Real Name

  1. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    I got back to work on the Beacon Hill, health issues forced me to take a break, then shortly after leaving the hospital I incapacitated my right hand and couldn't work on my crafts for a while... but I'm excited to get back to work and trying to finish up the kitchen area Working on the floor at the moment, I really like how the walls turned out.. tiles will follow the same color scheme: green, yellow, white, brown.
  2. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    I'm trying to pick up the pace on the construction of the Beacon Hill, it's been slow so far but I finally began gluing the house together and can now move on to the design choices for my interiors. I had to order new doors for the house since the ones from my kit were damaged (bad plywood surface), got pre-built ones to save costs (wood + hinges) but in turn I had to modify the openings for them to fit (if you ever plan on building this house: test the doors before you glue the walls in!). I've also modified the walls in this area: changed the position of the 'kitchen' door, drilled in new ta
  3. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Ceiling is up, needs retouching here and there but my arm must get some rest lol. Now I must cut templates for the bay windows and start working on the pannels. The fireplace will be on that wall (+ 2 wall lights surrounding it), I think I'll leave a wall socket on the opposite side of the room for a floor/table lamp.
  4. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    I have attached the modified walls and wallpapered the rest of the corridor. I'm still working on the staircase trims, the final color will be the dark mahogany you see in the picture, I am thinking about doing the same for the doors. The living room and dinning room will be combined together in the same room, with this mod the room is now big enough to acomodate a seating area + a 6 seat table and chairs. I've primed the walls of this room in a dark color because they will be covered by wood pannels, not wallpaper. I've decided to try spackle, first time working with this ma
  5. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Preparing the kitchen, need to finish the ceiling before I can move on to the woodwork. As I've mentioned in the Beacon Hill Builders thread, I felt very inspired by this kitchen so those are the colors I will use. I won't use cabinets thou, will try a period style this time ;)
  6. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    With most of the dirty work completed, I moved the doll house into a second floor hallway so that I could continue to work on it while my daughter plays with it. We tend to work on opposite sides of the house whenever possible. I have to say she's been very patient with Daddy in the way for over a year now.
  7. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Its been a year and a half since I started the interior of my Beacon Hill (err . . I mean my daughter's Beacon Hill). ;) I only get 5-7 hours a week to play . . I mean work on it, so it has been really slow going. I really admire the master mini builders that can produce something better than I've been able to do with a fraction of the time I've spent on mine!
  8. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This floor was simple, but fun and fast to complete. If the wood strips came in 1/8" lengths I would have used those for the borders instead.
  9. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Well, technically the first floor was first, but this was the first one I attempted with the pre-cut 1/16" thick wood strips. Everything was stained in advance although some stain touch-up was required after installation.
  10. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This was my attempt at using leftover 1/16" wood siding strips as a floor after a disaster post installation. Although everything was going well and the floor was all glued in place, I got the "bright idea" to fill in a couple gaps with spackle / drywall mud. It was a dumb idea! The stuff got stuck in the wood grain and looked terrible. I attempted to sand it out, but that just made the wood strips so thin that they started to bow and come detached. I'm going to have to gut this entire floor and start over. Oh, well, lesson learned.
  11. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This floor took me a while to do but I'm reasonably happy with it. The fireplace is one of the few splurges I purchased.
  12. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I created the floor in two sections because I still had the dividing wall in place. The more I looked at other Beacon Hill builds, the more I thought an open floor plan made more sense, so I pulled out the interior walls and reworked the floors.

    "Taking Sides"

    From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Working from the front of the dollhouse to complete the second floor hallway floor and patio finally gives my daughter the access to the entire back-side that she wanted.
  14. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I found out the hard way that its easier to paint window trim and corners before attempting to put on any wallpaper. If you don't the tiniest of errors with the wallpaper show up clearly.
  15. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    This room still needs a ceiling (well, they all do at this point). The wallpaper is fake tile, but I think it looks acceptable.

    Hinged Windows

    From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I spent a bit of time putting hinges on most of the smaller windows so they can be opened and closed. I added the little doorknobs so that little fingers could pull them shut from the outside.
  17. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I really like making these parkay floors despite the time involved so I started the front porch recently. I haven't figured out whether or not to add railings at this point as they may be too delicate for my young daughter.
  18. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I had some white wood stain that I attempted to use on this floor, but it really shows the minor imperfections. I'll have to do some clean up!
  19. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I couldn't find a bathroom tile floor approach that I thought I could implement to look real, so I purchased some of the small tile plastic stuff. It looks pretty realistic in my opinion.
  20. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    To complete the floor on the far side of this room, I had to pull out the door and frame. I thought it wise to make it easier to remove for cleaning or repairs in the future, so I used brass screws to join the back trim panel to the rest of the door. This creates a bit of a sandwich that holds everything together in the door frame. The door itself uses sturdy 12 lb brass hinges that are attached with cut down brass screws and super-glue. Its quite durable thus far.
  21. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I plan on turning this room into a mini-disco. I already have a hinged back panel that is ready to install, but I need to add brass sheets to the inside of these remaining walls for structural stability (and a funk-adelic look!). I also plan on adding an electrical socket so the attic can be taken on and off.
  22. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    Here's her current situation, while being away from the forum for a while, I was still showing her love! Lots more to do, hopefully I can put a dent in the exterior in the next few weeks!
  23. From the album: Beacon Hill

    Apparently the superintendent has given up on my return and is taking a little nap in the new bed.

  24. From the album: Beacon Hill

    I propped the front door pieces against the house this morning to see what it looked like and was surprised at the blank demi-lune. I found some wood adornments I'd bought some time ago. With a little stain, I think it looks great.
