My tiny house for the Anything Goes Tiny House Swap arrived at its destination, so now I can share.





The design was inspired by this real beach hut in Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk in the UK. Currently for sale for 60,000.

The base of the hut is 30x40mm. Which is about 1/72 scale. It is to be a dollhouse for a Blythe doll. It's made from balsa wood. The wood I have is all 3mm thick, so I had to split some of it to make the finer details.

My painting needs some work, but I covered up the worst flaws with some weathering. I did fix up that verandah post after I took the photo.

The door opens. In fact, it doesn't stay shut without a blu-tac doorstop.

And that's real beach sand it's sitting on. Though transported to my backyard. Smiley

OMG, you did a fabulous job translating from full-size inspiration to wee little house -- and the construction is just beautiful.  I LOVE this little house!
