I am getting a little burned working on the Chantilly so I tucked it away and decided to pick a room from the Glenwood and actually finish it. When I took a good look from a far I noticed she is sagging - which we all know happens with age. She just needs a little support.
Yes - I know I could have just added 2x4's to the sides, but honestly I wanted to make the yard smaller so the house is not so overbearing in the room.
I removed all the furniture and accessories that were not attached down.
Removed the garage and starting take up the grass and outdoor pieces.
Look how she leans to the right. The house could have easily tipped.
My son Clay helped set the Glenwood on the ground. I did have to disconnect the light for the basement. Really hoping it goes back together smoothly, but I am not optimistic.
Removed the large sheet of wood that was sitting on the table.
The basement had to be removed and set back further. But now the stairs don't line up and that will drive me crazy! I am not cutting a new hole for the steps - imagination can be used for that - but they must line up!
Clay helped me take the house back off again so I could reposition the basement. I will still need room for the garage to sit on the table. This lines up better, but I have to make sure the front works with the pond. I may redo the basement some so things line up.
I am pretty excited about this. Yes, things look a little rough now, but paint, wallpaper and trim are wonders. Instead of just throwing 2x4's up, Jake (my husband) helped me cut some wood to make shelving below that is attached to the base of the table. I glued furniture sliders with quick grip on the underside of the shelving so the whole unit moves easily.
Koda's swing set will no long fit on the yard of the Glenwood. On the bottom right there will be a playground room box. I can add the shelves in various heights when I get wonderful ideas for a room box or storage.
I don't remember the last time I worked on my dermatology medical room box. I found a mayo stand on eBay that is just like what we have at work. This room is a copy of one of our surgery rooms. Should fit nicely under the Glenwood.
