The Newport was an October 10th birthday gift (and not a Christmas gift as I had first assumed when I gave the lady the estimate for a finished painted Newport in the middle of September). So, we had limited time to get this project together. Luckily in the past year or so Mom and I had partially assembled a Newport kit and it was sitting in the store so that saved me a great deal of time! Just had to prime and stain the interior, insert the interior walls, assemble and paint the majority of the exterior trims and stairs, and paint the roof panels as customer did not want shingles.

Stairs were painted white (because they were MDF it was all we could do since Medium Density Fiberboard won't take stain nicely):
|And ready to play!|
Recently we have been working on this little lady too:

We were unable to get the porch railings off the house without the risk of breaking the posts or the siding of the house, so we painted around them. Took a little extra bit of time, but Dad helped with the wall painting and I went around the small bits and posts and stuff: it was a fun team effort!
