Belated birthday gift

by brae  

Good thing Lyssa loves me, because I've been so remiss in building her birthday gift from last September.  But, she knows a lot of the things I've been going through these many months and is a true friend.  :]

She said she loved the Baxter Pointe Villa fireplace, so I sent her a gift certificate for her birthday for a custom built model.

She opted for white wood with grey tiles.  I used the usual half scale bookcases with every other shelf removed along with grey Greenleaf vinyl tiles.  The underlying structure is foam core board and the firebox is lined with egg carton brick.

Unlike the model I built for the Villa which protrudes through a hole in the wall and is housed by a chimney, she wanted a unit that would sit flat inside the house.  I left the hearth loose so she can cut it down or use it as is when she installs it in her house.  I also added a working fireplace insert (not yet wired).

She'll add her own minis, but I've placed a few of my things in for show.

Enjoy, my twin Pea!  And, forgive me the long delay.  :D

Dear Brae! It’s perfect! I don’t remember ever seeing those little rabbits and cat. They are adorable!

Thank you! The rabbits are a recent purchase from Manor House Minis. The cat is a tiny figurine I’ve had since I was a child. :D
