The Porch!

Today we started making the porch. We had already painted the necessary parts and now we glue them on. At the same time we are setting up the porch roof. The porch roof ends hold the roof in place. After that we glued on the posts and railings. It was pretty tricky!

At this point we did not follow the instructions! They say to install the window shutters in the very end, but we did them now, before glueing the posts and railings. We figured that it would be very difficult to try to glue the shutters after building the porch!


Tänään teemme nukkekotiin kuistin. Olimme jo aikaisemmin maalanneet kaikki tarvittavat osat ja nyt me sitten liimaamme ne paikoilleen. Samaan aikaan laitetaan kuistille katto. Päätypalat pitävät kattoa paikoillaan. Sen jälkeen liimasimme muut osat.Oli muuten aika vaikeata saada osat suoraan!

Tässä kohtaa emme noudattaneet ohjeiden järjestystä. Ohjeissa nimittäin sanotaan, että ikkunaluukut liimataan paikoilleen ihan viimeiseksi. Mutta me liimasimme ne nyt, ennen kuistin osien liimaamista. Olimme sitä mieltä, etta kuistin rakentamisen jälkeen voisi olla aika hankalaa ujuttaa ikkunaluukkuja paikoilleen.

Hello Riikka(and all your other helpers.) I wrote a comment about your dollhouse back in July, but my computer has not been updating your blog (I keep the blogs I read bookmarked ) and so I missed what has been going on. Wow! you've been busy.
As for following instructions on the dollhouses...sometimes you just have to figure out a better way to accomplish something.. I totally understand the not- following-the-instructions idea.
Hope you are having a wonderful summer. I am also going to catch up on Laura's blog, too, altho I have not as yet, ever commented on her house. You both have done such great jobs! caitlin
