Here's a link so you can see more of the inspiration house. Love it. Contemporary Forest House.
|Can you see the ridges and lines?|
Lots of thin strips of wood. 1/8th by 1/16th to be precise.
|They're so thin they bend easily. And that's helpful for a curved roof.|
|All aged and everything. Looks pretty good I think.|
But I wanted a more metallic gleam to the roof. So I got some metallic chocolate brown paint. I didn't like how glittery it was though. See?
|Almost sparkly. I do not want and Edward Cullen roof. No.|
It was raining and icky for the last couple of days so I could have let the actual weather do the work for me but even I'm not crazy enough to try that.
|A bit better right?|
|Still a bit of a gleam but not too bad.|
|Slowly but surely, it's coming together.|
|Here we are. I can't wait to put the white stucco onto the wood. The contrast'll be awesome.|
I also, while waiting for the roof to dry in between coats of paint and gluing, got the platform bed stained and varnished.
|I'm pretty pleased with it.|
|Not perfect, but pretty good for my first attempt.|
The only issue?
The area is rather...exposed... to cat inspections.
Cats who have a history of stealing my flowers and electrical tape.
So we'll see how this goes.
