I found the perfect location for this house - in the entryway behind the front door.
(Yes, I know the Christmas green wall color is hideous. I got an estimate to have it painted, but because it is a two story foyer, it would cost around eight hundred dollars. Needles to say, I have learned to like the color!)
I undercoated the whole dollhouse and plan on using the Victorian windows.
I am going to stucco the exterior and I have added various trim for visual interest.
I saw a "homemade" dollhouse on Craigslist for $50 and I could not resist it.
It is SOLID wood and weighs MORE than a ton. Seriously!!! This has to be the heaviest house I have ever encountered.
After doing a little research, I found out that this house is called The Amberwood, by Jacqueline Kerr Deiber.
There are a lot of rooms but they are on the smaller side.
I could see inside the front dormer windows that there was a room in the attic but there was no way to access it. I grabbed my Stanley knife and cut through the shingles. I then had to pry the front panel open as it had been nailed closed and shingled over. What a waste of perfectly good rooms!!!!! There were hinges, so it was supposed to open.
Anyway, this should be fun to renovate.
Happy New Year everybody!
If you live in the Northern hemisphere, it is winter and it is freezing COLD.
I just checked the temperature outside and right now it is 10 Fahrenheit or -12 Celsius. Too cold.
Mr Nova has the right idea - sheepskin and a hot water bottle.
I think I will curl up on the couch with him and watch a movie. Keep warm!
