The walls of the cottage are my first attempt at using the balsa foam. I used the soft stuff. Big mistake. WAY too soft,fragile and I am not a fan of the fuzzy surface. Live and learn. The foundation is done with my old standby....plaster. Lots of paper stuff and some PE. Tiles cast in resin.
This is about 1/2 done. Mr Cat came by to inspect.
