    Hardy House

    UPDATE: This house is available "free to good home". It is a bit of a wrench for me to give it away as it is unique and charmingly quirky, but I want to focus on my dream projects, which were put on hold when this fell into my lap. Please PM me -- local (Southern California) delivery available or you can collect it. My remodel of The Golden Lion Inn. The "story" is that the old inn has been remodeled into a family home -- it is ca.1950, and the family has many things inherited from previous generations. I've called it "Hardy House" after the shop on the builder's plate, Hardy's M
  6. Free to good home, Hardy House, formerly The Golden Lion Inn. Built in 1981 by “Budd” for Hardy Miniatures shop in Redlands, Calif. When the shop closed, the house languished in storage for some years, until it was adopted by a fellow miniaturist in my local NAME group, who gave it to me in 2017. She had made some modifications, as have I. Some pieces of trim are no longer attached, but I have most of them, and also some of the original contents (tavern bar, roasting pig over a fire, etc.! including the inn sign) which of course will be included. There are six rooms at the open back,

Unfortunately, the window part is not removable on this particular door -- and I've already painted it, hoping there would be a better solution than adding some curtains ... Jeanne

    They look wonderful! Well done you!
  11. I was so nervous about it that I put it off for weeks! I painted over some of it and did it again, so I would recommend to anyone who is new at it to have the base color paint on hand. You can also rub off some of the aging before it dries, if you know immediately that it isn't right. "Less is more" here, and the layering of aging colors really helps to give a good effect, so just tell yourself that you can add more if it needs it. Try it!
  12. That's a lovely shop front! Beautiful colors, too --
