I took a step back for a day, and read your comments. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I returned to the build with a clearer idea of what I needed to do next. One of those things turned out to be putting the first coat of 'creosote' on the side siding. Which suddenly made the whole thing look much better
And I've emailed someone to see if they can laser cut the extra roof beams I need to extend the roofline out over the pergola area. Because I know there's no way I can do that myself.
Meanwhile, I visited the newly-opened Canberra IKEA yesterday and couldn't resist buying a pair of light-up pears to add to my collection. Since I only need one in the collection, I thought the other would make an interesting garden sculpture for the build...
Speaking of IKEA, while I was there I noticed that they've added another set to their Huset range. Once again, out of scale for 1/12, but still tempting as the rug would work fine, the wardrobe doors could be hacked for front doors. And that dragon!
I may need to take Wendy out for a visit.
