It’s funny what new wood strips can inspire. I tore out the bad walls in the bathroom, put in beams, cut the ceiling, cut holes for the canned lights.
Tested canned lights–they work. Spent half an hour going over the wiring on the back of the house, organizing it, taping down wires, cleaning up that mess.
Hope to install ceiling today, then move on to through-window scene and maybe get the walls re-installed. Will be happy to just get the ceiling up.
It feels good to work on the house again. Course I’m looking at the 10 pairs of shutters on it realizing I will have to repaint them.
Just before Thanksgiving, my dad, who helped me build The Big House when I was sixteen, passed away. Needless to say, I haven’t done much with minis lately. Because he was in the hospital for a week, plus everything afterward, I got a long way behind on work, and the wherewithal to do minis was just gone.
I plan to continue working on the Big House and finish it in his honor. I had glued in some walls in the bathroom but had to pull them out and redo–this depressed me, so I slowed down.
I did get some canned lights to put in the ceiling, and once I get some wood strips for beams, I’ll install the ceiling, recut the walls, and move on.
Decorating / buying, etc. for Christmas also slowed me down! But I scored a gift certificate to Suzanne and Andrew’s minis. I plan to use that soon, which I hope will inspire me to get in there and get mini again!
