So here is the house, dry built! Yey! I cannot include the front panels or the roof panels because they are obviously attached with hinges and I haven't got round to that yet. But it's somewhat reassuring that I have managed to get it all together like this! Tomorrow, I shall glue it. I did consider painting the ceilings first but I think I will paint them after gluing so if I do get paint on the other walls, I can paper over them last. My greatest fear regarding the house is that the walls expand with the paint or wallpaper paste and it no longer slots together!

I have decided that my shop is going to Edwardian. I bought a lovely little book from
http://www.amazon.co.uk/ last week which is going to really help me choose the correct decor. I would really recommend the books in this range- they are small enough to put in your handbag but very imformative and have loads of photos of all the rooms in an Edwardian house, including the exterior.

Until next time!
