While I’ve been offline the last month or so, I completed another quarter-inch scale dollhouse (almost completed, that is). This is the Nob Hill from Suzanne and Andrew’s Miniatures (click photos for larger versions):
This cute little house caught my eye when I saw in on Suzanne and Andrew’s website a while back. They made a limited number of these (I believe) and have since discontinued it (it was available for a very short time only).
I liked the colors and especially the tower! The tower is 3D printed out of resin–I added the paint. The detail is amazing.
I couldn’t really see the interior on the website, but when I started to put the house together, I really liked it too. It’s done in Arts and Crafts style and colors, with the doors, wallpaper, flooring, windows, and transoms with stained glass included.
The house is open on the right and left sides, rather than back or front, so the rooms can have a more realistic placement.
Entrance hall with stairs. The open door leads to the living room. Closed door on left leads to the kitchen.
This will be the kitchen, in the back of the house. The door facing us leads to the dining room. Door on right to entrance hall.
The living room with front picture window. Open door leads to entrance hall.
The Dining Room (or I might make it a second parlor or a music room). I like the wide Arts and Crafts / Art Nouveau room divider.
The living / dining side of the house.
Upstairs, seen through the back, is a large room (bedroom), with a smaller room in front of it (with the windows) and a room on the left, which will be the bathroom.
You can see by the dangling wires and gaps in the walls that I’m not finished yet. I have to furnish the top front room before I glue on the roof and connect up the wires. I’ve been busy making structures, not furniture, but I’ll have to switch gears before long and furnish these houses!
When I get this furnished and lighted, I’ll do another post.
I’m really enjoying smaller, quicker projects after two years on the Beacon Hill!
I have more kits to put together, then I want to start designing some small houses and room boxes to showcase some furniture and things without homes.
