Lanhardt Custom Dollhouse Finished

This is Landhardt House finished.
This dollhouse is 22 3/4" across x 15 1/2" deep x 19 1/2" tall.
The colours of the exterior are cream, taupe, white and pink for the flowers.

This was a special request birdhouse. I did not glue it down because of shipping.
The plaster has exposed bricks underneath showing through in certain spots.

I love the way the roof looks so complex. It is a challenge getting all those angles to line up!

All the colours inside are very neutral. There are walls with just plaster in case the new owner wants to add wallpaper. 

This is the living room with a working mantel. It's 10 3/4" x 7 1/4".
This addition is 3 3/4" x 8 1/4".
 The entry is 5 1/2" x 4 1/8".

The kitchen is 5 1/" x 10". It has the long wall for kitchen appliances.
The side addition here is 10 1/4" x 4".
This nook is 5 7/8" x 4 1/2".
The upstairs is 13 1/2" wide.  The room on the left is 5 1/2" x 10 1/2". The longer room is 14 3/4" x
5 3/4".

 Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this latest commission.

The Lanhardt House part 2

The upstairs of Landhardt House dollhouse is completed and we are now on the exterior.

The lights are now all connected.

I had to get my camera in a weird angle  for this shot and it distorted things a little.

 The exterior is lots of different textures. 
 There is Board and batten, siding, brick, stone, plaster.
 On this project I decided to use some sheet bricks in an attempt to keep the weight down. The house is already pretty heavy.

 The stones are carved into wet concrete.
Next, the paint, window panes, and all the rest of the exterior finishes will be put on.  The next post will show you the finished house.
