Greetings to all...

It's a new month and time for a new project...one of my favorite little houses...a single-face cardboard "loggie"...this one was inspired by a very, very small and fuzzy picture in a country decorating magazine from quite a few years ago...I'll post a picture of the inspiration "loggie", work-in-progress photos and a link to the printed brick graphics in a day or so...

If you want or need a "basic primer" about "loggies"...go here...https://bigindoortrains.com/primer/buildings/loggies/loggie.htm

The free patterns, which are provided for your personal, non-commercial use are in the PDFs below the picture...

Update...3/7/2023...

Here are a couple of work-in-progress pictures of the loggie...

You can find the brick printed chimney graphics here...
https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2172

The details for making the cotton top roof have been covered in previous posts...but here's a quick overview...a cardboard roof covered with quilting batting and highlighted with selected areas of extra fine glitter...

I will be unable to post a picture of the inspiration house since it is under copyright by a well-known country decorating type magazine...

I really like the cotton top roof and how it reveals bumps and clumps of snow. I can see lots of ways to use this. Great idea!
