My good friend Marsha asked if I could build a 1/12th scale tall and slim Dutch style house. She was keen to do all the decorating herself so I just provided the unpainted shell. I think it's possibly the tallest house I have ever built but being so slim and shallow too it hardly takes up any space. It was quite hard to pack though when it came to sending it in the post!
I bought two 1/12th scale bow windows at a fair and thought they would make excellent shop windows. This is a simple one up one down shop and the huge windows make it very light inside. I think it would make a great pottery shop or perhaps an art gallery.
Paula had just a little bit of space left in her witchy village for a small shop/cottage and this is what I came up with. I made the pointy window from scratch - not being good at things like maths and angles it wasn't easy - but I think it turned out alright in the end!
