    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    I have a small base for the house and wanted a way to secure the house to the base without permanently gluing it yet. I came up with a sort of pier block idea. I cut half inch square blocks that are the same depth as under the base of the house. I secured them to the house in the corners with glue dots. The glue dots aren't permanent and are just lightly enough attached to hold the "piers" in place so that I could position the house onto the base, permanently gluing the "piers" to the base. When the glue was dry, I was able to gently pop the house off the piers and remove the glue dots. Now th

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    The siding has been giving me fits. I almost gave up and went to clapboard. Almost. But then I decided to slow down and cut out all the window (and door) openings so that I would get the effect I want. It's tedious, but turning out much better. In the top image you can see the piecing, and even though I've lined up the board "planks" the seams will show. Filling with spackle won't hide this, so I had to stop and stare at the house for awhile. I didn't want to cut all the openings; but the oval ones are the most difficult, and while slow going, it's turning out right (see bottom image).

    Savonarola chair

    From the album: A Few Other Things

    I got this half scale lasercut Savonarola chair kit from SDK Miniatures. It's exquisitely detailed and comes with a separate gluing jig that must be assembled first. This is a *new* product on their website and I fell in love with it for my half scale lighthouse, which is next up on my construction calendar. It is pricy and more than I usually will pay for a furniture kit, but it is exactly what I envision for the lighthouse.

    From the album: The White Rose

    A closer view of the dry fit. I started by cutting the dentil molding square, but didn't like the look and couldn't decide what to do about embellishments for the empty corners it would create, even though my inspiration photo has cornices that square off at the corner. So I started cutting inside and outside corners and like the look of it. Someone please tell me if you think it looks odd or is wrong. I'm adding a piece at the brow line to make it heavier, and plan to add this same thickness to the top roof line, but ran out of materials. Oh well, another trip to Beverly's! That's an acc

    From the album: The White Rose

    I've finally started dry fitting the exterior siding and trims. It took me awhile to figure out the layering for the various buildups and trim. I finally decided to just dry fit it all, which means using lots of masking tape. :lol:

    I think this photo helps give an idea of where I am going with this, even if one of the posts is upside down :lol: Good thing nothing is glued.

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    Installing baseboards can be a challenge. The angles in the attic require cutting the baseboards carefully. For baseboard for this house I'm using a 1/4 inch 1:12 scale chair rail that is only 1/16 inch thick. While this would translate into a 6 inch baseboard in real life, that's still within acceptable range. And the grooves give it nice interest that the straight flat baseboards lack. I got the last of this product (3 sticks) from the vendor. Other places are out of stock so hopefully I will be able to get more of this in the future.

    These two kits arrived today. I ordered them specifically for this build and both pieces will go in the library/study on the third floor.

    The front door from the inside. The trim and door are just precariously balanced so I can get a feel for how it might look.

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    I'm trying out ideas on the front door. I'd thought of doing stained glass, but liked the idea of an opaque etched glass look. This is opaque heavy scrapbook paper with a large printed pattern in white that I've taken details from. It's sturdy enough to stand on its own without the plastic glass insert, which creates too thick a layer otherwise at half scale. Since the exterior will be all white, I'm thinking this might work well.

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    I had to completely redo the floor for the parlor. I trashed it trying to install the first floor paper, but recut this piece using the ruined original as a template. I've had a couple of challenges in the room already. First, since I like to build dormers and bays separately and then attach them, I needed to decide early because of this paper how I would deal with the vertical corners at the join. I had originally decided to just use a wood trim to cover the corners. I had stained the pieces the same color as the baseboards, but as I looked at them, they looked too dark to me. I shy away from

    Interior shot of the dormer. The black doesn't photograph well, but it will have a wood interior window trim here.

    Exterior shot of dormer glued in place. More black eyes. It should look good with the white exterior.

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    Painting and repainting the skylight. I made a mistake here and got ahead of myself and forgot to paint the skylight before gluing it in place! It was very difficult to get to all the surfaces. Then second mistake, I painted it the wrong color. I was thinking of the exterior and forgetting it's a window, so I painted it white. Wrong! It's supposed to be black. So after the white paint was dry I redid it in black. At least it was easier to see the spots I'd missed :lol:

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    This is an image of the Leander Sherman house in San Francisco, my inspiration for the White Rose. I'm planning to add trims to the exterior and to do the mansard roof in a style similar to the Sherman house. It's been a real challenge finding half scale trims (some of what I've gotten are one nice scale that I'm adapting for half scale.) I've been accumulating a supply of trims that aren't quite right (when I get them) LOL! But fingers crossed on this next order!

    Ingalls family dolls

    From the album: Little House in the Big Woods Cabin (half scale)

    Mary at the mirror. I didn't realize until I put her here how low that mirror is! I should move it up a bit.

    Ingalls family dolls

    From the album: Little House in the Big Woods Cabin (half scale)

    The dolls don't stand up on their own so for now they're leaning on things. I might try sticking wax to the bottoms of their feet.

    The washstand doesn't do as good a job as the dresser that was here before of hiding the wallpaper gap where the dormer meets the wall. Oh well.

    I rearranged the furniture in the bedroom to make a space for this Cassidy Creations washstand. I bought it off eBay unable to tell from the pictures that it was very poorly finished. I sanded and painted it, then sanded off some of the paint for a distressed look. I think it fits the decor of the puzzle house better than the gree Bauder Pine washstand I had in here before.
