  1. Help solve the mystery!

     It looks like Renea took down her album of her Williamsburg, probably when she sold it.
  2. Help solve the mystery!

    Kelly, I *think* my house has the original houseworks components in it. But I cant remember for sure, and I can't access it right now. It does have thick plexiglass with taped on panes, so it might not be. (EDIT  I looked at my pictures, and it doesn't appear to have houseworks windows,  only the door. The trim looks like the picture in the OP) I think the house pictured has the stock provided trim.  Like Miranda mentioned, these houses do have the same kinds of trim around the roof and the base. Here's the link to my album. I dont have any interior pictures, boo.  Nancy at HBS let me copy parts of the catalog a few years back, so I have the 1990 price list and a picture list of the different models. There are 12 pictured,  1 being the Houseworks Victorian. Both companies are here in Atlanta, so I imagine they worked closely together. I also copied the product pages of the Mt Vernon and Williamsburg, but I mailed the Williamsburg one to Renea (mygrommi) and dummy me didn't think to keep a copy. The big difference between Mt Vernon and Williamsburg is columns and front porch. It's a beautiful house, but it is huge. I call it my big scary brick house. Because I guess it wasn't heavy enough at the original 70 pounds, someone added real clay bricks to it! The measurements for the Mt Vernon are 40" H 58" W 24" D. The porch is probably about 6", so the Williamsburg is about 18" deep. Something funny... this weekend I was thinking about this house and how I could fit it in my work room to work on it. And then I see this post. Must be a sign!  Let me know if you have any other questions. 
  3. Help solve the mystery!

    Hey, I'm late... sorry! This is a house made by Jerry Jarrell of Jarrel Enterprises out of Stone Mountain, Ga for The Dollhouse Inc. This is the Williamsburg with wings, item# 102. They came built, either unfinished with no components, unfinished with Houseworks components,  or with finished exterior. Renea used to have this house, but I can't for the life of me remember her username here. Her albums should be named though. She has since sold it to our local dollhouse shop I believe. I have its sister, the Mt Vernon Colonial. Pictures are in my albums.
  4. What are you up to today? This week?

    Congrats Jeremy!!   
  5. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    We started getting the rain bands about 2 hours ago. It's a fair amount. The wind hasn't picked up yet. It should peak about 5am. It's predicted to be about 17mph at 7am when kids are at the bus stop, so we'll see what is decided for school. My daughter in S Ga is almost out of the rain, but the wind is still increasing. Should peak there in about 2 hours. They closed her work finally, so now I'm hoping she'll still go somewhere other than her house for the night.
  6. So how is the weather where you're at ?

    My daughter lives feet from the divider line between Hurricane and TS warning. And she's on the east of the storm, in S Ga. So as far as I'm concerned, it's hurricane warning there. She has giant pine trees in her yard, and one could take out all 3 bedrooms. When Irma hit there last year, one of those huge trees fell on the house across the street, so it made it more real. She is planning to go to a family members house tonight, and they have gassed up the generator. Thing is, as of now she's supposed to work, but she's hoping they will at least close early. She said many places already are closed. Rain started there a few minutes ago. Interesting though, She's not in the "cone", but still has all the warnings.  My youngest son switched colleges this year thankfully, because it will still be Cat 2 as it crosses over SW Ga. For Irma, I got to stress about 2 kids, at least it's just 1 now. My county (south of Atlanta) is expected to receive 4-5" of rain, but not the super high winds. Valdosta (where Anslee is) will get the winds and hard rain, but maybe just a couple inches. I'm still confused on how living in mid-north Ga recently became hurricane prone! Everybody stay safe and check in!  
  7. What are you up to today? This week?

    Thanks Kathie. I was pretty sad. I like the September show put on by the AMS more than the Bishop Show in March. Oh well. I still have plenty of things that I'm not working on at the moment. BTW, I saw last night, that the March show is later in the month, the 22nd I think, instead of the first weekend (it used to be end of February). At least now it won't interfere with the KSU Formula Motorsports South Invitational Race that Brennen will be a part of this year! Unless they change the weekend for that as well...
  8. What are you up to today? This week?

    Yeah, Saturday driving is no fun. I'd much rather drive in the middle of a weekday, or even a Sunday. Especially on I-285. And right now they are doing road work and closing lanes. Last Saturday they had 2 lanes closed, and I chickened out driving to the Atlanta Miniature Show. Got about 20 minutes from home (out of about an hour) and turned around just before 285. I just couldn't do it. I was a little sad to have missed it, but honestly I just wasn't in the mood even before I left the house.
  9. Greenleaf Houses The next sale?

    Haha!! I'll let you know the next time I need a sale! I got the Wildwood Stable ordered, along with a pack of siding to use vertically, and then some vinyl flooring because I've always said I wanted to try it but never have. It won't be used for this build though. 
  10. What are you up to today? This week?

    Yay, have fun! And tell NJ I said Hi!    
  11. Greenleaf Houses The next sale?

    Yay! I was waiting on this too. I decided about 2 days after the last sale ended that I wanted to build a Wildwood Stable for my grandson. (I wish I could just get back the one I made for my niece several years back, but I'm sure that's long gone. ) Thanks for saying it loud enough for them to hear!
  12. Clapboard Siding Misery!

    I also pre painted my siding. I tried it both ways, but it actually seems better / easier doing it individually, so you get better coverage and don't have to worry about getting in all the cracks. Also, you don't have to use a lot of glue. That's just more moisture to introduce. Same when you're doing shingles. I just use small dots. I also live in a humid area.
  13. My first dollhouse AND rehab

    That is the Greenleaf Harrison.   I have 2... One I started rehabbing, and one I started building new.  Neither are very done!  Very pretty house. And you're right, it's not small!  Have fun! Oh, and the stairs are looking great, big difference.
  14. What are you up to today? This week?

    Tomorrow is the Atlanta Miniature Show! Yippee! :)
  15. KathieB's Garden Blog, Georgia edition :)

    Rain? Really?! 6"??  We got ZERO rain at my house!! It hasn't rained in days. And my trumpet plant "Mama Drama" is telling me all about it everytime I walk up the porch steps! (and for random people that don't know, Kathie and I live maybe 50 miles apart.)
