Whispering Brook Cottage- A Commissioned Project Dollhouse

My project this week is Whispering Brook Cottage. This dollhouse was commissioned by Beth. It's a copy of In Tatters but with different colors.
Here is the start of the house. The walls and floor are glued together.
This is the bump out addition. 
The interior is all white washed.
The beams are in place upstairs and downstairs.
The upstairs has a wallpaper accent wall with lilacs.

 Next step a few more details added. Like putting the windows and surround trim on.
 The door is soft lavender.
 This wall has horizontal siding.

 The bump out roof is on. The chimney which holds the batteries and switches is covered in concrete.

 The chandeliers are all in place.
The fireplace will have a working fire.  Next more window trims, the yards, porch floor, more siding, the back support piece.
When starting your project remember to just take it one step at a time. No need to stress out. Just take your time to plan, do one thing at a time and eat snacks!
Talk to you soon!
