  1. Ouch! I would say another case of a non-miniaturist who thinks they have a gold mine.
  2. Been there, and given away some houses. I recently got a almost free Grandville for cheap, assembled. Knowing how rare, I took it. Luckily, I have a walk up attic, so there it sits. One day I will get to it, probably rebuild it so I know it will stay together. Finds like that are hard to pass up. I have cleaned out my stash of other kits, but, hmmm, go figure, it still grows. I just recently acquired a very rare Opening Scenes Wuthering Heights kit. It us the house from the 1930s movie. It's an addiction, go with it!
  3. Thank you so much for the compliments! It was so much fun to build and create the cottage. The bathroom was an easy add to the kit. I cut the door on the side for the room access. The room itself is made of Foam Core Board, then covered in scribed sheets on the inside and board and batten on the outside. You would be able to extend the floor across for more room. I had given this some thought for the bathroom, but I wanted to keep the open living area. If you are hesitant to use the 1/8" plywood for the additions, you could use FC Board or Gator board for the floor. I would then use trim to cover the difference in the floor thickness. By doing this, you could easily move the staircase and even the wall between the downstairs rooms. Let your imagination go wild!

  9. A few more of "What are they thinking?" Maybe it is me, but I think people need to research things before listing them for sale. Also, sentimental attachments ($$) need to go if you are selling it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-GREENLEAF-THE-WASHINGTON-DOLLHOUSE-KIT-NEW-IN-BOX-/265317515314?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276 https://www.ebay.com/itm/373723901068?epid=2255327537&hash=item5703ae2c8c:g:84IAAOSwDHZhQ3Ou https://www.ebay.com/itm/173843375383?hash=item2879df6517:g:Ej4AAOSwNIpckcRY https://www.ebay.com/itm/265092820137?hash=item3db8c36ca9:g:~EEAAOSw-iFgU1kQ
  10. We were very lucky. No wind damage at all. Our 150 yr old house strong. Not a creak or a groan the whole time. And let me tell you it was a Nasty, Nasty Storm. The generator is running the refrigerator and freezer, fans, and occasional TV. I am working from home, so it is keeping my laptop powered up. I just finished up my work for the day (not much to do as normal with half our facilities closed). We have gas cooktop and water and sewerage service, so we can cook and take showers, etc. I will be catching up on my reading and hopefully working on the First Lady!
  11. Just a quick note that we made it through the storm. No damage to the house. But our 80+ yr old pecan tree took a beating. Several limbs in the street and neighbors driveway. Now dealing with no electricity and no idea when it will be restored. Luckily we have a generator and access to gas to keep it running. But it doesn't power the AC. So you all know with our humidity . . . Been spending time working from home on my work laptop (glad I bought it home). And spending time on the front porch, where it is so much cooler than inside the house. Looks like I will be catching up on reading and work on the First Lady. It could have been much worse. So very thankful. All my family and friends came out unscathed as well. Matt

  15. Thank you all for these words and those of you who reacted to the post. I know it was the best for her, as I could never let her live in pain. But a little bit of me is missing.
