I decided to complete the window and floor today at least.
I use Mylar* for the windows. This is perfect as it is clear and very firm to work with.
Cut 4 pieces of 'window framing', this will be fitted to the mylar.
Trimming the frames to fit the exterior architraves, i then carefully sliced down the centre of each piece of window framing, not fully through, but half way through the thickness and then slid the frame along the mylar.
The completed window with knob attached
Completed window - side
I have glued it to appear open.
A darker colour for the exterior frame.
Lighter colours for the interior
The exterior of the box is still to be completed, so any rough edges of the painting will be obscured when that is complete.
Affixing the flooring in sections to interior of room box
Skirting boards commenced.
First coat of water based polyurothane - 3 coats to do in total.
* Mylar, available from http://conservationsupplies.co.nz/lines/654.html
I buy all my conservation quality products from here. Highly recommend. SUPPORT KIWI BUSINESSES!
