Greetings to all…

Here is a work-in-progress photo and a pattern sheet for a house I’ve built a few times over the years…I know I built a similar one back in 2009 before Paul stared the Cardboard Christmas Forum…but don’t believe I’ve ever posted it…

Just a few notes…

The house in the photo has larger, homemade windows but the pattern is drawn so you can use four CEL-10 windows and one CEL-12 window that is available from Pete…go here…
http://cardboardputzhouses.com/marketplace/cellophane/cellowindows.htm

The pointed entry roof can be a tricky to make…I’d suggest you transfer the pattern to cardboard and cut it oversize…then you can cut, trim and test fit until you get it right…

I’ll post a picture of the completed house in a few weeks…not sure about the colors just yet…stay tuned…

My very best regards…

Howard…
