To see entire project click here

Started front wall: 

The archway is cut out. Above arch added 5.5mm plywood + poster board to = 1/4" thickness, cut on band saw, will finish with inside trim (veneer or poster board.) String between window & archway for outdoor & entry wiring.

2nd floor:  
Did an old painted floor upstairs - needs more sanding tho. 

Opening on the right is for spiral staircase.

Framing & windows done in main section.  Need to do entry addition & wrought iron spiral staircase.  Thats all, LOL...

Now all I need to do is make some kind of mold to cast each of the 15 steps I'll need :) The railing can be made from a heavy gauge wire & the balusters maybe twisted wire, solder it all together & presto - Victorian staircase!

This is only a mock up of the spiral staircase. 
Cut mat board treads (wedges), used hole punch to fit them over 3/16" dowel...

Its not as big & intrusive as I thought it might be...
