Scale Model - The Villein's Byre House - Part 10

I am still working on those walls. I have a list of things I need to do around MY house, so it may take me a day or two. 

Cutting the sheets for the walls went fast. I have 10 of them all stacked up and ready to go. 

I ended up with 3 scrap pieces which I will probably use for the doors. 

Since the walls are essentially done, I started on the roof. I will be using some cord to make the thatched roof. 
This part is actually fun. I took a piece of card stock and used it to measure out how long each cord needs to be. Then I simply wrapped the cord around the card. When I get the chance, I will use a pair of scissors to cut the bottom. 

I have a couple of options. The easiest is to simply drape the cord over the roof. It's fast and nice looking, but what if I drop it? I could run a bead of glue down the beams then place it. There is no guarantee it will hold every piece, but should grab enough of them. 

I'll be back tomorrow.
