update...11-25-2018...

this project is finished...but it looks a little drab on a blue background...but it's actually quite colorful in the proper setting...

and my 10+ year old digital camera seems to be a little confused and won't focus like it used to...

my very best regards...

howard...

Nice Howard! Really love the colors. I have been working on my own train station, but haven't even finished the design yet. Lots of inspiration here!

Yes, Steve, the windows are homemade...hand cut card stock mullions painted with my favorite "emperor's gold" paint...red acetate window panes...

Well, this is certainly a long thread - and so interesting. Thanks for all your posting Howard; that is quite a happy village you have there - a nice accomplishment.

Greetings to all...

The three houses pictured below were built using the free patterns that Lucy posted on her topic and her blog about the 12 Houses of Christmas...go here for all the details..

https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1636

i did make a few small cosmetic changes so they would fit on the 3" x 4 1/2" x 3/4" Pack-O-Fun house size base...

Merry Christmas...

Howard...
