It's already together, it's really just lacking the cosmetic stuff... cosmetic I can do.

Trust me, I understand. I have another 1" scale house waiting to be constructed.  It's been waiting for "I forget how many" years.

And I don't expect that to change any time soon.  Cheesy

I am close to finished with my little house.

Here is the outside as it existed last weekend (I did a bit more during the week, but don't have those pictures yet)



The inside is pretty much done.  Here are the four rooms starting at the top left.

  This is the "fish tank" room.  Probably the "kids room".

  This is the big room upstairs.  Master bedroom

  This is the bigger room downstairs (living room).  The bay window is on the left

The smaller room downstairs, with the staircase.  I guess this would be the kitchen.

The bay window roof is attached:



Who's there??



Next steps are the dark green trim along the roof edges.  Then the shingles, and the trim pieces on the top edges.

wwrich - You've made a lot of progress! Your house is looking fab!

My cardboard house needs some TLC. I have one room still to decorate. I need to finish it so I can start working on a 'proper' house. A kind stranger sent me the wooden house that she bought at Michaels and sent it all the way to me in South Africa, but I promised myself that I can only touch it once my cardboard house is done! I'm writing 2 exams towards the end of the month, so hopefully it'll be done by end June, so I can start on the wooden one!  Cheesy

oh, and knickertwist - the goblin pub is superb!!

microjivvy....where did you find those clamps?  I went to Home Depot today and the only ones they had were pretty heavy duty and cost a ton...

I'm afraid I won't be of much help as I found them in Mr. Jivvy's workroom.   Undecided

Worse yet, Mr. Jivvy has had them long enough, he doesn't have a clue where he bought them.

I am compelled to add that Mr. Jivvy pointed out (when I asked him where he purchased them), that they are not "pipe clamps," they are "bar clamps." ("pipe clamps" being clamps mounted on a pipe and "bar clamps" being clamps mounted on a, you guessed it, bar)  Roll Eyes

I was compelled to add that simply in case it should aid you in your search.

Hi there
I only just discovered this craftalong and wondered if I might be able to join in.
I have already partly built a house of this model:- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Woodcraft-Model-Kit-Wood-Fantasy-Villa-Doll-House-/280714869075?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415be8f953#ht_1601wt_876

I've already glued it though so I guess I've made decorating it hard for myself but I can just paint it - my boyfriend is a house painter and he's always horrified when people use wallpaper instead of hiring him so maybe I'll pretend I'm a house painter hehe.
I bought a second house which I have not started yet so while I plan on reading through the 131 pages on this thread, please feel free to PM me any tips you've discovered along the way for either of my houses Smiley

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
