Terrain Tuesday - Raise the Roof!

This week's terrain project has been orientated around adding details to the little house to make it more... house-like for lack of a better term.  Windowsills have been added to each of the windows and the shutters have also been installed. Some minor patching was required to shore up gaps created by exposed foamcore, but the desired affect was readily achieved using some ready-made filler and a ice-cream stick.

With the windows done, I've moved onto the roof which, like the big house will be made of cardboard shingles - one of the most painful and drawn-out elements of the build due to the copious amounts of measuring and cutting that is required before each strip is glued into place.  I have to admit though, when it's done it does look quite effective (even if I do say so myself).

With half the roof done and the second half started, the next step will be to finish off the roof before starting on the door.  Once the door is installed, I can begin the basing process.

Catch you all later,
