Hello fellow builders. I'd like to share with you pictures of my latest commission. The wife of a fellow collector sent me three pictures of their house and asked me to charactorize their home as a Putz House. Today was his Birthday and I just got word that he opened it. You always get nervous before the unveiling but here's what he said... "Just wanted to let you know that I opened my birthday present and was pleasantly surprised to see that you created our house in the Putz design. WOW!! Fabulous construction and realism. I want thank you for the wonderful surprise. Truly remarkable." Phew, now on to the next project.

Love the "skirting" around the base of the house as opposed to a fence. Wonderful work
