I’m back again with a even bigger and better built 6 room condo that i call the Smokey Mountain Chalet. This house measures 24”l x 15” w x 20” tall.It is fully functioning with tool free cleaning, simply pull 4 pins and lift the house off the base. The roof is old recycled bard metal paint in a hammered copper tone. The whole house is constructed of douglas furr , and all logs are 3/4×3/4 and hand cut. Hope everyone likes it and please comment if you like.

Thanks I built this house in just over 6 hrs. The roof is recycled barn roofing with coppertone paint.

I like it. More complicated than most, simpler than the big condos. Just right.

I will have to make one.
