The Front is All Together---Yea!!!

This is the finishing of the bay.  I put the base or floor on the  bottom of the bay and mark where the exposed area is so I will know where to put the black paint.
I also marked the top or the ceiling of the bay.
This is the top and bottom on the bay-not painted or glued yet.
The base came in three pieces and this is them being glued together and clamped.

I only primed the areas that were not being glued.
Painting black only where I primed.  I buy the best paint on the market and it still take eternity to dry.
 This is the bay and it's top and bottom all glued in place-HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!

This is the roof screwed in place.  My hubby put a dab of glue on the screw before he screwed it in.  The white triangles are the back of the brick/plaster wallpaper I got from itsy bitsy-they have COOL wallpaper.  I am going to bring the dollhouse (after the glue drys two days) into my library to trim up the wallpaper and put on the shingles.  I am hoping my daughter, Michelle, can come over after the shingles are on and help hook up the transformers (2).  Then the house goes in place permanently and the rooms get their lights and furniture.  Yea-can't wait!
Thanks for reading my blog.

Kate! It's AWESOME! You know, I feel a little close to this house because I was instrumental in its naming, way back when...

BTW, thank you for your kind words re; Merriman Park. I just got the lights going, if you care to check it out?

It must be a really good feeling to see such progress on the house and to know you are getting close to completion. It will be good to see it with lights and furniture.
