Storybook Cottage Remodel



Figuring out where to put the stairs lead to a new stairwell, extending the base, bumping out walls, adding dormers, lowering the attic floor and installing interior dividing walls.

You can follow along with he build on my blog: :wave:

Thanks @abloom (Andrea)! 

Does project creep mean kit bash? :sad?:

If you just innocently wanted to add or adjust a stairway, but then that caused you to need a new stairwell, which required kit bashing to extend the base and bump out walls, which then necessitated more bashing like adding dormers, lowering floors, and adding dividing walls -- that's project creep. It happens every time I do something to my RL house, like replace a leaking shower faucet, thereby ruining the surrounding tiles that are no longer available, so requiring all-new tile that doesn't fit the old shower doors or match the dated bathroom floor, that then has to be replaced so I might as well do all the upstairs floors ... yeah, that's project creep. At least miniature kit bashing doesn't usually require a second mortgage :o

Thanks Andrea! I am excited now to be able to make it a real livable home for the little resident!

OMG I love it! I can totally relate to that! After we did major remodeling on our last house in 2006 (only wanted to open one wall and ended up with all new pipes and a whole new kitchen), we decided to have the next one built so we could stop renovating. Let's just say it was a great plan, but I can never leave well enough alone! Project Creep is a perfect phrase - Thanks for defining it for me! :cheezy:

Yeah, I've always thought if I could just build a new house from scratch, it would be perfect and no further renovations would be needed ... yeah, no. I think a lot of us miniature house people are really just house people. We'll never stop revising, because we love it and we can always improve :]
