A gentle wander clock-wise round the outside

Standard

so far

Lots of drying and touching up and more drying been needed over the past week but this is the tale to date …

The frontage we’ve met before but now has finished and squared off corners of brickwork.
You can see the join for opening the house just to the left of the upstairs window and the right of the downstairs (hallway) window

Looking down the long side here the raised brick edging is going on in strips cut thinly from foam board and marked up with the back of a blade.

The lower windows have brick reveals and and all the windows still need a little faux lead under the cills or something similar

Days later the raised brick finished and this back corner decorated with the brick to square it off

The raised brick top trim drying in place on the back face.

In the above photo you can see down the un-worked side on the left. Am still making choices about that one.  Part of this unfinished face ‘lives’ with the front removable part of the house and part with the main body of the house.  I’d like a little of it (where it meets) to overlap and it’s the materials and finish I’m pondering.  Which will cost less, cope with being handled better, wear better, will warp less with time?  Also what if I finally decide to actually build the next door semi, how will it fit if at all?

But plenty to do in the meantime …
