Out with the old-In with the new.
So, the old farmhouse,on the right, has been rebuilt to something more suitable.See the new one on the left.
The original was a quick build to complete the farm buildings and ,to be honest, went wrong. The windows were too large and making them with paper labels didn't work.
So the old one was removed, measured and the replacement was marked out on mounting card, cut out and covered with the old Builderplus 'N' gauge brickpaper. Windows have been salvaged from an old card kit that happened to be the right size. The porch was fabricated from bits in the odd's box, gutters and down pipes are plastic strip.Chimney pot's, one with a cowl are from the 3mm Society range.
Next is to place in position and secure, most of it will be behind a tree but I know it's there.
Add to this the resoldering of one rail at the baseboard join, replacement fence on the down platform and I think it was a fruitful day. Happy Easter to all.
