Hi Dizzy,
What I see look perfect. I very much like this type of cottage with the main room having two storeys plus some stairs leading to an gallery. I am glad to hear your husband will fix everything for you towards the chimneys. Sorry to hear about your dog and I am not suprised your remaining dog misses his companion. Once you have lived with pets you know they are not simple minded "idiots" but have a very strong empathy.

Absolutely!

How lucky your hubby adn his wood-stash can come to the rescue.

I need to add chimneys to my Cumberland Castle kit (I'll put them up the back and use them as a place to put the electrics for the lights and fires).

{laugh!!}I keep telling myself that with regard to puttign guarderobes into the castle... but my mind keeps circling back to where best to situate them and how to do the shafts leading down from them so all the poo can be diposed of at the bottom.

Had a rotten week - my eyes keep leaking - but today I managed to seal the house externally ready for spackling once the electrics are in. All the doors and windows (and frames) are made and I start painting them tomorrow (nice old, faded green ..). I'm going to spackle (I love that word!) with Polyfilla OneFill, which weighs so much less than the old Polyfilla and came in a huge ready mix tub.

Also, I think I might either paperclay or air dry clay the roof. I have enough of both but want to research a bit to see which would be the best to use out of those two. I also have a stash of many hundreds of tiny roof slates I cut out of mount card a couple of years ago and didn't use. Decisions!

I have this mental vision of an old, run down, cottage full of warmth and love - and that's what I'm trying to make. Tatty outside and cosy inside


Oh and Teddy - I was reading past editions of Dolls House & Miniature Scene (digital format - much cheaper than buying old paper editions). The one for June 2013 had the how-to for making a working garderobe for a Tudor house. I have the mag digitally and can easily take screenshots and email them to you, if you don't have a copy.

That would be wonderful!

Thank you
