Part of the third reference sheet for Rana's cottage exterior. Some exciting finds have been added including some killer shots of how to beam the interior ceiling.
Gently back at work, I've been collecting some superlative examples of the building I have in mind over the last few days. This weekend's finds were from the vast and vastly upgraded dollhouse world online, today's added shots of chunky window casement came from an Umbria Italy property rental site. I printed out this ever-burgeoning cluster of inspiring images and wallpaper-pasted them down on another reference sheet that will hang next to the set. I'm all revved up by these.
This shot from a Greenleaf dollhouse kit builder's page made me feel so good about how I'm doing on the cottage. It shows her auditioning a certain roof line in white foamcore before she cuts one out of wood*. I felt emboldened that how I was going about building will work just fine. *note a sliver of the same house, smashingly finished, next to it.
