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.
