  1. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Everybody's got have to have a place they don't always clean up for visitors! Looks like this is where the Aucoins have left their just-chopped wood, not all of it stacked yet, along with a couple of sap buckets and various other clutter.
  2. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Well, chopping all that mini wood and stacking it must have been tiring. It looks like someone's taken off before they were quite finished, judging from the mess! A snow this light isn't much of an excuse, but maybe a miniature excuse for not finishing the chore is enough. ;)
  3. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The wood is stacked nicely in the shed... well, except for that bit that didn't get finished. Look at the sawdust and wood chips all over the place, and there are a couple of empty syrup-buckets just hanging around, too. This is the not-quite-neat side that no tiny sugar-shop-customers should get to see!
  4. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The lean-to woodshed rests against one wall of the sugar shack. I hope the electric company doesn't need to read the meter soon, because it looks like one of the Aucoins has left a pile of unfinished wood for chopping, right in the way of a meter-reader! Maybe the light dusting of snow over everything looked like it was going to turn into something worse.

    The woodshed, filled. As I mentioned in an earlier image of this lean-to shed, the flooring which I took such pains with ended up almost completely obscured, once the wood piles went in. Ah, well. This step, adding the wood, looks easier than it was. First, since I live in an apartment, I have no back yard from which to readily grab sticks, so I spent all year, from April to November, trying to remember to stop and scavenge whenever I saw what looked like very straight sticks/ branches lying on the ground anywhere in my travels. Hopefully all you miniaturists have experienced the twinge of embarrassment of picking up weird things for mini use when you're out and about, right? Right? o.O And second—as it turns out, when choosing straight branches, so they won't look crazy-wiggly in scale, you can never really choose straight enough. Try as I might I had to throw out a bunch of sections of the branches I'd collected at the end, because when cut down to only a couple of inches long they looked like some sci-fi-fantasy-movie prop and not like real logs intended for a "real" wood fire. I also have new respect for folks who make neat stacks of wood like this in real life. There is a technique to getting them not to roll off the pile as you add more and more... one that I have not mastered yet, even with my lightweight scale logs. I'd have crushed quite a few toes if these were real-sized.

    From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The woodshed, more like a lean-to, shows the red "corrugated tin" roof that all the buildings of this project sport, and a faux cement floor made by mixing a few shades of grey and black paint with a sanded acrylic medium. (The same effect could probably be achieved with actual sand mixed into paint, but I had some medium lying around so this is how I did it.) I spread the paint-sand mixture on a bit thickly, then scraped off, to get the look of a real hand-troweled cement floor. This is one of those silly things miniaturists do... in the end, after the wood piles moved in, very little of that gorgeous floor shows. Well, at least I know it's there!
