Finishing the Outside of The Traditional Dolls House

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend. I have really worked hard during this past week on my miniature orders, on the progress on The Traditional Dolls House and today I also started taking some points on my new project 'Pembroke Grange' which will be having a Regency Period Style.

I am pleased to say that the outside of the 'Traditional' Dolls House is complete. 

Before I left for The Netherlands, I have left this project with one side of the roof tiled and painted. Once I settled back, I continued working on the roof.

The roof took exactly 400 roof slates. Once those were fixed and painted throughout. I have weathered them a little to give the roof more detail.

The Traditional Dolls House kit never had any chimney pots just like 'Rose Cottage' but I wanted four chimney pots placed on the chimney stacks. I order the chimney pots from the Dolls House Emporium to mach the brand of the house. 

 The house was pretty much ready only for the last few details on the front of the house. 'The Classical' Basement came with decorative wooden strips to its front just to match with 'The Classical' Dolls House. 'The Traditional' dolls house never came with those strips, not even the updated kit 'The Park House'. I had two choice; one was to totally eliminate the decorative wall strips from the basement or add  the wooden strips on 'The Traditional' dolls House. You can imagine what I have opted for. 

 Indeed 'The Traditional' Dolls House adopted its new decorative wall strips from 'The Classical' Dolls House. It wasn't easy to find the exact type of wood strip measurements, like the ones that came with the basement. It was just 1 mm difference from the width and depth  but to me it didn't look neat, so I also changed the wood pieces of the basement to match with the dolls house. 

 I am very happy how it turned out. Here are few pictures of the finished 'Traditional' dolls house from the outside.

Can't wait to start adding the lights, wall paper and flooring to the house, so then little Leah can decorate it, the way she wants.

I am so looking forward to start preparing to work on my new project too. Very excited and nervous at the same time. 

Keep tuned for the next updates on 'The Traditional' Dolls House.

Take Care and See You Soon.
