I kept to a palatte of greens, yellows, and rich browns so the interior would please the eye when viewed as a whole.
The original Plans for this cottage were published in The Scale Cabinetmaker
in about 1987,
by the late Helen Dorsett.
I modified the plans to make the house in 1/2"= 1' scale, and to have an open back, rather than a four-sided enclosed house.
I made many mistakes on this house, my first attempt at hollow-core construction. But such cottages are meant to look quaint and sagging!
House has four rooms (living, kitchen, bedroom, bath) and a staircase hall.
The outside stucco is art paper, finished with matte sealer.
House is hollow core construction (1/4" board studs with sealed illustration
board walls). Wiring is all inside the walls.
Almost all of the furnishings and accessories came from Mountain Miniatures, Scale Designs, or Auntie Em's (local mini shop).
