It is really looking good and will be looking forward to see your furniture and everything in situ. Well done.

Default 2nd Staircase

Finally got started on the 2nd floor staircase. Next step is spraying it with lacquer. I received the smoke unit for the chimney and the white poly doors. The jambs are too narrow 3/8" for 1/2" walls so instead of sending them back I'll make the new jambs out of white corian. Going to the International Dollhouse Show this weekend. Can't wait to get some ideas and maybe buy something I can't build.

Your fireplace is lovely and the stairs look really nice - like the colour

Default International Miniature Show

What a humbling experience attending this show. 7 hours of walking and my back is shot. Bought the dining room fixture from an England gent by the name of Ray. All handmade. Saw furniture pieces to $7,000, boxes to $14,000. Just incredible work and friendly people. The minature paper flowers are beautiful. Bought one of the kits to try it. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Wish I could have been there.
Ray Storey's lights are beautiful. looking forward to seeing it in place and floer kits are great fun to do. Post some pics of your haul as we all love to drool over new buys.
