Hi I'm not sure if my previous post went through but my name is John, I have loved vintage Christmas and Putz houses since I was a kid. I had a tradition of helping my grandfather set up his Christmas village which had putz houses and over time he gave me a few. I have always wanted to learn how to build putz houses and Christmas village's. I started toying with the idea using 2 mil pic scraps from work. So far I have figured out a pattern and once I get the first one together I will post pictures, I look forward to discussing this awesome hobby with everyone here and thank you for having me on this fourm.

Hi, John. Welcome aboard. BTW, if you want to post pictures, please reduce them to 800 px wide. This software doesn't automatically resize them like Facebook does. I tried updating but it broke most of the site, so I went back to the old version.

Have a great two - oh - one - eight!

Paul

It seems that we are both new, not just at the forum, but at construction as well. I hope to complete my first putz house by the end of the month. Maybe you will too?
....feeling energized!
