1/12th Scale 'Driftwood Cottage'

After my experiment with brickwork on my last house I decided to go back to the tried and tested plaster for my latest seaside cottage. This little 1/12th scale house would make an ideal home for a fisherman or it could be a holiday let or perhaps a seaside tearoom/gift shop. A great way of making the summer last that little bit longer if you add this to your collection!

1/12th Scale 'Keeper's Cottage'

I've always loved brick cottages but found it hard to make one in miniature because the brickwork is so difficult to do realistically at 1/12th scale. I found some fantastic embossed paper/card at the York Fair and decided to try it out on this cottage - I'm really pleased with the result. I think it looks like the sort of cottage a gamekeeper might live in or a farm worker. There are lots of cottages like this dotted around the Cheshire countryside.
