This contemporary house was created based on a design by an actual 4 bedroom home design by Max Height Design Studio. Designer: Sudheesh Ellath, Vatakara, Kozhikode, Kerala. The house was created from an RGT Firehouse kit which has been greatly modified.
I built this house in 1999. I added a section on one side, replaced the doors, and left off the second floor balcony roof. Sadly, I don't have many pictures. It was given to a friend for her granddaughters.
I wanted to have dolls of all ages. We are in a world of babyboomers so the aging process has many levels. I wanted to have older dolls that depict the people in the 45 to 70 group of TODAY. I have found some older looking action figures as well. So my mini world will have infants to this older group.
Re-build of partially constructed Pierce. First dollhouse since 1982! Dollhouse partially assembled with glue gun and wood putty. Porch floor was scored for floor board look and painted grey. Musty, dusty house that had been stored in a basement. At least it is dry!
My parents gave me this house over 30 years ago. I completed the shell with the help of my dad, but life, marriage, kids, and many, many moves put the house on the back burner. But, my husband always managed to keep it safe during the moves. Now I've decided to start over. I've removed all the siding, brick foundation and I'm starting over with the vision of an old run down French Chateau purchased by a young couple as a fixer-upper. She is an interior designer he is a Chef. They've completed the inside but the outside still needs to be done. I had to cut extra windows as this is a front opening house and there were no doors or windows on the side or back. I added 4 windows to the side and I've cut a huge opening in the back for an addition in the kitchen. I have a vision and plan... now to see if I can make it happen.
Museum Project. I'd thought of turning this into an English style city house but decided I really like it as a museum. Last two pics are what I'd thought of doing to it. Because, you know, I tooootally have the talent to pull that off. BWAHAHA! *rolls eyes at myself* Maybe create an exterior something like that (sure, Kells, you do that!), but other than some touch-up, I'll probably leave the interior pretty much as is. Just need more stuff to fill it!
The Dura-Craft FarmHouse 505. I found and purchased this from GJ Junkers in Neihart, MT. The gentleman I purchased the home from had started the house, but quit after beginning the shingles.
I gutted the house and replaced some pieces which were used in the wrong places. Moved and re-designed the stairs so I could have a "larger kitchen".
Finished and am on to other things
I am drowning in so many projects that I forgot a friend gave this to me! I remembered it recently when talking about those big Houseworks windows and doors. You know, like, "Wait a second, I think I have a house with those windows...." LOL
Does this thing ever need work. The second floor window in the middle is not actually there (yet). I photoshopped it in. That big expanse of nothingness needed SOMETHING! Luckily I have some of those double windows. The flooring is reeaallly bad. At least the electrical works!
I won't be getting to this for a long time, if ever. Way down on my list. It will be a big white house eventually. Pink and green is pretty enough, just not my style.
