Truth be told as I recall, I forgot to add glazing until I had glued it together. When I realized my error, I decided I couldn’t tell the difference anyway.
I think I would break the stairs handling the building to paint, but you are right the glue would probably hold better if not painted first.
Your drawing of the Temperance House Hotel look great! The Bird in Hand house looks like something from Williamsburg. It was built over 100 years before the first cabin in Butler County!
