Good morning to all…

I really like small houses that fit in with the other “Pack-O-Fun” houses I’ve made over the last year or so…now, here’s another one…

I’ll let the pattern sheet and photos tell the story...other than to mention a couple of things...

Pre-bend the “bow” in each roof section before trying to glue it to the house body…I pre-bent mine by wrapping around a bloom handle…

In addition to clothespins and paper clamps, I used gift wrap tape to temporally hold the multiple little glue tabs on the edge of the body in place while the glue dried…the tape was removed before attaching the roof…

If there are any questions…let me know…

My very best regards…

Howard…

Howard,
I love this house. What a perfect little home for the pack o'fun sized houses. I can't tell you how much it helps me to make a house with an "under roof". It really keeps the house square, more support to the roof - not to mention that it makes the house so much easier to cut out.

I look forward to making a bow roof house now.

Lucy
