Grey House



After trying to take a year off from building to take a break I made it 5 months and just had to clean up the craft room island and start to create a new house.  I found a picture of a brick house I wanted to create, then I thought I am not in the mood for making the bricks and that I haven't done a wood house in forever.  Plus, you can see pictures below when I started creating the house to match that it ended up being to big and I ended up cutting the house in half and just created a house with some of the same architectural lines of the inspiration picture. I thought it would take me forever to finish the house since I had taken so many months off but this went really quick at about 7 days.  But from 5 to 8 hours per day or more standing at the craft island with a sore back building, it became so addictive I couldn't stop certain nights and had to force myself to go to bed.  I hope this brings some inspiration to you. Have a wonderful Month.  Stan

  1. Such talent! I love your take on the inspiration picture and wish I could finish a house so quickly. I'm still working on a one room cabin with loft 2 years after starting it! Also, wish my craft area was as clean as yours! I spent three days cleaning up mine and it's still somewhat cluttered.

  2. Nice that you are back, surprised that you build a house in just 7 days! It looks great again, it is a pity that you have removed the other part, it also looked so beautiful.

  4. Geez you work fast! I love this house. Sometimes a break is needed to refresh the old creativity for sure. I do my mini's now only in work hours otherwise I would be there almost 24/7 and would obliterate both my back AND my marriage =)

  7. I just started making houses. I made a few Putz Houses out of card stock. Loved them. Then I saw a UTube video of someone making a witch house (in speedy motion). The house was much bigger so I decided to give it a try. I started about two weeks ago and still going strong. I just found your site via Pinterest. You have amazing talent. The houses are really life like. Your attention to detail is stunning. Do you use a certain type of cardboard. I am just using pizza boxes. One day I wish to create my own design. I can't wait to see your next one.
