This mystery dollhouse I found on the side of the road with a $10 sign on it, filled with the furniture you can see on the left in the first picture. I made tons of progress on it since: I removed most of the tabs where the boards locked together and used nails and glue to keep it together instead, added some braces in weak spots, took off the black trim and plastic windows, took the partition on the second floor and put it in the first, changed where the stairs will go (spiral instead of plain), added two windows to the left side, turned the porch roof into a second floor porch, turned one of the windows into a door to access the porch, and removed some of the third floor to give the master bedroom a vaulted ceiling, added mat board trim on the windows and doors, and added a dormer to the attic bedroom. Since I've taken the last photos, I've started adding cedar shakes to the outside, finished the porches, added outer trims, some of the crown molding, and re-wallpapered the entry. Any ideas on where this house came from? also, any critiques/comments/suggestions welcome!
From the album: Duracraft NewbergI cut a corner off the porch, i'm hoping with some changes to the entry I can make that odd little window make more sense. Paperclay stone work around the base, it will continue around the entire "basement". I added a faux casement window to try and pull the platform into the house and take away some of the dead space on the front of this house.
