Due to the size of the Dragon that my husband gave me I had to expand on the house size . so The new Fairy house is the Pierce . It will have a Dragon Nursery not he third floor . This will be the first house I'll do out of Paperclay. I'm really excited as it will be colorful and very aged .
This is from a Chinese kit, that had paper on the walls and roofs that resembled stonework and Spanish tiles. Instead of using the paper, I covered the exteriors with Paperclay and formed stones. I covered the roof with 1:24 Spanish tile plastic sheets. The interior wallpapers were not used as well. The spiral staircase, which I spent many hours trying to perfect, turned out to be it's own disaster, so I just filled in the staircase opening and left it out. The house is not electrified, as my hands and eyes wouldn't work with those very teeny wires. I also changed the furniture and the landscaping.
This is a project that I have been dreaming about for years, and now I finally have the time and means to make it a reality. My plan is recreate as much as I can the old beach house that I visited on vacation when I was a little child back in my old country in the Caribbean. I am using 2 Greenleaf Adams kits, that i will place side by side, using 2 of the side walls as interior room dividers to make the bedrooms. I am also upgrading the windows and the front door, and adding the bedrooms doors and bathroom doors. The front part of the house will have 2 bedrooms and a living room sandwiched between them. I am adding 3 smaller rooms in the back that will be a kitchen behind one bedroom, a dining room adjacent to the living room, and a bathroom behind the second bedroom. The beach house that I used to visit was not distributed exactly as this one, because the kitchen was in an outside structure and so was the so called bathroom (rustic shower and latrine basically), but I can feel the same breeze with my dollhouse that I felt back in my childhood.
I am adding things as I go along with the building process. I am still debating about electricity because back then we only had gas lamps. Not sure yet about this. I will use corrugated paper for the roof, and I am having a sky window on the back roof, above the dining room.
Working on a 1/6 scale stacking design, with the elements I love from Salisbury house in Des Moines IA, Coheeries Mansion from A Winters Tale movie, Reign series Castle interiors, Skyfall home with the construction principals from my JP Morgan 1/6 scale dollhouse and other dollhouses. I will build the windows my self, since they will be various and large, the largest windows 20in x 15in [some bump out style ] My husband made me promise no construction will begin until my design layout on all floors is complete. Its an ambitious project yet in my mind I am coming up with a simplified method that will be very workable
~The Sea Hag~ This house has evolved and changed so much since I first built it,it was originaly dark, brooding and empty and then it slowly became light and charming.I thought I would never decorate it and now it seems to take the contents of every other house I own for its own...very demanding and rewarding;-)
A new build! This is the half-scale camping coach kit from Jane Harrop: http://www.janeharrop.co.uk/camping-coach.html I want to do a luxury version of a camping coach/train car, based as much as possible on the Orient Express.
A little pixie named Potato (who everyone calls Po) wanted a house. Just a little thing where he could quietly read as he snuggled into his favorite chair, munching on a little hazelnut cookie or two along with his cup of tea. This is the story of his cozy little home.
