I built my first 1/2 scale dollhouse.
I used the Buttercup kit. I made very few changes to it. I took off the front entry and made an open porch and I added a Widow's Walk on top to hide the battery and switch.
I added 2 columns and made a working door.
I used premixed concrete on this one too. I carved out little rocks for the foundation.
on the side I covered up the downstairs window so I could have a fireplace inside.
This picture makes the house look crooked! I must be living on a boat and just didn't realize it. Note to self: take straight pictures. LOL! :)
All the greenery comes from Hobby Lobby. The vines came from the garland department. These leaves are so tiny they even work on this 1/2 scale.
I used the cool battery operated lights on this house. I wanted a really crisp and clean light.
Hiding the wires is always a challenge!
I think this little box worked out great.
This house measures 5 1/2" deep x 8 1/8" across x 9 3/4" tall. And the interior is 4 1/4" deep x 7" across x 7 3/4" tall.
I also finished another project! My favorite cottage so far!! Here's a taste:
This one is a 1/12 scale and it is called Reverie Cottage. I was so excited about it that I finished it in less than a week. I will share it with you in a couple of days.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
