Looking very, very good to me!

I'm really enjoying the different approaches in different scales here, and am learning in the process. Life is Good.

Thanks, Everyone !!
Now I'm through with bricks, at least until I get to the chimneys.



I still need to color, mortar and weather.

The foundation is colored and mortared.



And knowing darn well I'll rip them off a 1/2 dozen times before I'm through with this project I went ahead and glued the roof gutters in place. So I could paint the upper part (an adventure in itself) and get the rectangly things to melt into the woodwork.



Now I'm off to build basement windows. And getting alarmingly close to having to go back up on the roof. [:-scared]

The individually-done bricks look so real. The colors you used enhance the degree of irregularitiy in the bricks, which is just right.

Fred, you say that those bricks are made from paper? They look like they were done in hydrocal! Perfect. Looking to see what you plan for the center bottom on top of the stairs.
