I've got 18" of white crap, but it's going to be in the 50's all week. We'll be swimming by Wednesday!

Got a little ambitious today and broke out the paints. Working on one of the gables. Still more to do.

Thanks BK!! Did a bit more work. Not as steady with a tiny paint brush as I used to be.

Both of my crew members at work have the flu so I have a free day to work on the hut. I am starting to thatch the roof. As with my other builds this is done with literally hundreds and hundreds of tiny cuts along paper strips by hand. The thatch will be stained after it is all applied. Thanks for taking a look.

Here's yet another update. Thatch is done on one side of the roof. Bamboo detailing is going on today and the gable is still just a dry fit. I have finally made a major upgrade to my shop. I purchased a miniature chop saw to cut the bamboo as this makes a nice clean cut. The saw blade is two inches in diameter, the quarter is just for a size reference. All of my other cuts are totally hand done. Thanks for stopping by.

My hands aren't as steady with a small paintbrush either. However your painting looks perfect. I love all the steps and all your buildings. Wendy
