Disassembling and Rebuilding a Triang Stockbroker

SEMI FINISHED [SEMI HALF] STOCKBROKER

Well the house is comming together, the roof only needed a little repair, and painting.

The one job I hate doing is painting the base, I don’t no why, but alway find it difficult to get a good finish. I used gloss paint, and then finished with a matt varnish, which gives it a nice sheen.

The garage door is green, but my camera tends to make dark green blue? I like the natural wood beams.

A view of the porch, I need a sundial to go on the chimney breast.

So this is it the house so far, just the windows to restore, and new shutters to fit.

This restoration has been a real dilema for me, it goes against what I have tried to achieve with my other houses. I had no room for another full size Stockbroker, so I had a choice, break it up for spares, or build something I had room for. I think I made the right choice.

      I keep getting that feeling, why did I start this. Then I think one day it will be a dolls house again. As for the windows 15 in all, but at least they are complete if a little rusty.
