The Lighthouse

I built this lighthouse using a Real Good Toys kit. However, I've never seen a lighthouse with clapboard siding, so I used spackle to give it a cement look. The base is made from two pieces of thick styrofoam glued together and then sculpted. I then covered it with spackle and painted it to look like rock.

Note the stairs carved from the rock!

I decided to make my lighthouse an artist's weekend retreat (something I wish I had!)
The first floor is living room and kitchen,
the middle is a bedroom
and the top floor is the studio.
