Greetings everyone! Been a while since I posted. I have busy building the childhood home of a customer of mine. Wow... :shock: lots of work, but-- I love it! Pretty much finished up, but now for some needed topiary. Howard was right when he said: "You could make more money working a 20 hour work week for Walmart than building a custom house!" Lol... :lol:

Clinton...
Looks just like one of those 1950s era lithograph tin doll houses! Haven’t seen those what I call “bird house” details at the roof peak in a long time!...yes...custom work eats up a lot of time to be sure!...

That is a beautiful replica, Clinton, a perfect glimpse at American suburbia. Thanks for sharing pictures. I am confident your customer will be pleased and it will bring back many fond memories.

Build on, Sir!

Great house Clinton, I love the split rail fence!! How did you go about making it? My childhood home had one in Iowa, someday Im hoping to make a putz of it.
Hope you're having a good holiday season!
