Ivy Hollow - gable addition and window

by brae  

After making a base for the bump out on the gable, I put the building in dry fit to see if the depth was enough.

I added a slab of 1/8" inch thick plywood over the base.

I popped the gable window in place while adding the siding on the adjacent edge of the gable bump out.

I then added siding to the front. I'll finish the lower portion once I have the porch ceiling board in place.

As for the gable window, the thickness of the wall with the applied siding left a gap on the interior.

I added strip wood around the inner edge of the window to fill this gap.

I painted all the siding Vintage White by Folk Art (I've colorized the roof in the below pic since the white foam core board was rather stark).  The windows and doors are Woodland Green by Americana. More on the other windows and doors to come.

It's so cute. I love the green and white together. The roof line is really great.

It is looking fabulous! I love the character the little bump-out adds to the building - it is amazing how a 'little jiggle' like that can add so much character to a plain rectangle.

You make the window installation look so easy. I am struggling with an old Dura Craft kit, the San Franciscan. It's exciting to see the little post office progress.
