  1. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    So I took Emily's (Fov) advice and tried out a mock-up of a different front stair configuration than I had originally intended. I added a little extension to the front of the porch to allow the first flight to descend at a right angle to the house (I will need to figure out some kind of railing for this.. I don't want my little people swan diving to the driveway when coming home from a night on the town ). The landing at the bottom of the first flight would be the same level as the front garden and their would be a retaining wall under it as indicated (this house is on an im

    Garage

    From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    A close up of the garage. I have some work to do on the garage door and I may make a laundry area in the back under the window.
  3. From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    I came across a cool tutorial on how to mix Fimo to make a more realistic marble. The marble in the tutorial was opaque but I kind of wanted something that was a bit more translucent. Almost like alabaster. The process of doing this is a bit too much to explain here but I think they came out really cool. The mix on the right is the one I'm going to end up using. It's still translucent but more white. The one on the left is really cool but a bit too yellow for the kitchen.

    Gave the brick flooring a wash of white paint to tone down the red and give it a bit of an aged appearance. Then grouted. Used spackle this time @Its_a_sm_world_after_all Jodi. Soooo much better.. but it's very white... should I give all of this a black wash to grimy it up a bit? Or leave it all white and pretty?
  5. A miniature lady I know built me this custom house. Well, it's the RGT Queen Anne and the Newport bashed together with a ton of custom alterations. Walls taken down, windows replaced with doors, balconies extending all around, etc. I know there are a few weird things that don't match (especially the Newport side of roof needing to be peaked or something), but I love it. It's so fun. Just picked it up yesterday, so there are no accessories yet and I only just started playing with furniture, but here are pics if anyone is curious. It's giant!!! I realize it's bigger than most people's taste.
  6. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Today I did a little maths and figured out the size of the cantilever off the porch for the redesigned front stairs. I've glued my three flights of stairs together and mocked them up here. I still have some tweaking to do, but I like how they are turning out. I think I will have the top flight as painted wood with railings to suit the porch railing (which I will be changing). The second and third flight of stairs will either be completely bricked in a brown tone brick or have bricked risers and and "concrete" slab treads. You can't really tell here but there is a decent window well un
  7. Hi All, I'm having trouble choosing a car for the San Franciscan's Garage.. I've been trolling around on ebay and other sites all morning.. wasting time searching. So I'm hoping you can help me choose. As you may or may not know the back story on the San Franciscan is that a young couple live there.. they inherited it from her spinster Aunty. So with that in mind, I've been looking at the kind of cars I think a spinster Aunty might have stashed away under a dust cover in the Garage. I feel a pull to this Morris Minor as my Dad's Secretary in the 1970's had this exact
  8. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Today I did a little maths and figured out the size of the cantilever needed off the porch for the redesigned front stairs. I glued together my three flights of stairs and mocked them up here. I moved the second flight of stairs back in line with the top flight as suggested by @Debsrand56. You may also notice that I've managed to tone down the pink stonework... That is if you aren't distracted by the hellacious bloodbath on my foam! (Well, not really, but as you can see I've also been working on a tree and the colour of my air dry clay is.. erm.. unfortunate... Not to worry crime sce

    Took a good stab at laying the stone for the San Franciscan's basement yesterday. I'm using some Andi Mini stone I had in my stash.. do I love it for this project?... mmm.. jury is out.. but the price was right and it saved a lot of time on making egg carton stones.. I'm not in love with the colour of these stones, they are a bit pink for my liking... I'm wondering if I can do a paint wash over them to tone them down? Thoughts? This is the left side or "low" side. That's one big stone wall.

  11. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Working on the Landscaping Board today... I know it seems like a job for the end but I need to at least lay out the plan and mock it up because the hillside will determine where "stone"goes on the outside of the basement. Additionally the new front stairs are an integral part of the landscaped hill and therefore careful height planning is needed to incorporate the stairs later. I've decided on three flights with two turns, thanks to the greenleafers who weighed in last post and suggested three. As you can see it's a fairly rough mock-up but you get the idea. I've built t
  12. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Working on the Landscaping Board today... Still very much in mock up mode... As you can see I've just used random pieces of foam to simulate the lower landing. I may even put another set of three stairs on the other side of this landing facing back towards the apartment door. That way the little occupants have a choice of stairs whether going to the garage or the front gate. The foam will all be covered in water putty or some such product (again thanks to the Greenleafers who made suggestions.) to simulate a painted cement retaining wall. It'll probably have some cracks in it
  13. How difficult do you think it would be to bash together an Orchid and The Arthur? They are for sale, still in the box. They look very similar as far roof lines etc? I haven't even started the Laurel yet, and I'm already dreaming of another house. I have been stalking the listing on Craig's list for weeks. Am I going off the rails????
  14. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    This is the basement apartment main room. Originally I was going to have the kitchenette at the front beside the front door and under the window, but it didn't leave me enough room for a sofa bed or murphy bed up by the bathroom. So I've had to switch it around. The kitchenette will now be a galley style at the rear near the bathroom and the living/sleeping area will be up front. I will most likely build some kind of modular corner sofa bed arrangement as I don't know where exactly to put a murphy bed. In the kitchen area, there will be a small sink, counter top stove a small under co

