Update...10-3-2021...CHAPTER THREE...2021...

Skewed House With Awning...

Forum member, Lynn, sent me an image of a small house she thought would make a good candidate for another Ten Cent City house...and she was so right...

The patterns are in the PDF below the picture of my version and all the parts...it's ready to prime, paint, add the fine-grain sand finish and assemble...

Regarding the pattern...I suggest cutting the main roof, entry roof and foundation oversize...then cut and trim to get the best fit...these parts are sorta tricky since the walls of the house are skewed...it took me several cutouts to each to get them right...

Stay tuned...

Howard...
