New house is started

Added a few more progress photos further down

I would like to thank everyone who has decided to follow my blog.  I love it when a new member joins, thank you all so much.

Well I have had this little kit in storage for absolutely ages and have finally got around to bringing it together.  It's a DHE kit - The Country Store (it is now discontinued).

Here are a few photos of its stages (very early stages) - I will post some more later as it is now at a stage for the best bit - putting all the personal touches in.









I want to make a little 'owner's flat' on the upper floors and a shop on the ground floor.

Still need to make some slates for the bay windows and roof and give it a name.



And here is another one that has been 'floating' around the garage for over 10 years - even the mice had moved in and piddled and pooped all over it! (got hubby to decontaminate it for me).

Now its has been cleaned up and repainted everywhere.  This one is yet another DHE kit it is Fairbanks, which they still produce - but it is absolutely huge!







And........

This is Grosvenor Hall - still to be completed but it has had quite a bit of interior work done already.

  1. I'm looking forward to following the progress of both these properties. I love watching the creation of a project right from the start.

  2. Wow! Follow with interest both, but the Fairbanks attracts my attention more because it's the kind of house that I like the most.

  3. You certainly have your work cut out for you! I love it when a project starts, the planning is my favourite part.
    I bet it feels good to have them out of the garage and finally being worked on.
    good luck
