Steve - I'll post photos and the patterns when I finish them up. There's a few photos from last year in this thread - viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1391&start=40

I was messing around with sand and making coconut. That was sort of a test house. I want to redo it.

update...3-5-2019...

greetings to all...two things...

first...here is a picture of my completed march, ten cent city house 3 in the series of 12...

second...i was "encouraged" :) (by an inquiry and a request via direct email) to post the patterns for these small houses more quickly so that the entire collection could be built and ready for display at the start of the holiday season...so...i'll probably be posting more houses per month starting soon...

my very best regards...

howard...
