Greetings to all…

First, a little history lesson…go here and scroll down to the “clock house” category…
https://cardboardchristmas.com/papateds/goldenage.html

Here’s a link to the clock/school house reproduction that forum member, Will, recently completed…
https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1233
He sent his pattern to me so that I could redraw it in the smaller “Pack-O-Fun”…see the pattern and photo below…

If the “Pack-O-Fun” houses are new to you…go here…
https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=723

I’ll used one of the ¾” diameter clock faces Paul has made available here…
https://cardboardchristmas.com/html/printed_resources.html

Just a note about making the house…it’s all pretty straightforward…but I must tell you it took me several tries to get the two front peak roofs to fit properly…I’d suggest you make them slightly oversized and carefully trim and cut to fit…

Have fun with this house…and share your creations with us…

Howard…

Howard, you have done a great job on this piece! Yes everyone, the peak roofs are a BEAR to install! I too had the same problems Howard was experiencing. I just love the whole "Pack-0-Fun" putz house line that Howard has so graciously shared with us here. I intend to build them all soon! Thanks again my good friend... Have fun everyone! I too can't wait to see everyone's rendition of this little classic!... :mrgreen:

Cheers to all,

Will ~_*

Greetings my friends! I had some time in between projects to build Howard's lil' "Pack-0-Fun" school house. Used some of my 1st ever batches of coco to give it a little color and even did some "green spots" on it. It was really FUN to do. Try it! I think you'll agree... :mrgreen:

Wow! That roofline might be a bear to do, but the result is wonderful! Love the dots!
