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
Will slowly upload pictures. I dry fit the house twice and finally cut the floor and foundation as it was too big to fit thru the door. Lots of pictures of dry fit to help me and maybe others put it together. I am putting on all wallpaper, doors, window frames before finally gluing the walls. I did not put in the window sills as windows will be the final thing I do on the house. I made a real copper ceiling for the kitchen as I had a large roll of copper, cut out squares and imprinted with Cuddlebug.
While I began to create building for the love of Barbie, the creativity of building room boxes, 1:12 and 1:6 scale dioramas, furniture, dioramas and dollhouses has become my motivation. I thank everyone here including but not limited to both 1:6 and 1:12 (and smaller scale) artists who have inspired me to keep creating and growing. I am so happy to be included in this miniature building community.
My wonderful bf found a dollhouse at Goodwill one day for $4.99. When i walked into the house that day after work, this beauty was waiting for me on the table. It's a tudor style, and I knew instantly it was going to be a Harry Potter-inspired house. I am in the process now of transforming it into a wizard shop, like one would find in Diagon Alley.
This kit was designed to be a Victorian store, but it really preferred being a Bed and Breakfast. I added a ground floor inside stairway, with did not come with the kit. The outside stairway goes to the owners' bedroom. I also added the daylight basement.
This is a long needed addition, since even before I got into miniatures. This is a 12 X 18 sunroom style room addition I designed myself. Its basically all windows and doors, the wide doorway is for a 6 ft double opening French door,[ for moving large mini mansions in and out ] The windows on the existing house will become doorways, one will be a 4 ft french door, the other a single solid door. this room solves a lot of problems for us.
