The Victorian House has started!!!!

 Yes I am super excited. We have finally started my Victorian House. (Remember I received this great kit at Easter)

So far things are going together fairly easy. The house has a tower extension that at this stage is not attached to the house. I have to admit we made one mistake so far. We put the door openings that go into the tower in the wrong place. We had a slight panic but we think it will work with not too much problems.

 The first floor partition walls are also going to need changing. (This time not our fault but the kit manufactures) If we keep the walls where they are on the kit the window surrounds will need to be trimmed and will look wrong.....its funny they actually made the same mistake in our real house so all the architraves had to be trimmed down...does look strange to one else has noticed. Its funny how your real life home can impact on your mini choices.

I am loving having the tower. Two decent sized rooms with a bonus mini room at the top. I thought that room would be a perfect observatory room...I just need the telescope!

I haven't put any windows in the right side of the house. They are in the kit, ready to go but I'm not sure about them. I'm thinking that this end of the house will have a chimney...and the windows would get in the way. Any suggestions? I thought I could have a properly built in stove if I do this. Does anyone have any good tutorials out there for chimneys?

Anyway...I know its just the beginning and there is lots to do ...its a good start.
