The fireplace made it into the end wall a little while back. The grate will get wood and firelight. Am really looking forward to putting the wall in and working on the stairs, I like stairs. I picked a new name for the house .... but can't remember it now. I did write it down.... but there's this messy thing happening on my desk and the paper is hiding. The stone powder on the fire surround worked in the end with a lot of applications and sanding to give the look of rough-dressed stone, enough to give the impression of it anyway :) The little guys with all the personality sitting on the mantle are Skele Bottles and Pumpkin Pot made by Nikki Rowe of Witch and Wizard Miniatures. I couldn't resist, I just love their character and facial expressions and the detailing is great. Nikki is a fantastic polymer clay talent.
Ahah! Rebekah (eldest child) remembered the name - Drostan Park. Thank you Rebekah for having a better memory than me.
