    I paint, draw, and work way too much. I usually have three massive projects on the go at any one time, as such I occasionally drop off the face of the earth.

    I will be blogging my progress, feel free to check in on me from time to time :)

    When I had access to a workshop I passed the time building primitive dollhouses, just getting started with the kits as I'm without saws now. As such i'll list my experience at two houses complete.

    First kit project - The Chantilly half scale, a christmas present for my mother.

    New Glencroft

    I'm finally getting back into the builds after the fire took out my old ones. It was so disheartening to have to start over from the beginning - but i can fix the things that I didn't love in the first build I suppose!

    yeah i want it to brown / age, so that's what i'm hoping for
  3. I have a book that outlines the construction of arched / paladin windows, I will take pics when I get home for you.
  4. I've been out of this for too long.. i forgot the golden rule that is "dry fit", my progress has been hindered a few times now by having to re do a few things lol
  5. So its official, i'll never finish the glencroft or the others. Had a bit of a house fire in an unbelievable stroke of luck (?) I had a lily kit in the trunk of the car, so i guess that's what i'm doing while my house is rebuilt. I've gone through the blogs, it looks like this kit has a few tricks to it - can anyone remember some things they'd wish they had done differently in a build?

    Yet another wash

    I Was sad about it to, literally pouted for years trying to decide how to fix that outside fixture. I like it now tho, I may clay over the stones on the chimney as well, still debating that one, but it seems like it would be a good idea at this point.

    Glencroft

    I've finally decided to finish this thing, or work on it again. after some of the fixtures were eaten by the cat I was pretty frustrated with the whole hobby. I have the big job pretty much done, removing the old paper clay and renovating the front of the house. Going to go with bricking this time, i think the house needs a bit of colour.

    new bricking

    yeah i'll do the colour washes and get them to a reddish brown colour like i did on the Newberg
  9. Amazing job on this house, it makes me want one desperately lol

    new bricking

    Thanks all, the shingles are paper clay w/ minwax stain.. i think red oak and Pecan. it's held up pretty well
  11. Thanks guys, appreciated definitely, takes some of the sting out of having to re-do it lol

    This is much easier when you can do it all in one sheet, pottery skills came in handy finally !

    yes the brick is a big improvement, i got carried away with this house and was planning a red tile roof, but then forgot and textured the shingles lol. The red brick should bring back some of the look i was going for
  14. I don't know why i keep forgetting about sketchup - i'll start drafting it up tonight lol
