I know they already have a nice line of laser cut house in half scale but to me I like really detailed facades and interesting floor plans or staircases that have interest which the current selection is lacking. most of them seem the same to me, very boxy. Nice but not enough oomph to make my heart beat with the "omg that's gorgeous I must have one of those!" I have that feeling every time I look at the Garfield, Pierce, Beacon hill etc then the rational part of my brain kicks in and asks " uh-huh, and where do you plan to put them? Your kids like having bedrooms...."

Omgoodness.... The Glencroft is my FAVORITE house.... And I am now hooked on 1/2 scale.... I would love to have a 1/2 scale one sitting next to my regular one... I would probably have to buy more than one... lol

It's the Vineyard Cottage I'd love to see in half scale. I really like the other little half scale houses and would love to see several more of the bigger houses in half scale but if it came down to one wish it would be the Vineyard Cottage. I have a couple tiny friends begging for the big one and it is just tooooooo big for them :)

1/2 scale sure sounds like a great space saver.

I just don't know whether my clumsy old hands could do it justice
since I already have troubles with 1:12 scale.

But the biggest draw back for me is the poor selection and lack of really nice looking furniture, trims, accessories, etc.

That's exactly my problem Selkie. Not enough half scale furniture. Or accessories for that matter. Maybe if I could get one of those 3D printers.....
I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.....

I think half scale battery operated lights would make half scale king!

I echo the pleas...I would adore some of the more complex, detailed kits (e.g. Beacon Hill) in 1:24 scale! There are more and more unique options for half scale furniture (including kits) and deco. I would definitely prefer laser cut having worked with both.

Thanks to the folks at GL for everything they do to support the mini-obsessed! :D

While we're sending our smoke-signals to Greenleaf - I'd like to see more in the 1:144 scale. I have become totally fascinated with this scale and I'm amazed at how much can be done with it. AND - they will fit inside the 1:12 scales mansions, that are already taking up space :lol:

I think Northeastern Scale Lumber makes the 1:144 versions of the GL kits. And yes, the Victorianna is the 1:24 version of the McKinley, and we were promised it would be the first discontinued kit to be rereleased several years ago...

Yes, I have a few of those - like the Garfield. They have some beautiful little houses!

havanna holly, what books do you recommend for scale furniture patterns? I know there is a thread for this, but I was having trouble determining which books featured mostly furniture patterns.
