conservatory or boathouse?

First coat of green/gray sanded, then more shading done on the front panels...

I put it back into dry fit at this point to show my daughter when she stopped by last Thursday.  She said it looks like a boathouse.

Hmmm....

Not a boathouse, but maybe a small boat repair shop....or rather, the office of one, with the exterior wall of the shop behind it, and a boat or two, outside, to the left.

I could cut the conservatory kit down a bit, removing one set of windows to make it shorter, which would make it fit on the top of my bookcase instead of hanging off the front an inch.

I'll have to fix the doors.  They only open inward, which I didn't like in the conservatory but decided to live with.  It's a simple fix, I just have to the remove the header that stops them from swinging out.

While I spent the weekend thinking about it I assembled a dory boat kit.  I purchased it a few years ago for the Tropical Beach House, but didn't have room for it.  I'll show you pictures when I'm done, I've got to make the oars today.
