Here's my new little house. This was is very simple. It's a deep pumpkin color. Very fall like! I styled it after the salt box houses. I love that primitive/folk art look. It's available at my etsy shop.
The little door knob is metal. I made the door by layering planks.
I put each plank of siding on one at a time. It just looks more like a real house that way.
Here's what I'm working on now:
Those are 2 roofs of my new candy/ gingerbread houses. I'll post them as soon as they're done. I have to do candy research!!!! :D

Lynn's Miniature Custom Commissioned House
This is a house I made for Lynn, a facebook friend. She had it made for her son and daughter-in-law's Christmas gift.
It's mostly made out of paper products(cardboard). Everything is totally original. I don't have templates or prefab pieces. I just draw everything out, measure what I'd like the finished product to be and start cutting cardboard!
I start out making the floor plan. Then I stick on walls and the roof. Next I measure out the siding and cut each plank out. I do the same for the roof shingles. Next I tackle the windows. These are probably the most tedious part of the project. I actually make each little separations between the "glass". Then I use a super gloss to give a shiny look to the windows.
This was my first dog request! It's hard to see, but it's a little black dog statue. The pots have cabbages in them. The door has molding just like the real one.
The chimney and vent are concrete covered with bricks carved in.
