The Half Scale Saga - Pt. 3 - The Exterior

We're almost there! The deadline looms and the interior work continues, but I can finally see the finish line. It's good there is a finish date or I would never stop adding and tinkering or designing.

I did the photo shoot for the exterior, bathroom and kitchen in one session. I used a white sheet background because the best light in my backyard didn't translate into the nicest part of my yard to use as a backdrop. And I didn't feel like attracting the neighbours by shooting in my front yard =;)

Voila! The exterior is complete and is child friendly(ish). Lots of construction adhesive and No More Nails were used, along with satin finish polyurethane. I ended up putting a raised edge along the grass perimeter to help ensure little fingers wouldn't have an exposed loose grass edge to pick at (and glued it in place with construction adhesive).
