Why a Church in Miniature?

Why a Church in Miniature...?

Maybe it's because the church represents all the big milestones in my life.
My local parish church, where I grew up is fondly remembered and holds many happy memories of happy times in childhood spent at Sunday School.
It was here I became confirmed and where I went on to learn the guitar and to make many good friends.
It is where I was married and my three children were baptized.
And it is where I said my last 'goodbyes' to my dear, much loved parents....John and Margaret.
This tiny church is being made in memory of them.

I hope you will enjoy sharing my journey in the building of
St. Margaret's and St. John's

Customising the basic kit

I knew from the outset that although this kit was the size I wanted there would need be be some alterations to suit the idea that I had  in my head...the idea of a small country church.
With this kit there was the option of where to place the porch - it could be on the side or at the end...I have opted to put the porch at the end of the building leading to the smaller front door....

I've used fibreglass stone cladding for the walls
