About a third of the way through the cut-and-fold lines now. I've printed out what I've done so far and plan to start assembling it today. What I have created are the main walls, interior reinforcers, and the weird long dormer. Still needs a roof, the foyer, chimneys, roof dormers, stairs, and the balcony (might try a big 3" x 2" deck if the proportions look all right).
Created the chimney, foyer and roof dormer pieces. Still need a foyer chimney, main roof, stairs and balcony/deck. Looks like the overall page count and build time/complexity will be similar to the Inventor's House -- a weekend project.

I really like the direction you are going with these projects. Unusual buildings that bring character to the table.
In my old model railroading days, the buildings I added to the layout had character. I didn't have a huge set-up, but everyone who saw it loved it. As you look around there was so much to see.
These new buildings really do that. Not to say that your older stuff doesn't have character, but I can think of a few that are more like the canvas of a painting, whereas others are the subjects of the painting.
I thought I was going to take a break from this model to work on other stuff, but I came right back to it. I've added three roof textures, and have begun adding the lower wall textures. There's a lot to do, but progress is being made.
Textures are finished and I'm sending this one out to my volunteers for final quality testing and assembled color models. I'll also try to convince NoRemorse to set up the GSDs.
While all that's going on, I can create the animated GIF showing the textures cycling through, and write up the product description. I can get that done in the next few hours, leaving me several days to work on other projects until the Townhouse photos and GSDs start coming back.
I'll probably work on the Archer bomber for Solid State War some more, and maybe get back to the 28mm-30mm Gallows set.
The easiest way would be 10-15% on each release but have them sent directly, guaranteed sales, but no monthly sub. fee. 3 Month minimum sub, automatically deducted from Paypal/ Credit card. Renew every three months, with automatic renewal.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
