Attaching the roof to the my version of the Chantilly was more time consuming than I figured. There were a lot of little gaps that need patched.
The back wall peak needed to be filled.
Also how the back of the roof is raised, that left a gap in the ceiling.
They were filled and I added some support beams.
Should I leave them as they are, or paint them white?

I removed the second floor porch to make the first floor, and used other wood that is a little thicker to make the second floor.
This is how the kits recommends making the house:
Here is mine. The window in the bedroom side will be turned into a door for access to the porch.
