Time for some shingles!

Terrain week. House.  Then another house.  Balsa wood.  Foam, Glue.

Raise the roof!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This time...  chimney.  An improvement over early attempts over a year ago.

Putting wood planks on the sides of the house.

And the roof.  Cereal box time!  And more balsa wood.

2.5 hours later... roof!

Once all the glue dried, this darn thing was really strong!!!

But wait... that was just the sample!

More shingles.  But this time, made out of cereal boxes. :-)  Conservation is key!  Very green, as in saving my wallet.

Some Oxide Paste for additional texture and strength.

    1. Thanks! Much less dangerous than when I had to put real wood shingles on a real roof :-)

  2. Every day it's a pleasure to watch you work.

    1. Many thanks for the kind words, and taking the time to check out the blog!

  3. You're a machine doing all those shingles by hand! Especially from balsa wood. Awesome work.

    1. Thanks! It is a lot of work, but it is also very neat to see the results. ;-)
