  1. Cheverly

    Attic windows

    From the album: Whitebrush Manor - DC VM800

    I installed two this weekend, one in each gable.
  2. So I was just playing with Whitebrush because I'm considering putting in a double front door instead of a single, and I noticed a crack in that wall going from one end of the door opening to the frame. Then, in the middle of sheer panic, I noticed no fewer than EIGHT more cracks in the siding, in various places (but most are in the tower, I noticed)! Of course they all go entirely through to the other side. :weep: Stress fractures maybe? I'm not sure! It's mounted on a base and doesn't get banged around. I do know that some people have talked about this happening to Dura-Craft houses in the past, but in the instances I've read about it's generally been related to temperature changes. Whitebrush is inside my RL house, climate controlled, and not near a big window. So, what should I do to keep it from completely disintegrating? My plan was to run round wire after padding the walls with thin plywood, which I *think* would help the walls be more sturdy, but I don't know. I do know that I can't really finish out the house as long as there's the threat of cracking walls, right(??), otherwise the wallpaper could tear/wrinkle/who knows what. How do I repair the cracks that are visible now? I've got some wood filler, but it's sandy/lumpy and doesn't really fit in tiny cracks without being sanded out again when I'm trying to get it smooth. I'm seriously freaking out right about now. This is my DREAM dollhouse, the one I've planned for and thought about since I was 13! HELP!!!

    Or Single Door?

    From the album: Whitebrush Manor - DC VM800

    I think I know which I'm leaning towards, but I'd like outside input.

    From the album: Whitebrush Manor - DC VM800

    It has been a while since I've posted a photo, but here's where I am so far. You can't see them in the picture, but I've added hooks to the porch roof support so I can put up hanging baskets later. I'm having sooo much fun!!

    Walls are up!

    From the album: Whitebrush Manor - DC VM800

    Did a dry-fit and tweaked the flooring before gluing everything together.
  6. 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.
