes! The major Kit Changes I made were: Livingroom: • Inset a new stone-look fireplace and center on the wall of the living roo
  4. Good Morning! So Im very excited that all my kit-bashed pieces that I set overnight came out great! The new front facade fits perfect together. You can see in the picture below that the bottom window no longer overhangs but goes down to the ground now. I did this because I will eventually be covering that part of the facade in stone and thought it would look better, plus, it gave me more room to make the window slighly taller from the top and bottom. The livingroom is going to be a jugsaw puzzle of dark stained paneling so I want this room to receive as much natural light as possible

    Door, windows, are all scratch-built. Because I had very particular design ideas, and because it's cool to see what I can do without breaking the bank.


 Without breaking the bank much, that is. There are probably cheaper hobbies but I don't want to know about them.

    Good grief, this thing is getting huge!


 Well, in our tiny apartment, somehow we don't know any better than to build huge mini projects. Eventually, we'll have to sleep on the windowsills when there's no space left in here.

    Here I've closed up part of the open roof wall and added a dormer to it, along with bashing a big hole at the very top of the roof to set in a long, vented cupola that sugar shacks, especially in Québec, often have to aid in the evaporation process. All of this bashing significantly changed the strength of the building in various places, resulting in the need for a whole lot of brass rods drilled into the connections to reinforce the remaining wood. 


Ah, well, bash and learn!

    In this shot you can see that the scratchbuilt shop has a huge opening on the wall which meets up with the Contest kit. In the kit house, the opening was designed to accommodate a garage door but I elected to use the opening to merge the two buildings, as if the shack had once had a solid wall which the Aucoins tore out to attach their shiny new shop and make the entire place hang together as a whole.

    Of course I knew the measurements from before the kit arrived, but this was my first chance to see right in front of me, exactly how much space this multi-part project was going to take up!
