I constructed my house on my kiln shelf. That way I will know that it will fit! It will be heavy to lift into the kiln, but with some help it should go fine.
The separate pieces behind the windows worked out well. They stabilize the edges of the window cut-outs, but also add nice detail.
The round bay was tricky. On any square corners, I used mitred edges on both pieces and that eliminates the need for figuring for the thickness of the clay - as opposed to the thickness of the cardboard pattern, which is thin. But after a bit of tinkering and fudging it worked out OK.
The most fun was the owl on the roof of the round bay - naturally!
