Hey Jeff:

It's looking good. Will be following along.

Thanks, Karl.  The windows were "glassed" with Gallery Glass.  I prefer to use acetate, but the arches would be impossible to cut.  Shades were added (as well as a wood "blank" to replace a broken front window).  Trim for the doors added as well. Next up is adding the doors, which I'll do with five minute epoxy.  I think on the large ones the Aleen's Tacky glue may not hold them.

That color combo is excellent, Jeff.  The finish on the stucco looks great and I love to see the little extra details like the wood panel covering the broken window.

Very nice Jeff. The color reminds me of old stucco buildings you see in the southwest.
