I wish I could share the colours and texture with you - I promise they look very like bricks. Click on the picture to see it full screen. I do have bits and bobs of filling in to do which is a deliberate choice. I thought it would be better to fix the basement fronts in place and then trim up around them where needed.
Needless to say I have just come up with another wheeze which will further delay getting the doors on. It is a funny old game this one - you set off on one job and four jobs later you are able to finish the original. Watch this space for a bogey hole.
Meanwhile this mess on the floor is why I love having a dedicated work area for my hobby. I feel lucky every day. I love my Hive. I can make all the mess I want and leave it each day and clear up when that task is finished.
I clear up all the surfaces and put things away between each major task so I don't end up knee deep in clutter.
So now, with the doors (very nearly) done, the surfaces cleared and cleaned and the floor swept, I am on to the next step.
