A Quarrelsome Coventry.

The Greenleaf Coventry oh how you frazzle me. It has been a battle of the wills with this little house. With my Buttercup everything went along so smoothly that I was constantly thinking I had done something wrong. Well the Coventry made up for that thinking by making sure everything did go wrong. But a challenge forces one to think outside his or her box. Many times for me I was so way outside my box that I couldn't find my way back. Fixing up a design or plan so much that I defeated the initial idea entirely. Trials and tribulations. Thank goodness it's not a real house. The attic space. Was going to be a bathroom and main bedroom. Not so sure now. Thinking of adding wall to make a main bedroom still, wall gives me somewhere to put a light! Ceiling to low for a hanging one. But where I was going to put in a washroom of sorts but I could envisage a little wrought iron bed for a little girl. Built in cupboard in the nook. Doll on the little stool. Argh decisions!! The downstairs area is kitchen and living. For the staircase I found for $5 on a Canadian site a narrow steep stair, bought heap of them for all the houses I have stashed under beds etc. I cut it through about 3/4 way up made a return from balsa and then used the rest to enter into the attic space. Not sure what to do with the little room. Can't decide!! Was thinking of a reading/study space The roof will be tiled. I'll use 2.5mm balsa cut into varying lengths and widths stained first in a dirty paint wash.
