Starting the New Project 'The Making of the Roof' - Part 1 on 'Life & Style'

Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are having a good week.

Today I will be sharing with you the beginning of the New Project or the continuation for 'The Miniaturist'. This project consists of another roombox which will go on top of The Miniaturist living quarters.

This room will be turned into The Miniaturist's Bedroom. The beginning of the project was also shared on the 'Life & Style' Tv Show on Net Tv.

This roombox will complete the whole dolls house which will consist of four rooms. The first room was the Dickens book shop. Right on top of it was The Miniaturist room and kitchen and the final room will be turned into the bedroom. As you can see the project is already found its place in my Regent Street.

At this roombox is what I consider the roof's room.  I had to work slightly different from the rest of the other rooms. I designed the walls to be slanting like a roof with two dormer windows. Once the wood was cut, I started painting the inner walls with the first coat of paint.

After constructing the walls into a room, I started working on the outside of the roombox. I used long bamboo skewers to cover the outside of the walls and roof.

Using kite paper I covered the walls with glue paste and painted the entire thing in grey.

The roof and walls were weathered using different shades of earth and natural colors.

I also added two chimneys on top of the roof which I painted and weathered.

Last Friday I got to share the new roombox with Marbeck Spiteri during the show and explained what the project will involve and how the roof was done. 

Here is the two video clips showing the introduction of the new project.

Here is how the roof looks like so far. 

I can't wait to start working on the inside of the bedroom. Keep tuned for the next update on this project.

Take Care and See You Soon.
