The Taft General Store dollhouse - Days 04 to 10

Hello, my good people!

I forgot to update my blog... BAD ME, BAD!
I did lots of things and now I'm choosing floors... Choices are mean!
But ANYWAY, here what I had done:

I glued the strips of the door side panels in place (although I decided to discard that later on):

I added the roof trimmings:

I made a third floor with cardboard, mansard style roof:

Roof was up!:

Front-ish roof was up:

 The open back trimmings were added:

Testing the best placement for the second floor inner wall :

I ended choosing this one:

I unglued the front-ish roof so I could cut the staircase head-gap (?):

And I added a little window for the bathroom in the third floor:

The hard work to make a spiral staircase from scratch was painful:

 The front door was taped in place and the little window seats glued so I could make the floor templates:

The 'glass' tiles on the front entrance was taped so they are not damaged:

My choice for the ground floor, two kinds of glass tile:

I did try some tiles for the exterior, but I didn't have enough tiles to finish the front. If I find more of the same thin ones I'll do it.
What do you think? YEY or NEY:

I also added the third floor' inner wall:

And now I'm cutting popsicle sticks for the second floor (hall/living area and kitchen/dinning are). For the third floor I think I'll use tiles on the bathroom and wood for the bedroom area.

That's all for now,
