Shhh, Rana is sleeping in her forming foam doll house set, which is coming together better than I thought.
All the exterior and interior walls of the cottage have been triple decker sandwiched up and fitted with pegs at their bottoms (jokes? I dare you.) to slot into holes drilled into the set today. The perimeter is divided into five removable sections that lift up and out of the way for filming and animating access. The corners where the sections meet up will be nicely concealed by wooden trim pieces, as will the window panes once they're installed.
Next step will be to rake the surface of the foam with a fork (instead of wrapping it in screening) and plaster them up.
Next challenge will be to cut the roof support beams with Clare and decide between thatching or textured balsa planks for the roofing material to put on top of them. And how to configure the roof with the wall sections so sections of it can also come apart and be removed. Hmm, maybe hinges.
Take good care, All.
