My wife was thinking the house was looking alittle plain so she ask me to do something to give it alittle pick me up. Much to my surprise I did something right. She loved the front porch and was real happy with it but then I made the cupola and she was tickled pink. Now I will wait for another idea to come out of her pretty head.

Great job! Really looks good with the matching bird house. You two obviously make a good team – her ideas, your craftsmanship. Thanks for sharing.

you need to start working on the attic access ladder now.
I can envision those grandkids wanting to get up into it and look out.
the matching birdhouse is a very nice touch !!
great addition to your wife’s castle !!

Job well done.
