Thank you to Linda who emailed me about my Grand Stair in my Mansion! Your email has motivated me to return to this blog and to update it! Mansion is still in progress (I know, you're all shocked by that). Here's a photo of my playing with my Bespaq Grand stairs which came in the Majestic Mansion's Palace kit (for Linda):
The faint line on the wood above the stairs is where the steps must go to, so I have to add a stair or two to the bottom -- which will also help it clear the doorway opening that is under it too (see top photo).
In the past year, my Dad also built me a base: The base in the photo below is for under the main house (another one is being made for under the addition part of the house). Yes, it is just as large, if not larger than, my coffee table and longer than my dog (who I think is trying to chew on it already!) Luckily Dad put it on caster wheels so I can roll it around cuz it's gonna be huge! The open space will be divided into kitchen and staff rooms!
I'm glad to be back - and now I can tell you about all the projects I have in process and not just this one that I dream about . . . .
