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.
Greetings and hello again.
Some of you may remember I started a few projects for my back yard.
I've finished a couple simple little projects and I'm always adding a few more when time and energy allows.
This thread will show you the progress so far.
Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy the journey's on my tiny back yard world I'm slowly creating for radio controlled trucks.
Scale is 1/10th.
Everything will mostly be scratch built.
Here I go into the world of half scale. Have to admit I’m a little nervous about this next adventure. I really wasn’t looking to go down in size but it’s impossible to find a house kit at the moment. My main goal for this build is to try to create as much of my own detail as possible.
No. 1 Tennyson Place is finished! This 1:24 house is a one-of-a-kind bash based on a Greenleaf Tennyson kit that I started several years ago. Then life happened, and it was wrapped in plastic and put on a shelf.
I was finally motivated and have the time to finish the project. My vision was to turn it into a San Francisco row house with an eclectic vibe. The wallpapers are scrapbook paper designs inspired by William Morris. The house is full of color and I thought it might make an interesting piano bar, or maybe a home with a bohemian flair.
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!
Rehab of 1970's Washington by Greenleaf. In progress and a lot of fun! Mo will live in the house and his neighbor, Joe, is helping him do the work, as well as letting him crash at his place while it gets done. They will do the reverse when Joe fixes his house up!
