Photo updates: Front steps and new portico.
Had a fairly productive weekend. I carved the front steps from foam and built the portico shell. Now all the detail work needs to be started.
I also continued working on the decorative trim.
Still have one small strip to add and it will be finished. Some of the trim will be falling away from the house and/or sagging. I need to simulate wood rot on the corners and ends.
The new portico. It will completely enclose the front.
Portico roof. Part of the roof will be collapsed in exposing the construction beams and adding a truly run down appearance.
The front steps section one. I carved this out of foam and have coated it in sanded grout. The cracks are carved in. Still needs to be aged.
Here it is dry fit in place. It will not be fully attached until the structure is installed on the landscaping base so it can be "sunk" in place.
