Tower House in Progress

The furnishings are finished. As I mentioned, I decided on the early 2oth century as the period for the interior, so I could include many different styles, reflecting the fact that the building has been lived in for hundreds of years.

Pieces in the late 15th Century style (when the tower would have been built) include the sideboard and small cabinet near the door on the second floor. There is a 17th century cabinet on the back wall of the third floor; the dining table on the second floor and the chairs in the kitchen would also be of that period. Furniture from the 1700's is scattered throughout the house. There is a Victorian style cabinet on the left wall of the third floor and a chair in the bedroom. The upholstered chair and table in the half timber addition would be early 20th century.

I have a tendency to imagine that artists live in my houses, so someone has been working on a waterolor painting in the addition. Some finished pieces are propped against the wall.
I have left a space in front of the fireplace on the second floor for a porcelain dog by Sylvia Mobley, which is due to arrive in March.

Now for the landscaping!
