looking good Howard.

I think your snow on the roof is looking "snowier"

Are the arched windows homemade or store bought.

steve...

the windows were "store bought"...i call them "church windows"...i think i got them years ago from ted but never got around to using them until now...i'm pretty sure you can get them from pete ...go here...look for the number "CEL-4"...that's the size i used on this house...

the round attic window is just a piece of red acetate...

the snow on the roof is "snow-tex"...i've been using the product for several years now...this coating must be heavier and look "snowier" than usual...

my very best regards...howard...

Perfect tribute the original. Love the grey and pink together. I never really thought about that color combo, and when I bought my house, my whole living room was grey with pink trim. :)
