Made these for my shop class. The project called for the corner of a one story house. I made the two-story house fisrt because I found myself ahead of the pack. Then i made the one-story one for my teacher, who still uses it to show the other students how to make them right :D. We also ended up making straight stairs and a full house, which I dont have pictures of :(.

the bases are 12” x 12”, all hot glued, used the thickness planer, table saw and band saw to cut the pieces.

thanks for looking

I used to be a Merit Badge Counselor (US BSA) for the Model Building Merit Badge. Stuff like this was one example of the work. Nicely done! You did your homework plus a little; that seems to be rare these days, in my experience.

Thanks AtomJack, I love giving that little extra on projects. The best part of it is the reaction i get from the teachers when they give me the grade :)
