30 Months!!! HolyCow! Poor little neglected project! Well I am trying to make it up to the clue house by paying LOTS of attention to him!
I made a list of things I needed to do and I just threw myself into it. It also helps that my parents got my a huge industrial grade table that this guy fits on so I don't have to wait for DH to get home to move my project where I need him!
Here's a photo of how the house came to me ... all $5 worth of him lol.
I realized I need to glue him back together before I could do anything else. His roof was unattached and pieces were missing... luckily it came with a big pile of broken pieces to look through.
I finally found all the pieces for the roof and missing attic walls. He was not fitting together so great so I decided this would be a job for Gorilla Glue! And lots of it. I personally hate the stuff because it puffs up and can ruin your nice clean corners. But this guy needed something that would puff up and fill in the gaps where the pieces didn't fit.
Here he is clamped up to where I thought at any moment he might implode!
That's it for now. I have big plans for this guy. I was going to give up on him but I got a second wind to try and turn this amazing house into the beauty it's supposed to be! Wish me luck! -Ara
