A 1/12th Scale Partially Decorated House

This is one of my 1/12th scale houses which has been left undecorated for the new owner to complete. I've plastered inside and out and have painted the roof but otherwise it is a blank canvas.

1/12th Scale 'Nettle Cottage'

This is a tiny cottage, just about 1/12th scale, designed for the collector who is very short of space! I actually made it to sit on a window sill here at home with me but now it has gone to friend.

1/12th Scale 'Crabpot Cottage'

Just a little 1/12th scale seaside cottage - two rooms - ideal as a bait shop, a gift shop or a tiny hideaway on the coast.

1/12th Scale 'Captain's Cottage'

This was an old undecorated 1/12th scale cottage I bought a while ago and I have given it the 'Julie Bennett' treatment with plastered walls and a seaside colour scheme. This has gone to another friend.

1/24th Scale Seaside Cottage

I was asked by a friend to build her one of my 1/24th scale cottages - this is the result. It has four rooms inside which have been left just undercoated so she can decorate herself.

1/12th Scale Seaside Bungalow

A friend asked me to build one of my seaside bungalows for her for Christmas and here it is. I've left the inside plain for her to decorate herself (she is an excellent interior designer!)

1/12th Scale 'Rookery Cottage'

When I have fun building a certain house I tend to want to make another. 'Cobweb Cottage' was such a pleasure to make I just had to build another similar and luckily a friend of mine said she would like the new cottage. So this is 'Rookery Cottage' (I saw the name somewhere on my travels and thought what a good name for a dolls house it was!) I have used the egg box stone again like on Cobweb (such fun cutting out bits of cardboard!) and then 'dirtied' the plaster inside and out with various paint washes.

1/12th Scale 'Smuggler's Cottage'

Oh dear! It's December already and I haven't posted anything on my blog since October. I really don't know where the time goes.... Anyway, here is 'Smuggler's Cottage'. It is a 1/12th scale cottage and instead of plastering on the inside I have used wallpapers which I think makes it feel a bit more cosy. The weatherboarding on the front is very similar in style to cottages on the south coast, especially places like Rye where this is a long history of smuggling.
