... to this...
It needs a few more coats of paint, windows, doors, stonework.... a lot of work! But the house is taking shape slowly. The staircase tower will be on the left, and the kitchen and still room will be at the back. I will make a roombox extension for the kitchen, and think it will take a few years to get to that point!
The last windowto have stonework added is from the study - I am thinking of making it into French windows opening onto the (future) garden.
The roof will have proper crow step gables (currently it is just a piece of foam board!) and chimneys. And of course a slate roof! Ideally, I would like real slate, but wonder if it might be a little too heavy.
I used foam board to mock up the porch
Here is a little watercolour I painted to show what I hope Daviot House will eventually look like! You can see the staircase tower on the left hand side
This is a very inspirational house, Ford House in Lothian. I love the garden and slightly sagging roof!
