My original plan was to modify a Dura Craft Newberg. Then I found the Birdswoodshack laser cut model kit of the UP House on Etsy. The model is laser cut from 1/8" Baltic birch plywood. Its dimensions are 19" wide by 16" deep by 21.5" high. The kit was not intended to be a dollhouse, but rather a fully enclosed model. It does, however, include the lower and upper floors, as well as a stairway. I have enlarged the window openings to accept commercial windows, but I will need to make my own doors. I have attached clapboard siding, and will also attach the straight and fishscale shakes. The house is slightly smaller than 1" scale, perhaps 1/14 scale or so. This hurts my sense of scale, but it is based on a cartoon house, so I am going to make it work. I am going to need to devise a way to open the back of the house for access, probably hinged to open like a book. I haven't drawn plans for the interior yet, but I think it will have five rooms, or areas. Two upstairs will be a bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs will be a living room, kitchen, and an entry hallway with the stairway. Ok, now I will try to upload some pictures. So, apparently my pictures are too large. I will need to downsize them, but cannot accomplish that on this android device. I will try to do that on my computer tomorrow. Until then, Happy Miniaturizing!
