I am always intrigued by how you decide on the layouts for your builds, particularly because you often alter the original structure into something different. These pictures are a great way to show how you go about it, and what you need to think about from the start of each project.

I can’t wait to see Gustav’s version of the dumbwaiter!

And yes, that bed and the bedding are just lovely!

Love your bed and the idea of it left naked with the linen piled on the end is a good one!
I also admire the convenient bucket on a pulley which makes perfect sense with the ladder.

That bed is beautiful, I think you’re right about a front window, any sort of shape behind the sails will just be so busy that you won’t enjoy looking at it.

Love that corner shelf, it’s just beautiful, between the finishes and the detail…

Hi Brae. Great finds from the show. I got to visit the three shows this year as well. I remember seeing the basket of clams and wondered if I could use them in my projects.

It was great seeing all the fabulous vendors, meeting new friends and buying great minis and kits. Hope to get back there in the future.

Story time! :D
I love how this is coming along. Stained glass side windows would add charm to the second floor and could let in light too. They would go with the decor.

The bed was a wonderful find. Story-time at the mill is a lovely idea!

:)) Jodi, I would be happy to keep the minis flowing with a lottery benefactor.

Thanks, everyone! :>>

Now you’re cookin’! I wish you’d win the lottery so you could pump out the good stuff as quickly as you’ve done this week!

I love the little cart kit. It looks so true to scale! And the way you finished the cupboard is fabulous, especially the green colour choice.
It will be neat to see the effect of the blackening solution :)

A Really Terrific idea in reversing the doors so that the details were better highlighted. That’s thinking outside the box!:D

I love it! I hadn’t noticed the door look on the cupboard until you painted it…it’s wonderful. I love the delicate look of the tea cart too. Great work!

I love the colours you have chosen for both kits. The corner cupboard does look like a folded front door - very nice :0)

Wonderful! My parents always had a corner cupboard in their kitchen filled with the breakfast china.

Thanks for the encouragement. :>>

The kit wasn’t expensive, which is why I took the plunge on an iffy result. :yes:

Was this kit expensive? Some are and it’s not gratifying when they cost a lot and have broken parts. Can’t wait to see the progress.

I’m amazed at what you are able to do with the auto kits, so I’m looking forward to seeing whatever you decide to do with it (new or derelict). :D
