Good progress. I do like the way you explain the thought process, it's really interesting.

Wonderful, Steve. A lot of work and talent in it as always. Again an eye-candy. Hope to make some games on all these new (over three years) boards. Maybe you should do the BLAM alone in your local pub.


Itís a nice thought Dirk but my local doesnít have a function room :D

The last 3 years have slipped by and Iíve been nowhere near as productive as I should have been. Though I think I am - finally - starting to focus on particular interests. Lol

The window and door holes have been backfilled for their fittings and the structure of the roof is on.



When the glue holding the sand has gone off, Iíll trim the roof structure then add a thin layer of filler for the substance of the turves.

Thanks all for the feedback  :D

Itís no coincidence that the last couple of days Iíve been DIYing and as the tub of plaster was outÖÖ  ;D

the coo-beasties will feel right at home there  :)

Well coo-beastie was a new one on me that I had to Google, which also turned up this phrase:

ďWee Hieland coo beastieĒ

Now thatís imaginative expression! 8) :D

All thatís left to be done:
1) More sand to base
2) Fit shutters, doors and gate
3) Add milliput lip to base
4) Paint
5) Foliage (including grass to roof)
