  1. New Mansard roof and two attic rooms added to 2004 Oddjob Lane! I removed the odd original roof and replaced it—the house needed a better “look” and needed extra space. See the details on my blog at http://irismarchcreations.blogspot.com I hope you enjoy the upgrade! B)
  2. Unless this house is MDF, I would not use those "barrel hinges". They are necessary for MDF (that's what I use for MDF), but in my opinion, ungainly. I wallpaper under them.They are rather large and bulky to wallpaper over the barrels. Also, the glue has on some occassions affected the hinges and they rust. This is my experience with MDF and the barrel hinges. I would use three solid brass hinges for each door. I have used piano hinges but had to do some searching to find the size for 3/8 ". Whether this house was originally a front-opening or not, does not affect the type of hinge you us

    Ground floor

    You could simply put extra strip wood under door frame and just glue it on the back wall without having to thicken the wall (I am not a big fan of foamcore except for mock-ups). --Or you could cut an opening for the door, put it in place and seal it closed on the back of the house. That way, if you ever wanted to put a narrow addition in back and open the door to give a peek into basically a room that nearly doesn't exist. I have seen this done and can be very effective.
  9. I Love thoses Palladian arches!
  10. I can't believe how diligent I have been. Still working away at La Malcontenta-- (RGT Thornhill). I may even get this house finished in my lifetime! I have been working on the interior of La Malcontenta (RGT Thornhill). I have a new post detailing the living room and foyer.

I will be adding more, I hope! B)
