I'm doing a tone of tiling! This will eventually be the bathroom floor. I have cut a real life vinyl tile to represent 6" x 6" tiles. Grouting follows!
Laying the tiles has been a long, slow process as I am bevelling them as I go! I think I'm having fun now!!

Right side of attic will be the housekeepers bedroom area.
The left side shown below will be her living quarters.

The left side of the attic with flooring in and wallpapering done.
Wainscott panelling still to be done.

The bare attic!

The windows - kit-bashed and painted. A piece of copper will be added to the top when they are finally put in place.
These sash windows will be used on 2 sides of the house - 5 each side.
The front windows are yet to be made as I want casements there - they will be scratch built.

Internal Doors

The internal doors have been teaked ready to go in.

Some close-ups of the peeling paint!!

The "peeling" paint was achieved by applying rubber cement on to the first coat of paint at random intervals. The second coat of paint is applied over the whole surface, including the cement and once dry, the cement is then rubbed off with an eraser until the desired effect is achieved.
