      Christmas Village Building Part 2

      Boy, did I get behind posting these!

      This is how the layout starts, sawhorse legs and white painted boards. The one board is set aside until the bay window is filled.



      Then my "dumb waiter" starts bringing up boxes and boxes while I separate them into approximate areas they will be placed.



      Someone got bored with it all.



      Bay window being loaded.



      Not long before the electrician will have to be called in for his expertise.



      These are the totes I call the "extras". All the little stuff to fit in between the houses.







      Last board up and starting the city. Town hall is the first to go in.



      A definite labor of love.

      Will post pictures of the finished village when my camera recharges.
