I have settled on a new project! I was thinking of a few different houses and decided on this one:
It's a photo I found on Pinterest. I love the simple and clean style of it. Although, I feel like my little cottage should be light gray. We'll see!
So I took out my Primrose kit by Corona and got to work!
I took the side without any cutouts and drew out my plans for 3 windows and one front door.
Then I took the original front piece and I cut the "window" the same size as the original "front door". This will now become 2 floor to ceiling windows.
And the other peaked piece with 1 window cutout will become our back support. I drew a 1" perimeter and will cut the middle out so you can access the interior yet still have a strong support for the roof.
For the other side(opposite our new 2 floor to ceiling windows), we are going to use the attic floor.
To make my cuts, I'm using my new Dremel Trio Kit. It does take a bit of practice to make straight lines. But if you go a bit off course you can sand your way back to a decent looking cut. So don't worry! This is a cottage after all and it really adds character to have little mistakes.
Off to make my cuts! More instructions tomorrow.
And I've launched my new site: www.cinderellamomentsrealestate.com
It will be a blog filled with interesting homes, tips and just overall pretty photos that have to do with houses. Maybe great inspiration for your dollhouses?? I put a little follower button on the sit. You are all more than welcome to join me there! It's a little lonely right now with 0 followers. LOL! Again it's
Hugs all around!♥

Congratulations whit your new blog.
Hi Caroline, I am curious how the house will look like, I'll follow your progress.ReplyDelete
Congratulations for your new blog, the pictures of all kind of houses/cottages are beautiful. There is so much inspiration to find if you know where to look...;)
Coincidentally, I have two kits of Primrose to be built in these days: one to be attached to my own cottage, and the other to be sold (in Europe is very difficult to find kits of Corona Concept and I think that someone will find convenient to buy one of these small dollhouse)
I thought I would not make big changes to the structure, so I'm really curious to see the developments of your work :-)
Congrat for the new blog :-)
