The first thing I noticed is that the piece chart was missing for this Chapter. Luckily, all the pieces were familiar as I had already made the porch ceilings before and the comfy chairs had the same pieces as well. So, I slapped together the ceiling, painted the remaining pieces that needed it and installed the ceiling (which I won’t walk thru again as I had done it so many times before - at least this is the last one!).
I also had to attached a few more decorative pieces and the wooden runners for the shōji windows. As usual, a tight fit. But I’ll just end up having to sand down the upper piece to make the shōji slide. At this point, I’m used to it.
