Pecky cypress boards from Florida Cypress in Jacksonville, Fl.
Two cypress knees from a mill in Waldo, Fl.
Roof joists from bamboo.
What a tedious chore, dissecting a pine cone.
Semi-circle drawn with compass, wall frame from carboard, window frame to support stones until dry.

Danish oil brings out the grain of oak.
I realized that you can see into this part so I had to hang wall paper.
Textured paper for the inside wall.
Ceiling joists of bamboo.
Raffia hot glued, then felt applied.
Mahogany seed pod segments applied for a thick-textured roof.
Pine cone bottoms for the top, capped with an acorn.
Solid oak front door. Pine slabs as pavers.
Side window framed with cypress branches.
The front door needed something else so I made some leaves out of polyclay.
