greetings to all...

there's just so much to like about lynn's coconut house...and i knew i had to make one for myself...thus, with her permission, i've drafted a pattern which you can download for free via the PDF below...

this house also fits in perfectly with all the "Pack-O-Fun" houses i've posted here on the forum...here's a link to the series...
https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1554

my house does has a little different fence arrangement...but it's still the same basic house...mine will probably have a different color scheme and glitter finish rather than coconut...i'll post a picture of my finished house in a week or so...

my very best regards...

howard...

update...10-20-2019...

greetings to all...

first...here is a side-by-side picture of lynn's yellow coconut house next to my blue glitter version of the same house...i choose to put mine on a raised base and did a little different take on the front fence...otherwise, the houses were built from the same basic pattern...guess you could call them sisters or first cousins...

second...a picture of my blue version taken from a different view...wasn't sure how the blue, red and green would look together...always seem second guess my color choices...until i see the finished house...

my very best regards...

howard...
