I really wish this gate was available when I designed the front on the townhouse. I felt the passageway needed something to dress it up. I have been thinking about using the gate from miniatures.com site for a while and I decided to take a chance. The gate needed some more height to retro fit it into the opening. The gate is enclosed in plywood, which lead me to use the laser cut wood frame I had originally intended for the ceiling of the townhouse. I bought it at Michaels. I began by rounding the corners of the gate's plywood with my scroll saw, then I used a utility knife to fit the frame to the gate. I spray painted the new gate with a base of flat black. I still need to do some aging and permanently install it after I install the floor of the passageway.

I recently discovered that I had not taken a full front view with the attached 4th floor and roof front, so I decided to make a post. This was a difficult shot because I had to take it sitting down, I've been having issues with my right foot since the summer, (Morton's Neuroma) which makes it painful for standing or walking. I needed to turn the whole table to back up far enough to get the front and the house and court yard are very heavy together. I have to finish my ferns, repair my rear balcony, glue handles I ordered for the french doors when they come in and glass inserts. The chimneys have been painted the same as the house but are unattached until I decide which roof treatment I am going with. I have narrowed it down to two.
