Although we didn't have an actual attic, I want to base this on the house we spent most of our married life in so the attic roombox will have siding.Here I've used Houseworks siding from my stash.
If you're a DIY kind of person, thanks to Joann Swanson, the queen of DIY miniatures, you can make your own siding from foamcore.
This siding is from foamcore.
Rule off the width of your siding on your sheet of foamcore. This one is done at increments of 1/2" (6" RL)
Carefully cut along each line...once through the top cardboard layer, then a second time through the foam layer.
Then take a tool ( I used the top of a pair of tweezers) and run it at a 45 degree angle along the cut edge.
I had decided not to do the stone chimney that Tina taught...and had thought that I would go with a brick (long story and thought process) then I talked with Pat today and decided not to include a chimney at all.
Sometimes you just have to go simple....
