my first houses

Never having constructed this type of house, I decided that it's high time I look into buying one of the books by Gwen and Freddie..  It took me way more than 15 minutes to come up with my two.  The one on the left my version of a southern antebellum home.  The one on the right is my log cabin in the pines. However, I have learned one thing.  This house thing can get one hooked pretty quickly.  I just might have to make another before I send these out to Lynn.
A very merry Christmas to everyone.

They may have taken 'way more than 15 minutes' but it was well worth it!!!
The better you get the easier and faster it'll be.
I can't wait to try my hand at them!

Yes...please don't stop. You are really getting the hang of this whimsy-nessl Your antebellum is charming and your log cabin is close to nature. Bpth remind me of a way of life that is rare nowadays. Thanks for the reminder.
