A touch of Provence: French Stone and Stucco Cottage Dollhouse

My next dollhouse project is a stone and stucco cottage you might find in the south of France. My inspiration for this one is L'assiette  de Marie a restaurant in St.Remy de Provence which appeared in Victoria Magazine in August 1998.
I love the atmosphere this place has. My house will hopefully capture the same charm.
I have cut out my windows and made the floor which will be the traditional terra cotta square tile.
This is the stone side of the house. I'm applying the concrete here. It's just like frosting a cake.
The front is stucco.
And this side has stone and stucco.
Inside, 2 walls are stucco and 1 wall stone.
The ceiling is wood Popsicle sticks. 
I painted inside and out with a cream primer.
