  1. I appreciate your pointers about the siding; that's about what I thought I would do with it. Somehow this house is telling me clapboard siding. I have read other people's posts about doing the build in 2 weeks, but somehow I have been slowed down by how to address the siding. It's funny how you get a feeling of a personality emerging as the build progresses.
  2. What kind of glue do you use? Do you put your door/windows in first? Also, how do you address the corners? I haven't put the exterior trim on yet, so it's not too late to change.
  3. I think I want to do clapboard siding on my Orchid and wondered if any of you have any good tips for adding this kind of siding? I've read to put it on cardboard first, finish and add it that way. Or, add it right to the exterior. Any help would be great! Sarah

    No, everything came in the kit The Primrose. It's a small little add on house that is really inexpensive. I think I paid about $15.00 on eBay. The PDF design is from a great gal at cinderellamoments.com. Her instructions were very clear and Caroline is always eager to help and very encouraging. I made allot of mistakes and my cuts were all wonky but I love it anyhow. The nice gals here warned me about not using hot glue to put my houses together because over time it won't hold and will fall apart. Caroline uses allot of hot glue for designs on the ceiling and such. But regular glue for the wal
  8. I can't believe this is your first build! Amazing! I'm doing my second build, also the Orchid. But viewing what you've been up to with yours has my head spinning! So many ideas! Thanks for sharing your progress. I am only to sanding and priming. It says in the instructions that you should prime and paint before putting it together. Does this sound right to you? I wanna jump into the good stuff so it's hard to wait.
  9. Thanks to all for your nice comments. It's so great to be around like-minded mini fans. I don't know any one where I live (besides my granddaughter)! Sarah
  10. I finally started my second build, the wonderful Orchid. This is a big deal because I made it a reward for cleaning and rearranging my workshop! All the sweeter. First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you, to Dean for the awesome pdf. I bought my kit from eBay and it didn't have any schematics. What a lifesaver! Your work is much appreciated. My question is about the windows. The are double hung, but do the windows actually work or are they glued in place? The directions and photo show putting them on the walls but don't say anything about gluing. Thanks, Sarah

    I made this Primrose Cottage from a PDF from Cinderella Moments called A Shabby Chic Cottage, which you can purchase on Etsy. I gave it to the Cookeville Pregnancy Clinic to auction off as a fundraiser. I really had fun making it but it was a challenge. I didn't even know what bashing was! ;)
