All of the details are from Tichy with the exception of the basement windows, they are Grandt Line.
I used Midwest Products #4445 1/16" Board & Batten for all of the walls.
The second floor support logs are my wife's cooking skewers. The walls and logs are stained with my Vinegar/Steel Wool mix to give the house a mountain cabin look.
The "Balcony's" or second floor porches are Midwest Products #4437 1/16" thick flooring with 1/16" spacing . I used the 1/16" thick flooring for the suspended porches to prevent warping.
The roof is made from lined card stock included in a Campbell #800 Shingles kit, I will glue the Campbell shingles on the card stock later.
I really like the Tichy Details, the "Balcony" and porch railing is #8093.
The first floor porch flooring is Midwest Products # 4434 1/32" thick with 1/16" spacing glued to the main 3/32" floor to preserve HO scale thickness.
Here I have shingled the roof and the fire place chimney is temporarily in place to fit the hole through the roof.
At this point I have installed all of the window curtains and the interior lighting, the roof is now glued in place.
The rest of the pictures are of the finished house. As you can see I have applied JTT Styrene Pattern Sheeting #97442 Field Stone to the basement foundation, fire place and chimney with a very thin mix of flat black Floquil to accent the stones. Notice the sign hanging from the second floor porch support logs.
The stair railing is also from Tichy #8213. As with all of my structures I have added a lot of figures to add to the ambiance.
This is the closeup of the sign mentioned above, this Swiss Chalet Mountain Home was created as a part of the Perry Family retirement life. And the sign says it all.
I added a two story two car garage to the Chalet. The second floor is the train room.
