Way over-engineered of course, but looks the part.
Not sure why it took me so long, though making a workbench without a workbench to make it on certainly added to the time.
Anyway it's done and now all I've got to do is 2 bunk beds, a kitchen for the main house, a mini kitchen for the studio, 3 sets of shutters for the french doors and some storage cupboards. Oh and a kennel for Jesse.
Mmmm ... maybe 3 January 2014 is a bit optimistic.
