Continuing............
Fitting the rafters..........there are an awful lot of these and I had to carefully thin them in order to fit into the holes and grooves.

It's a shame to cover them up.

I agree Curt and Bob it is a great shame covering them up..............
Continuing................I have been trying to get the landform looking OK. Unfortunately all my ground cover materials are at my holiday home which I am not allowed to visit under UK Gov't regulations until at least 02 December. I did find some real iron ore rocks though which I have used t the shoreline. The water is a combination of five colours = green, blue, black, tan and white.I think the colour looks OK so I have applied a first coat of Mod Podge.........

Hello Mike, what a great job on the base and the building looks very natural sitting on your waterfront space. I really like the water color.   Jeff

Thanks very much Curt and Jeff.
Continuing.............I have decided to deviate slightly. The front of the building has a canopy above the doors. I have made and painted the canopy but have decided not to use it. I like the inside detail and have spent quite a bit of time constructing the desks and tables etc. I think the canopy reduces the view of the interior and have decided to cover the pre-existing holes with a painted beam instead.
