building progress 2

This week I got some work done on my new dollhouse. The weather was wonderfull and I had a whole week of from work. My boyfriend also had a week of and we spent most of the week in our boat, reading Lord of the Rings, and having barbecues XD

But I also had plenty of time to measure, think, draw and saw on my new dollhouse. After a long dark and cold winter I could finally do the work outside, wich is more fun and les messy!

In the picture above, you can see a piece of wood I used to test the exterior brick on. I'm very happy with the experiment.

It was really tricky to fit in the windows. I used euromini windows, wich have very different sizes than the windows used in the building plan I bought. Also, no 2 of the same kind of windows are exactly the same size :(

The round piece/tower will hang over the front corner. On top of the tower there will be another floor and then a roof. The 3-storey bay won't get another floor.
The building is huge allready, and it is far from finished! There will be a large roof on top, and on the right side there will be an extension that I haven't even build yet!

You can see an example of the finished building here
Mine will be quite different, but I use the same building plan as base.

  4. Oh My! Your new house is so huge! It is coming along nicely. I will look in and see how it moves along. The brick looks great to me.
    What a fab way to spend time off, in a boat reading LOTR!!!

  5. Thank you all for the compliments! It is a huge project indeed, and the progress is always to slow for my taste! But a project like this requires a lot of patience. I'm happy you like following the progress, when the summerholiday starts it'll probably move a lot faster :)

  6. Wow this looks gigantic, keep up the good work, it looks fab.

  7. Thank you Dave! It'll get even bigger ;)
