The Greenleaf Village Day 3

The General Store

I cut the corner opening on the back wall and assembled the building. This one is a little different because the front wall has tabs that fit into the slots at the front of the floor.

As the building dried I began painting the trim. I also painted all of the shutters.

I prepared the bay walls. The windows go on the bay walls before they can be assembled so I had to paint the interior edges of the bay windows since it can not be done after assembly. I then glued on the windows and then the bays. I wanted to put in the bays before I painted the house to use spackle around them to make them smooth and hide gaps. I spackled, applied the second coat of paint and all of the trim.

While that dried, I assembled the roof and set it to dry. I did it in the same way that I had for the first two buildings.

I then applied the windows and shutters. I had to see which windows corresponded to what wall with the schematic drawings. All of the windows of this building are very similar and it's hard to tell which one goes where.

I glued on the little bay roofs. I painted them in and out so that the edges underneath are finished. All of these processes were very simple like in other buildings. I painted the underside of the roof and shingled it. I also painted the underside of the building.

Finally, I needed an old time general store sign, so I printed one. I used a glue stick to glue it to a piece of scrap wood which I painted to match the buildings color scheme. Then I glued the completed sign to the roof above the door with tacky glue. I have to hold it in place for the night with a small piece of tape because the sign is at an angle to the roof line.
