Lynda’s basement, laundry coming together. Sussex Crafts sinks and Airer with Romney Miniatures tiles….
Update today on Lynda’s house, well basement actually. I’m waiting for some things from Sussex Crafts to finish it off, but thought I would show you these from Romney Miniatures. If you ever need real ceramic tiles, this is the place to go, they have a huge range. This is a link to their tiles, but they do quite a range of other things. Basement photos to follow, showing Romney’s tiles…
Lynda’s kitchen photos today, with a Sussex Crafts sink (one of about three styles they do) I did repaint the cabinets, as they weren’t quite right. Marker on the brickwork shows where I will put the bread oven. Tiles from Romney Miniatures.
An update on Lynda’s kitchen today. I have to order a bread oven from Sussex Crafts Miniatures. They have to be one of the finest miniature suppliers in the world. Some of there items like working coffee grinder are the same as you will find in Queen Mary’s Dolls House.
This is them…
Renovations.. sometimes I get asked to renovate an older much loved house and maybe reconfigure it to suit the owner. This was a Sid Cooke shop, you can see before, during and after, hopefully you can tell the difference! Lots of photos, get a cup of coffee!
I am now really behind on my commissions, so this is part apology part explanation as to why. I have a lovely client at the moment who came to me with a small dolls house to renovate that had become damaged. It was mass produced and small, but her collection, which she brought to show me, was far superior to her house, even renovated it will never really be what she wants. What we ended up doing is finding her a new unique house, and making her a purpose built basement to go with it which will also allow for a garden. This will be a high end finish and give her (hopefully) the house she really would like. It puts my work schedule back 2 months, but my business is not about time, it’s about making my clients the house that they have always wanted. So I’m really sorry for anyone waiting for me, but I promise to spend as much time with you, getting your project just right. Meantime a look at my clients new basement in progress….
Finished a couple of rooms this week, the billiard room and the China room. Thought I would post so you could have a look.
It’s taken me ages to complete, but I only get to work on this at night when I finish working on other people’s houses. This hallway design has been in my head for ages, nice to see it in real life, even though it is in miniature.
Photos of the ‘Priory’ dolls house now it’s done and ready for delivery.
