Then two issues evolved which made me think it was worthy of a brief mention.
1. The interior flooring. We were not asked to do any interior work on the final, approved, estimate. But several wood strips were "popped" inside.

2. The front door gap. THIS IS WHY I HATE HINGES!!!!! This front opening door has a very noticeable gap at the top where the door panel has dropped (weight sagging it down?), creating a gap. Or maybe it was made this way and had nothing to do with gravity pulling on the door panel. We built the porch area back up, putting shims under the left side, when we reinstalled/fixed it to help push the panel back up so the gap is not as noticeable.
Overall the house came out cute:

Even just having a new shutter and roof color and having a fixed porch and front door on the exterior did create a before/after effect that I was not expecting.

Next up I'm finishing a customer's long overdue 1970s themed Ranch dollhouse and then (in July) we are getting in a dollhouse that has been in a family since about 1890 that needs some TLC!
