Started with bay 'cos if couldn't build it then no house
Used a card template for core of window First decided design and drew a 1:12 frontage to fit it to. Then coated each side with wood strip, bending the bay end around a clear Fimo/clay rolling pin and a section of a magazine postal tube once it was dry. Held the curve of inner card with strips of paper on both sides and then faced with strips of scrap obeche wetted and curled in a yog pot

"Started with bay 'cos if couldn't build it then no house" - seems to make sense but who else would base an entire house on the windows?!

Sorry about that, but it made sense at the time, honestly. Probably they're the only reason I'm doing the house? Who knows ;)
