I took a break from The Big House to put together a quarter-inch house kit I bought from Sue Herber a couple of years ago. I love her houses–the details make them look so real.
It’s the Arch de Provance, which she has “retired” but I managed to get one before they were gone.
This is in progress, with the stonework in place. Next I “plaster” and age everything.

Two evenings ago, I opened the box of my Westville, which I purchased at a half-price sale at HBS. I looked at the sheets of cutouts and the instructions, blenched, and closed the box.
I had been jonesing to build a new dollhouse–one look, and I decided to go on with my room by room rebuild of the big house! I will do the Westville, but I will have to take several deep breaths first. After the Westville, the Beacon Hill beckons. Oh me.

In my ongoing Big House Remodel, I finished the upstairs hall. Well, finished the interior design aspects–will add pictures, rugs, other decor later. The box thing is an elevator. All is explained in the Big House Remodel: Upstairs Hall link.
