Dormers and Roof

Last week our area received over 12 inches of snow, 12 inches of snow for our area is very unusual. Schools and businesses were closed, and getting out and about wasn’t happening as the roads were covered in ice and snow.

I decided that I would dedicate some time to work on the miniature house, SO….. I began completing the main roof top and the gabled dormer roof tops. After finishing those area, I decided to begin giving dimension to the front exterior. The building instructions created the “brick like” trim prior to placing the trim on the house, I decided to make the cuts straight into the wood trim pieces (balsa wood), I think the end results are pretty much the same. Having completed these recent steps on the exterior of the house, the next BIG step, is to begin painting the roof and facade, OH MY, then I will begin the interior steps.

I hope to have the house finished by April, as I think the house would look wonderful as part of the table setup for the upcoming miniature show I will be participating in.

My mother in law asked me “what if someone wants to buy the house?”

My reply “That would be a very good problem to have! I will cross that bridge if that time comes!

Happy 2016!

Hello and Happy 2016 everyone!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas or your recognized holiday. My family and I were blessed to be together at our home this year to celebrate and reflect on all that we are grateful for.

This New Year certainly is beginning on a very positive note for Tiny Dwelling on Etsy. Orders continue to come in and commissioned orders as well. THANK YOU to everyone placing orders, I have much PRIDE and JOY creating all the miniatures for others to enjoy. There is an old saying, “If you love what you do, than its not called work”, that saying applies to how I feel about Tiny Dwelling.

Several posts ago I mentioned the possibility of having a feature in a miniature publication(s), well……. as promised earlier, I will share details as I learn more. This, I can tell you, the feature is scheduled to appear in the March/April 2016 issue(s). I will update the blog with all the information in the coming months, should you want to see the feature in the publication.

I also wanted to share with you the photo below, it seems that someone is beginning to decorate a dollhouse that has been stored away for sometime. Tiny Dwelling was contacted to help create a few pieces for the kitchen…. I love these creations and the sneak peek given to the customer is proving the same!

Once I am caught up to date with my orders, I WILL BE RETURNING to the construction of my miniature house.
