And here is the front view of the structure as it is today. There is still plenty of work to be done to the roof and underground portion of the base, but I've made a lot of progress in the past few days.
With only four inches to spare between the tops of the chimneys to my ceiling, this structure truly is a big one! Not to mention, heavy.
The downspout was made from aluminum tubing.

Here is the front door. True to the story, there is trash strewn about along the sidewalk and front steps. I may add a few more pieces of trash as I run across the right pieces, but for now this will do. Also notice the "12" over the front door.

I had one of those very happy accidents with this part of the project. As I was using the ebony stain to color the flooring, trims, etc. I had a lot on my fingers since I forgot to wear rubber gloves during the process. Well, while handling these windows in order to get them ready to be glued into place, I accidentally got a smudge of ebony stain on them. It made them look dirty and I really liked it. So, I deliberately smudged some stain from my fingers on more of the window and door surfaces and was really tickled at the look I was getting. I had been wondering how I would achieve the look of age on the windows successfully and this happy little accident gave me exactly the look I wanted.

The is the part of the dining room that is on the inside of the large door that swings open to reveal the inside of the structure. There are still window and door trims to put up, but I couldn't wait any longer to take a picture. I'm very pleased with the direction this project is taking.
