First, thank you everyone for all your nice comments!!! I really appreciate it, more than you know.
Earlier I posted some highlights from the brick work; now I've added some moss, and the brick and stone portion of the facade is done! The next thrilling step is to paint the exterior door and window. I'm quite excited to see them in place! I've put a coat of the trim paint on the over-door/over-window half round thingies, and have high hopes too for this trim color. It's historically accurate, and was at the time quite popular, but some historically accurate colors are hideous so I wasn't entirely confident that my choices would match my (high) expectations.
For moss, I used a combination of fine turf (Woodland Scenics) and the two greens in the PanPastel "scenery" tray. I actually bought it for the greens, because they were such wonderful moss colors. There's also a terrific lichen color, which I haven't had a chance to use yet.

Sorry for the gratuitous pictures. But I can never be sure which ones to use! And I guess I am a little pleased with myself...
