Winding Way, Step 9

Finishing the house


Most of the house was done except the solarium, side porch and sleeping porch. These were the parts of the house that had been altered, and I had to use the client's photographs from the 60's to reconstruct it as it was then.

I pored over these photos with a magnifying glass to paint with the best accuracy I could. At this point the house is finished except for the tops and bottoms of the columns. I needed to make sure the columns were all the right size and in the right places before finishing them.

There are still decorative concrete benches and planters to put on the porch. Until I know exactly where they will be, I will next concentrate on finishing the foreground landscape.
