2021 House Number Four…Added 04/9/2021...

Greetings to all...

Like most of the others in this 2021 House Project topic...this house has been on my project list for quite a while...probably a number of years...I can't remember when or where I found the photo...but I do like the design...

I don't have a picture of my version in raw cardboard that I can show you now...but will post a picture of the finished house later...

The two pattern sheets are in the PDFs below the photo of the vintage inspiration house...note...I suggest you cut the roofs slightly oversize and trim for the best fit...the same goes for the length of the two front columns...you'll also see that I did change the fence design on my version...

Stay tuned...

Howard...

update...4-11-2021...

House 4 in the 2021 series...very much a "work-in-progress" right now...it's "paint and wait" for it to dry and then paint some more...may change the fence to a purple of some kind...the entry roof will be glued on after the two little windows are glued in place...stay tuned...

Howard...

May have it finished by the weekend...that’s the plan...and I did change the fence color to purple/plum...it looks better with three colors rather than just orange and green...
