Great Job Karen!!! I can't wait until I'm halfway complete...keep us posted on the decorating and the Pierce!!! I, too, am counting pennies working on the Fairfield...I'm a little anal and hate to not have items on hand...I've been alotting myself so much money at a time and believe I have enough supplies to complete two DH's, although I had the audacity to order 3 (before I completed this first one). Anyway, I can now replace as I go and pick up items as they go on sale!

I'll keep watch and post items as I find them on sale/clearance...hope that helps!!!

I'm gonna display my Fairfield in my mom's hair salon...hopefully, the ladies would like to purchase...I'm thinking I'll go all out for the display (debating on lighting) but purchase some miniatures to sell retail...that way they can purchase from me and I'll have the $$$ to support the hobby.

Anyway...Good JOB!!!

Your house looks great! I am helping my daughter build hers now inbetween the build of my house.

So your husband is going to put the house on a bar stool? Can he put a turn table on there first so your house could swivel? Maybe put some furniture sliders on the table legs so you can pull it away from the wall.

There is no rush to decorate. Find your pieces here and there. You may find some that will work for your Pierce before you are even ready for it.

It's beautiful, Karen. I'm working on the same kit and I see you didn't use the kit stairs either, lol. The foundation finish is definitely amazing!

Call me a sucker for nostalgia, but I think you should keep it -- it's your first one! And I think it's a fun sharing experience with your hubbie. If ONLY someone in my RL appreciated my minis as much as I did. LOL. It's beautiful, and you did a great job!!

That's funny about your husband. My husband collects military figures so he's always eyeing my miniatures. I think your house looks great and I'm glad you're keeping it.

The Greenleaf furniture kits would be a great place to start if you're not comfortable making furniture from scratch yet.
