Gnome Tree Stump House

 Hi Everyone, I wanted to share my latest creation.  I was gong to take a break from building more houses since the Denver Miniature Sales Show is in September, but I can never sit still.
I had just spent 3 weeks driving and touring 3 different states to try and find a future retirement house to buy, which will be a vacation home until were ready to retire.  But I came home so exhausted after all the hours on the road and looking at house I came home and even though I was exhausted I was inspired to create a Gnome Tree Stump House.  I just wanted to share the house I just completed last week which only took me about 7 days from start to finish.  .  It turned out pretty good for all the paper pulp I used to create the bark look on the house.  I think it will take about 3 more weeks to completely dry all the way through since it is from 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick in areas. I get so involved and carried away when I am creating I again forgot to take step by step pictures. I one day will hopefully see if someone could video me so I can show you how my fast crazy building process goes.
 I ended up finding pictures online to quickly turn into Gnome artwork around the house.  Its not perfect wood frames. But I work quickly to keep my prices down.  Plus most people re decorate the interiors anyway.  I hope it inspires.  Have a wonderful month.  Stan

Room Box Store Fronts

 Hi everyone, I was inspired this past week by a picture I found of a store front that looks like it was just a room box.  I personally don't like room boxes since usually the 3 sides are plain and only the front is completed.  I also have been wanting to scale down my house sizes and try to create a room box of my own version but I want all 4 sides completed.  I fell all the sides should look nice. This is my smallest base yet which is only 10 inches wide by 10 inches deep.   I am trying to learn to create smaller versions of my work for people who don't have a lot of room in their houses.  So this Is my version of the store front I create from the inspiration picture. But I also decided why build 1 when I can build 2 of them.  They are sort of the mirror opposite of each other with just a few slight differences so they don't exactly match.  I hope you all enjoy and are inspired to create.  I just wanted to get these last 3 houses I create over the past 2 weeks posted before I head on vacation to Idaho.  Have a wonderful month everyone.  Stan
