Well after dismantling it it has remained in a bag waiting for me to get around to it's restoration, witch I now have.
After some serious filling and sanding I blasted over the wood with pva glue mixed with water as a sealant then under coated the whole front in gray. I have some stone bricks to set over the top and grout to set them in.
The window frames and door frame I painted green with a gentle mottle to add a little depth.
The insides of the windows I painted dark gray. I will be adding glass to the windows at a later date.
I have been looking around for some dried moss to add between the bricks but the spring green I want is sold out on ebay and i'm not sure where else to look!
Using wire, ivy leafs and flower tape I created an ivy to grow around the doorway. So much to do but at least this is the start of the house I named Witchcraft Manor.
