Finished shingling! Yay! And most of the trimming. I’m not sure which is more tedious–shingling or trimming (it’s shingling). I’ve also started the railings: Have top porch done and most of staircase. Still to do, front porch.

Top porch railings finished.

 

View from the front. Porch still needs to be finished, plus gable apexes.

Back view. Note that I decided not to stain or paint the shingles. A test looked terrible! Had to pull off the test patch and re-shingle.

Staircases in with second floor railing in place. Will add  a gallery rail on the top floor (so mini inhabitants don’t fall from the loft).
