There are so many great details of this build, and even more that I didn't get shots of. Big DSLR's take fantastic photos, but they aren't so great for getting into dollhouses. :) I'll try to borrow my son's camera and get some shots...
The bathroom in this house is the smallest room I have ever worked with! The walls are made from scrap wood from the pier kit and matboard. The door is two layers of mat board. The toilet in here is borrowed from Mt Ollopa. I used it for staging and then totally forgot to get another one... Good thing the Lodge isn't booked right now! The mirror is made with real mirror glass that I got from Michaels. It's a 2x3 section, and the frame around it is made from card stock. A few well placed layers of card stock and some wood glue and Vanilla paint by Americana and I got a pretty great mirror for above the sink.
I have been spending too much time with Brae! I event took the time and effort to make a drain pipe for the sink. I used a long hollow jewelry finding, heated it up and bent it until it had a shape I liked.
The kitchen turned out better than I could have hoped. That little sliver of light at the roof seam bothers me, but there seemed to be a lot of trouble for people getting the roof on. The cupboards in here are a mix of cupboards from a purchased set, Michaels hutches and an oops order. Teehee. The little shelves that are below the working doors there were meant to be kitchen counters....I ordered them to make my life easier. One was to be the kitchen island and the other was going to be a __________ in my other build I have going on (CC for HBS). I didn't pay close enough attention though, and ordered them in 1:24. So, improvisation!! All the dishes have been accumulated over the last 3 years here and there...
This trash can here is nothing more than a mouthwash cap! I took and old rag and rubbed Bittersweet Chocolate all over it and then cut the corner off a black garbage bag to make the liner. :)
I ordered this mug holder from HBS. When it comes to you, it's a horrid brass finish. Blech. So I spray painted it with the same blue as the bathroom sink. :) MUCH better!
This shot is from early in the build, before the roof was on. But I wanted you guys to see that the back finishes it off. I made the frame for the large mirror in the same fashion as the bathroom one.
One of the other things that will get a construction post is this fan light. I made it from scratch and it is so cool. :)
More pool goodness!
Made drains around the porch using parts of the latice fencing.
