Intro of my project HERE
I always loved Tudor architecture. I live here in Los Angeles and there is A LOT of 1920s built Tudor homes that have always caught my eye. Living in a 1920s building myself, I always loved the finished and details that you just don't see in modern day constructions. Thus, leading me to focus my finishes and details around the 1920s.
For the living room, I decided nothing would look richer than to do dark stained floor to ceiling paneling. I think to achieve this I plan on creating secondary walls traced from the kit walls out of the same kit style wood. Doing all the finishes and wiring and then gluing the wall into place directly over a kit wall. This is still a theory so stay tuned to see the work in progress.
I thought a carved stone fireplace would look great with the wall paneling. Luckily, I found THIS ONE which will be really easy to paint and inset into the existing fireplace cavity.
The provided staircase with the kit is cute and all, but not good enough for this project. My goal is to make this as to-scale as possible with as much detail as possible so I plan on making the stairs a bit more grand and intricate. I love the look of the heavy balusters and the square newel posts. I think it will be easy to achieve using pre made staircase pieces and just hand making the newel posts out of square dowels and some baseboard moulding trimmed down. Like I said above.... we'll see how this theory plays out.
Lastly is the ceiling. The first picture has a hint of this finish but the last picture shows what I want in a bit more detail. White plaster ceiling with heavy crossed beams, trimmed with a small crown moulding. I have a feeling that this is going to be a pain. If anyone has any suggestions on how to do a detailed ceiling like that please share!
Stay Tuned for my next post: Dining Room Inspiration
This is going to be a little macabre. I noticed this a few months ago, but never posted. Tonight I figure why not share my thought to see if I am crazy or if other people see it.
Ed Gein is called a serial killer by many. He actually only killed two women, but stole a bunch of bodies from a graveyard. He made bowls out of skulls. He made a wastebasket out of human skin and, well, look him up. For those of you that haven't heard of him, Google him. Okay, so I was watching one of those Investigation Discovery shows and it was about Gein. They showed some film of his house. I backed up the video three or four times because the resemblance is UNCANNY.
You tell me ... How similar are his house and the Dura Craft Farmhouse??? Lose the dormers and the fancy trim and slide the front door over.
...and before anyone asks -- no, I don't think I am going to build it that way (although it is an idea).
