Some assembly required

The walls are done, the corners are done, and now it’s time to bring it all together. As per the instructions, this is only a partial assembly. In order to fully paint it, I’ll be assembling the tower into 2 halves. The first half is easier, as it’s the half that will be attached to the base and ceiling. Attaching it to the base was easy. Attaching the ceiling took some ingenuity. I eventually built a lego tower to help support it while the glue dried.

The other half is freestanding. I used my lego corner to provide the 90 degree angle, and a box of tissues to keep it upright.

While that was drying I built an additional floor section. I just can’t seem to leave things alone... This section was for under where the bell would be. I don’t actually have a bell to install, nor am I putting any minis in the tower, but if I was, they would have somewhere to stand! Here you can see the now slightly shorter lego support structure.
