  1. A little assistance would be appreciated please. The provided instructions for Section A, step #3 of the instructions are as clear as mud, there are no pictures of said step, and all of the other posts that I can find relating to this procedure, are not that helpful (but thanks for trying everyone). That said, I've created the attached images to clarify the instructions for myself, and if they are correct, perhaps it will help the next lost soul who stumbles on this step (pun indeed intended). If I've gotten this wrong, PLEASE let me know and I will make the necessary correction(s). Thank You!

    Close-up of porch with a doll I purchased on Etsy from a lady in the UK. She named her Doris Dittany. She is just adorable, I think anyway.

    It's funny. The camera refuses to recognize the actual colors of the house. It's a perfect avocado green, not lime, the orange in the pics is actually caramel, and the blue is a deep dark peacock color. *Shrug* Well anyway, it's getting there

    The bottom porch beams are on now, and next the top beams and arches After that, i can get the roof on.
  5. Hi happy mini friends, I was wondering if any of you have the plans for the wrap around porch with the gazebo on the corner? I really think I can put it together if I can just get started. I don't think it would cost me $150 for the materials. When I get back from the family visit, I will try to design one. I'll let you know how it goes.
  6. I have a board with grass on it and a house that doesn't cover the board where a porch should be. I want to build a porch on the front and right side. Greenleaf doesn't offer one for me to buy and didn't suggest any plans to do it. What do lovely people have that you could swap to me for something I might have?

    I drilled holes in the base of the posts and inserted a small nail (with the head clipped off)and pounded them into position. The nail gives added strength to the structure. I like how the blue pointed stakes mimic the blue diamonds on the gingerbread at the roof peaks.

    porch frame

    From the album: RGT Ellwanger House/North Park reno

    Since I had to replace all of the posts, I had to re-imagine the gingerbread assembly. The original posts had a dado that the gingerbread piece fit into, but I wasn't about to attempt that with the new posts! I am not that skilled! LOL Instead, I cut pieces of square strip wood to fit in between each set of posts, then glued a long flat piece of strip wood across the top of the 2 assembly sets. This gave the whole unit strength. The gingerbread arches were then glued to the front edge of the square strips. I took some pieces of the old wood trim and created little pointed stakes and painted them blue. I glued them over the gap on the posts where the two gingerbread pieces didn't quite meet.

    Christmas 2014

    From the album: Country House - Album 2

    And the stockings were hung on the porch trim with clips . . . Before Grandma and Grandpa took down the Christmas decorations, I managed to take this shot of the porch. Last year the girls' stockings kept falling from the fireplace, as they were hanging by the tips of one of the candy canes wedged in the felt. This year, Grandma, Grandpa, and their dog Fala got stockings with their names on them too, and the family decided to hang them all up together where they can be noticed by the outside world. I didn't have regular Christmas tree hooks to give them, so they used red coated paper clips to hang them up.

    Note the birdhouse waiting for the birds to return in spring.
  11. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Gluing down 1/16" wood strips with wood glue was easier than the 1/32" stuff used on the siding. There was very little warping, although I did have to sand it all down once I was complete. I'm pretty pleased with the way its turning out.

    Porch Decking

    From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    The wood is 1/16" thick and the front steps are 1/8". I shaved down the inside of the top step so that it would be flush with the rest of the decking. Thank goodness for rotary 'Dremmel' tools!
  13. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    After considering several flooring alternatives and reviewing over a thousand pictures of 1:1 Victorian home decks, I opted to go with an assorted width, running bond approach for the porch.
  14. From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    Finally decided on what pattern to paint the porch railings. After a nerve-wracking hour, this is the result. Carpal tunnel (even years post-surgery) makes painting small details very difficult. And I absolutely had to concentrate on getting the mirror-image stripes right, lol.

  15. So, I'm happily building along, thinking I've done a great thing by upgrading my plain porch spindles and posts with Houseworks upgrades. THEN I see M & D's FABULOUS Victoria's Farmhouse and how they used 2-3 colors on each of their spindles (instead of just one color), and I'm thinking... dang! I gotta paint all my spindles like that because it looks so awesome! <Cue psychological breakdown here> Am I insane? For one thing, this is my first build and I've started with a doozie of a house as it is. For another, I have something like 70+ spindles to paint, and I've already spent several evenings putting the first coat on and then SANDING EACH ONE BY HAND when the paint caused the grain to rise. But, man, their porches look so cool! And I've never seen anyone do that to a Dura-Craft Victorian Mansion before. What do you guys think? I've attached pictures of several paint options (please ignore the horrible slap-on job I did... just trying to get an idea of what color goes where). I have one of the porch posts in there too... not sure but I'm leaning towards the garnet color on the ball thingees and the lighter grey color (sorta hard to see, maybe I should go darker?) on the flat part in between all three ball sections. Suggestions, comments, advice, tips, etc., etc., all greatly appreciated! FYI, since you can't really tell in the picture, the colors on the spindles are light grey at the bottom of the one closest to the post, light grey on the long flat part with white on the balls on the spindle in the middle, and the last spindle on the right has grey on the top two balls above the two red ones.

    This is my favorite picture of the house so far, as it looks like it is twilight time in early spring. The tulips look so real, and the blue reflecting from Maureen's real life window looks like the ocean waves showing through her house.

    Spring Welcome Mat

    From the album: Country House - Renovated

    Grandma and Grandpa have a new spring welcome mat. I can't think of a more appropriate one to reflect this family.
