From the album: The Scrappy, dollhouse made of scrapsI finally finished building the thing. I'm happy it's over with. My goal was to use up all the stuff that wasn't used building my McKinley and not to spend any money on it. The not spending money part meant I'd be having to cut my own molding and stuff like that. I knew I didn't have enough shingles to cover the roof so I ended up using cut up pieces from a cereal box and coloring them with colored pencils. I could go on and on with all the "micky mouse" things I came up with. All in all the house is sturdy and ready to be played with the last thing to do is put up curtains.
From the album: The Scrappy, dollhouse made of scrapsI'm happy with the way it turned out except for one thing, I wish now that I had made the house deeper. It looks like a dollhouse that has been cut in half and is messing the back side.
From the album: The Scrappy, dollhouse made of scrapsThe Scrappy ....after 12 hours of nonstop work ... now I can look at it and actually feel like I may get this house done after all. I feel so relieved that I don't have to think about the design anymore... I'm happy with the window placement, the front porch is connecting with the side gazebo just like I imagined it.....Ive decided not to put a roof on the gazebo... instead it well be the second story balcony or whatever its called...lol... I made my first staircase.......Holy Cow! Now I know why people are so proud of themselves if they get a staircase built! I put a white wash on the front of the house so I could see how the windows would look... the exterior of the house well be covered with siding. I'm not buying any wood for the siding....I'm going to use the united states post office free priority shipping boxes I use for Ebay...the card board is exactly the right thickness. I cut and glued then painted a few stripes and it looks exactly like wood. It's time to figure out what type of roof I want...gads.
