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.

  1. the brick work looks realistic, have you an web site for the paper? this would save me a lot of time and money when I come to do my new dolls house x