    This is the basement bathroom floor plan. It's a small room so has a pretty basic design There will be walk in shower in the back. Basin with Cabinet mirror & Toilet. I may make a little custom shelf unit for between the basin and the loo. The door will change to a Classics Narrow door (on order) to free up some wall space for accessories such as towel racks etc. Furniture is just place holding, I still need to make some choices for this room.
  16. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    In the living area there will be a modular corner sofa bed arrangement of some sort (to be built). On the wall between the kitchenette and living area will be a tall thin storage cupboard. A small round coffee table and a storage unit on the diagonal wall for a TV and books, will round out the furniture for this room.
  17. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Top view of the entire floor plan for the San Franciscan basement. I finally got all my window and door holes cut. I will need to make some adjustments to the garage door opening as it's a bit large. Once the exterior stone goes on it should solve some of the issues.

    Faux stone tiles

    From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    One night I got creative and decided to try my hand at making some faux stone. I can't remember where I saw the idea for this but it was on the internet. I had some art paper laying around the house so I cut a base piece and then glued shredded up pieces of art paper to the base piece and then cut it up into rectangular tiles. I mixed them up so the lines didn't match up and then lined them up. It's a really simple project and i'm happy with how my test turned out so I plan on using it throughout the first floor of the house.

    Chandelier lit up

    From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    Here is the chandelier lit up. I really like how it looks lit up. I might make a small one for the upstairs that looks like my own small hanging lamp that I got in Turkey. I think I could do that pretty easily with some bead caps and one of the miniature glass jars I got last night when I got the miniature mason jars for the dining room.

    Custom Chandelier

    From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    Farmhouse chic has a pretty specific style of lighting that usually combines simple lights with unusual fixtures. I just haven't found anything I like online because the vast majority of it is Victorian fixtures and doesn't work with what I'm trying to do. I have pretty eclectic decor in my own home thanks to many years of international travel so I like to look for interesting designs. I found a couple really cool looking sliding bracelet clasps that reminded me of the metal lanterns I've seen in souks around North Africa and the Middle East. I put them together with super glue and a lame atte

    New Primrose Side

    From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    When I put the Orchid and Primrose together I realized that I needed to increase the roof line to match so I cut a new side piece and a new roof piece. I used one of the shutters from the front of the Primrose to lay out two narrow windows on either side of a chimney that I'll add on. The chimney will be there on the outside but on the inside it will just be a remnant as I plan on having a modern kitchen.
  22. From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    I had hoped to keep the bay window but it just wouldn't fit anywhere else so I decided to keep the octagonal window from the main gable section. I had initially lined it up at the same height as all the other windows but then realized it just didn't look right so I fixed it by elongating it. I'll just cut a few extra trim pieces to fix that. My plan for this is to make a stained glass window with some kind of cool design. Maybe a tree or even a peacock because I love peacocks.
  23. From the album: SewMini's Casa del Paó d'Or

    The inside of the house will be pretty basic in terms of layout. I cut the bay window opening on the Orchid to go to the floor to make a large opening between the two rooms on the lower level. I also cut a narrow doorway between the two rooms on the upper level. The layout will be: Lower Level Primrose: Kitchen Lower Level Orchid: Dining Room/Living Room Upper Level Primrose: Bathroom Upper Level Orchid: Bedroom

    Basement progress

    From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Making progress on the basement. I've cut the hole for the garage door which is in dryfit and has a coat of primer. I don't know where to put the basement door. I've chosen this french door style because there most likely won't be a window on the front wall and I would like to have the door do double duty for some light. I can't put the door directly under the other doors as the garage door took up more room than expected and means it's impossible to line the bottom door up with the others due to the internal struts/runners that make the garage door work. The choices are: 1.
  25. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    I've added basement window to the "room" side of the basement to give a little additional light. The chimney will go between these windows.
