I love your work! Are you going to hang battery operated dollhouse size Christmas lights on the inside, or do they not put off enough light?

Thanks guys. OGR not batty yet but getting there fast. Tikilongbeach, I haven't thought that much about lights lately but it's always an option. I finished the glue up of the roof and I may try this out on a build. It will need a lot more details to start looking like a traders hut. Please excuse my beat up hands but they make my living in the real world.

Thanks guys. Still not sure about the roof design but going ahead with some detail pieces. The glue up is always the longest wait in the building process. The small pieces will be gables. Also putting structural pieces to stiffen the roof up a bit.

Love it Trav! Those gables have a great Polynesian upsweep to them.

Thank you MDM. My huts are not based on any real native design. I make the design up as I go. Thanks for taking a look.

Wow that glue time must really take some patience! Looking swanky so far!

Thank you for the compliments. I'm doing a bit of pre-shellacking to seal the soft balsa wood. This will get rid of any light colored wood and also give a good surface to apply the thatch to. Another wait time for this stuff to dry.

I am starting to do some of the detail work on the gables on the roof. The inside of the gables will be closed off. I am thinking of painting the flat fronts of the gable with some type of New Guinea inspired design and further detailed in real bamboo. Still a long way to go on this one.
