Hi all.. I am working on a Greenleaf Haunted House, which will become a Witch's House.I am currently at the stage where the shell is finished and I need to start thinking about the exterior. There are more photos in my gallery. I chose this particular house as I felt it had a good, versatile layout that I could take in various directions depending on where inspiration took me. This is where I am torn. When I came up with the original concepts for this, the vision I had in my mind was more of the old tudor tumble down cottage - wattle and daub, timber beams etc, so it would be more the English country witch. Then I was thinking about the possibility of the run down, weathered American. And then I saw a photo of an orange painted lady and that just threw me for a complete spin. I can't decide which way to take this! There are a few photos attached of various inspiration I have collected. Obviously the house would not be finished as a copy of these as it's a different shape, but I am just not sure which overall "look and feel" to follow. As far as the interior and such, I am going for the look of a "real" witch's house... while I have a few pumpkins, a black cat, owl etc, it's more the believable magic universe, not a cartoony Halloween house so I was worried the orange painted lady style might not compliment that and the older weathered look would be better. But at the same time - I've never done the old weathered and aged effect and have no idea how to achieve it. Just wondering what other people's thoughts and suggestions would be! I think I have too many ideas going on!
I'm in awe of this room box. It's Harry Dresden's lab based on The Dresden Files television series (scroll past the first couple of pictures): http://www.therpf.com/f9/dresden-files-bob-skull-update-24997/#post1210285 I love what can be found through google image searches Now my imagination is whirling with ideas for building something based on the books......
