Time for Something a Little Bit Different.....'Pumpkin Cottage'

This is 'Pumpkin Cottage', a 1/12th scale one room cottage just completed. I had such a lot of fun building this little house. It all started with the window - I bought it ages ago at a fair and when I came across it a couple of weeks ago (down the back of the computer of all places!) the idea of an old dirty cottage came to mind. I kept the cottage small so it could easily be stored away if it was to be used just as a Halloween display piece. I think it would look wonderful with some lights and a flickering stove in the corner and your homeless witch would be very happy to move in here! For sale on ebay right now.

1/12th Scale 'Beech Cottage'

This is 'Beech Cottage', a 1/12th scale house built for a customer. It has one large ground floor room and two rooms upstairs. I love that little window in the door!

1/24th Scale 'Apple Tree Cottage'

I bought a set of 24th scale windows from Malcolm's Miniatures recently and used them in this little farmhouse cottage - they are very finely detailed and very good to work with. This cottage could just as easily be at the seaside - the choice is yours!

1/12th Scale Two Storey 'Shabby Chic' Shop

This is a two storey 1/12th scale shop created from a shop front made by Tollgate Miniatures. After building the one storey shop I thought an upper floor would look nice for the next shop and would also be useful for living space. This would make a great flower shop or perhaps a little cafe?

1/12th Scale Shabby Chic Shop

I bought a couple of shop fronts at a fair recently and this is what I have done with the first one. The fronts were made by Tollgate Miniatures so they are built from beautiful quality plywood. I have added a plywood box to create a nice shop space and this is the result. A handy size for putting on a shelf or on a windowsill to display your favourite shabby chic furniture!

1/24th Scale 'Vue de la Mer' (Sea View)

This is a tiny 1/24th scale cottage recently completed. I thought it looked a little bit French in style so I gave it a French name which I hope, when translated, means 'Sea View'!
