1/12th Scale 'Barnacle Cottage' and 'Harbour Cottage'

Here are a pair of houses (semi-detached) Barnacle Cottage and Harbour Cottage, built specially to fit in a small space. My customer wanted two seaside cottages but only had a limited amount of space to squeeze them in so we decided that semi-detached was the way to go. Inside there are two rooms plus an attic in each cottage but no stairs - just false doors on the rear walls to save on space. It's a shame Sam and Miss Marple didn't notice these properties in the Estate Agents window - they would have been ideal for them!


  1. That is a great size. I love the soft palette you use on all your houses. They look adorable. Thanks for coming over to my blog and entering my giveaway. Good luck!

  2. Great idea!! Sam's a bit miffed he missed them!

  3. They are fab what a great idea to save on space!!!

  4. Wow Julie you seem to have made a lot of cottages recently. On average how many do you make a month?

  5. Hi Everybody!
    Thank you for your kind comments on my cottages. It usually takes me about ten days to build a house - a bit more if it's bigger - less if it's a tiny cottage. I just can't stop building!!!!!

  6. I really love those, they are very cute! Any chance you could post a pic of the inside as well please.

  7. If water freezes, make sure you provide them with fresh water, and more importantly, check the insulation on the chicken coop to make sure it is adequate.
