    From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    Just a view of the back.
  2. After months of looking and researching on the web I finally broke down and purchased the Fairfield. I chose it because of the small size and available work space in my own home. Armed with so much information as I waited for it's arrival I had visions of starting right in on the night it came. LOL! After opening the box and going through the instructions, (twice), I popped out the first floor to get a feel for the size and layout. Still in love with this mini, just have lots of questions. Hope you all can help. I am working with very limited funds so I am having to think outside the box. I am thinking About using Sculpy clay to make the stone foundation. Has anyone tried this. I have tons of sculpy and the mold to make perfect scale stone trim. Thanks in advance for any help I can get on this.
  3. Hello Eveyone! My name is Sandy and I am from Virginia. I first came here when I was deciding which house to build. After seeing everyone's work and reading posts I decided on the Fairfield. I just got it in the mail yesterday so I'll be here a while.

    <p>Here is the wallpaper I order for this little B&amp;B.&nbsp; They are pretty much color-coordinated.&nbsp; Once I am done with the final dry fit, I will decide which paper is going in which room.&nbsp; I can now also plan on the exterior colors.</p>

    Left Side

    From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    <p>I ended up taking the whole house apart again . . . turns out the foundation was warped.&nbsp; This was causing problems the further I got along.&nbsp; So, I am now ready to start gluing a few things back together now!&nbsp; The bay windows will have the red color on the bottoms - it looks kind of pink in this picture because it needs about two more coats!!&nbsp; Those dark colors sure take alot of coats.&nbsp; I used the skinny sticks on the bottoms, and the top part will be siding.&nbsp; I am also going to incorporate shingles at the peaks and paint them the red color.</p>

    From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    <p>I decided to brick the fireplaces.&nbsp; Next to the fireplace&nbsp;will be a little fire box to keep the firewood.&nbsp; Above that will be shelving.&nbsp; I also need to drybrush some&nbsp;rust and brown paint colors on the bricks so they&nbsp;don&#39;t all look so perfect and uniform in color.&nbsp;</p>

    I couldn't resist . . . I ordered my first little piece of furniture for the kitchen, and it came today. I had seen this in 1" scale and liked it, but had nowhere to use it. When I saw it came in 1/2" scale, I knew the Fairfield kitchen needed it! You can see I am putting in a different staircase, and I haven't decided yet what I am going to do as far as a wall goes. I am thinking of closing in the staircase back and making it into a little pantry under the stairs.

    Third Floor

    From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    I am going to make the third floor into two bedrooms and maybe a small bath. I am also leaving the back of the tower off so this little room can be incorporated into the third floor. I will have to do some cutting on the roof and make some side walls.

    From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    The bay window on the front is the last thing I need to fit on. It needs a little sanding, and to be honest, I just could'nt sand anymore tonight. My arm is killing me!! I also ordered a french door to add so the little people can get to the rooftop terrace above the ground floor porch. I can see this will take a little playing around as the roof on the right side is in the way. I know others have added a door here. How did you handle this? When I look at the pictures of this little house when I first brought it home with all the gaps and spaces (and crooked walls, crooked porch roof, etc.) and look at it now, I can't believe it is the same house. It is getting happy!!

    From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    Here's a view of the side. When I ordered the new roof pieces that were missing, it also had the tower side on the same sheet, which was a good thing because when dry fitting, I realized that whoever put this together the first time had cut off the tabs on the side, and they were needed to get a nice fit with the little bathroom wall on the second floor. I just didn't punch out the two windows yet. I am also replacing the two round windows on the tower top with little octagon ones.
  11. Is there anything better than coming home from work and finding a "mini" package on your porch! :jumping: I had ordered wallpaper and also the Fairfield Component Kit (I think Tracy told me about this) which is all the windows and doors. I also ordered two staircase kits., It seemed like forever waiting for everything to come (I only placed the orders last week Thursday and Friday)!! I am finally done with all the priming and sanding and am now working on my first dry fit. This is the first time I have ever worked with the tabs and slots, and it is coming along nicely. This sad little house is slowly getting happy! I wanted to have everything I need so I can decorate as I go as was suggested by many people here. I can see it would be hard to do some areas if you waited until the whole house was put together, which is what I am used to doing, but with the 1" scale. I have received so much advice and helpful info here. Thank you so much to everyone! You guys are the best!!

    Another view of dry-fit.
  16. From the album: Fairfield Renovation

    As you can see, I am having a little problem with the center wall floor . . . I think the foundation board is warped. I will take this apart and fix that!! When I was doing the dry-fit, I noticed some of my pieces didn't look the same shape as the schematic diagram. I then realized that whoever put this together the first time had glued little pieces of wood in various places . . . I think this is one of the reasons the walls and floors had so many gaps in them before I took everything apart.

    Looking into the livingroom.
  18. Hello all, My name is Jackie. I am new to this doll house building thing. I am building my very first house, the Fairfield. I was told by the man at the hobby store that I was buying something very different than what I have but I LOVE it! I have done things kinda backwords but I am making it work and I am thrilled with the results so far. I plan on building 10 more. The next one will be for my 6 year old daughter so a mini will probably not work. I am excited to jump into the next house. I am enjoying showing off my work to who ever walks into my house and asking my friends and family to look for small scale furnishings while they are out. It has become a new obsession, I am excited about learning all the new things this hobby has to offer! I am struggling on the chimney flue which is what has led me to this forum.
