 Did a bit more work on it today pleased how it's coming along. The only trouble I keep getting is the glue from my hot glue gun can sometimes run down wall and floors. That's the beauty of using cardboard to practice on cheap and cheerful.

 


Thought I'd have a go making a cardboard fairy tale whimsical type of house. The card boards free so why not have a practice at model making. I got the idea and inspiration from The Bentley house minis

Working on the Tree Stump






In the lounge I've made a paper mache bookcase and fixed beams under the ceiling and made a wooden floor from craft sticks which I stained with some wood stain.

I made books for the library at the front of the lounge. I also laid down some carpet.




To have more room in the kitchen I have built a pantry joining onto the kitchen. I'm trying to dress the rooms before I put on the next floor up because once the next floor goes on that will be impossible to do

The Tree Stump


I have just started work on a new house this time it's in the shape of a tree stump with lots of rooms in it which will eventually become a hotel down in the grove.
Some of the bark starting to go on the stump using thick strips of foil hot glued around the outside giving it a bark effect. 







Lots of rooms and corridors going in on three floors.
I'm using 3mm foam board which is easy to cut and then hot glue the walls into place after I've cut  any doors or windows out first. Lot's more to do.

The bunting is up and the doors are about to open and it looks like Esme will be their first customer. 


The paper shop is at one side and the post office on the other.

Esme's little mishap 

Last night down in Bramble grove they had a very nasty storm. Esme huddle down under the blankets grateful that she had her cosy tree house to shelter in. First thing in the morning she ventured out into the garden and this is what she found.


Her toilet door had been blown clean off of it's hinges. Oh dear thought Esme this is so embarrassing I must get it fixed as soon as possible. Then she remembered that Daisy the cake lady had told her that the new family's granddad used to be a carpenter well that could be just what she needed now. So off she went to see the new family in the big new house. Grandpa More was more than happy to help and it didn't take more than a few minuets and all was back to normal.



The door all fixed.


One happy Esme.
