We’ve had an unplanned absence over the last week as Mary’s move back to Michigan and the holidays have consumed most of our time.
Now that the holidays have passed, I can finally most about my main project over the last month or so, building an A-Frame dollhouse for my niece.
I used all recycled wood from The Architectural Salvage Warehouse of Detroit and started with cutting out pieces for the frame. I also decided to hand-carve the roof shingles so it had a sort of sketched and rustic look to it.
For the interior, I left the downstairs the natural wood and just added a door frame and hung a small picture. For the upstairs, I glued some paper down for a faux-wallpaper. I also bought a little bunny family to go in the house.
For the outside, I added a porch, door, some frames for the door and window, and some landscaping. I decided to make the porch and frames a forest green.
It’s still unfurnished, but her birthday is just around the corner in February.
