  1. Amazing house Holly, and also amazing how you built it and finished it all off. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Cardboard. Yes I know that so will try it out. Thanks again.
  3. Thanks KathieB for the info. The trouble is I have unfortunately already glued the whole house together and yes, it is really terribly hard to get to places like the back walls and the back of the side walls and I do want to paint the template so will just go ahead and try it out and see how it goes. Learning so much.
  4. If it is as good as the rest it will be magnificent !
  5. Thanks Terry, but what is 'cardstock' please? How would it go with all the paint on it and then the thin boards stuck to that for the panelling and dado boards? Would cardboard hold all that stuff?
  6. Thanks so much for answering KathieB, but how does the thin cardboard go when painted and when it has the timber pieces glued to it when doing panelling above and below the dado board? How would it hold all this, especially the paint?
  7. I will remember this for my kitchen shelves. Where did you get the labels finally?

    Another Attic View

    Oh, that was what the manhole was for. Very clever.

    This is beautiful. I love the parquetry and the flow through of the rooms. Well done.
  17. It is a lovely big room too and a good idea to combine the two rooms. I love the wallpaper also. Well done.
  18. Yes I agree. It looks beautiful for the maids room, and great workmanship too with the beds.
  19. Yes I think that is a great idea for a maids room. Look forward to seeing it.
  20. Can I see the finished house? Would love to see it thanks.
  21. The clapboard and the dormers look great, also the work on the porch floor too. Going well.
  22. I think you are doing wonders with it, The fireplace is great and the stairs look very professional and work well. I like it very much.
  23. Hi Clove, yes it is lovely house. When I get further on with it I will find out how to post the pictures of my work for you to see but will be a while, as I am very much a learner at this stage and learning as I go but find all these comments so very helpful. It is marvellous really. I am decorating it in the Georgian era which was very elaborate with lots of moulding on the walls and ceilings and with fancy plaster work on ceilings, over doors and fireplaces and on walls, so very decorative and I hope I can do it justice.
  24. Zelda, have you already built Grosvenor Hall? I am asking this as you are working on the basement. Have you done the whole house too?
  25. Hi Terry, Just wanting some more information about templates as have never heard of them up to now as a real novice. What is cardstock, and wold it be strong enough to hold a lot of decorations? I am wanting to apply things like timber moulds and in some areas wallpaper inside these timber also, and things like that. Would thin timber be better to use? I need to learn a lot more about templates as I can see the big benefit of using them for all the walls and even the ceiling which would have to hold plaster casts and heavy things like that. Any information on templates would be very helpful es
