Turns out — after a lot of experimentation and test builds and weathering practice and pondering and faffing about — as much as I am captivated by abandoned miniatures, I do not wish to actually build one. I felt a bit sad when I realized this, but also relieved. The pavilion remodel still has sea level rise as a core premise, but now it’s more of a retrofitted, off-the-grid, self-sufficient adaptation that’s been going on for some years. With scavenging and memorabilia. The old skiff, with its faded Sea House emblem, stays. Stormy is just passing through :)

I like it so far. It looks like a nice place for parties.
Thanks, Sheila! I suppose there will still be parties in a post-sea level rise world :)
Lovely bones, looking forward to the remainder…
Bones is a perfect word, I think, to describe rebuilding an old structure :) Thank you, Marilyn!
Looks like something you’d find in Malibu, some celeb’s backyard party area overlooking the beach. And the Star Wars character just solidifies the Hollywood link ;)
Hah, Bennie! Maybe a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
I do believe that this is an unscripted part of every miniature build, in that at some point, it takes on a mind of its own and begins calling the shots.
True words, Elizabeth! This pavilion steadily resisted abandonment. I’m listening!
Great photo! “Self-sufficient” conjures up a lot of ideas. I think a tiny bag of Cheetos is in order.
… As for self-sufficient, I was picturing a hydroponic greens-growing section in the side wing …
As for Cheetos, I could never, especially because of Randy Rainbow’s latest video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTosB6V_V24
Too funny! I wish Randy would do my makeup – he’s lovely.
