At this point, what's left is to place the volumetric fire/smoke and start the final tests. Now, with the stove fire in scene, the light from the unexisting fire for all the lighting tests, gets a full sense.
The non-voulmetric noised light gives an extra smoke around the yard and looks like real smoke, saving some extra calculations instead of using more volumetric smoke.

I think that the main work for this scene was to pay attention to every small detail, a hard work in every stage:

- An irregular (natural) modeling.
- Fair amount of small objects/details and their variations.
- Careful texturing.
- A great amount of lighting/ambient tests based on the main sources.

The final image is shown below as a wireframe and full rendered.
