Paris Shop and Apartment Almost Done

Last update before the Paris Shop and Apartment is done!
 This is where the plaster exterior went onto the house. I use any patching  plaster from the hardware store.  Also put up all the trims. And the concrete floor on the porch.
 The elaborate trim is from Ebay. The other simpler trim is from Hobby Lobby.
 The window trims are Popsicle sticks cut lengthwise.
 Here we added columns. They are just regular large square dowels trimmed with Popsicle sticks at the top and bottom. You can get these types of dowels at craft or hardware stores.
 Also all the aging is done. Brown ink pads work wonders!
 The tops of the roofs are "metal" which is really strips of cardboard.

 All the wires are pulled together on top of the house. They control the lights and fireplace. We'll have a chimney to hide it all.
That's it for now. The next post will be Monday or Tuesday of the finished house with furniture too.
See  you then!
