GRACE'S PROJECTS

Half Scale Farmhouse - In progress (2014-2016)
Grace has been working on this farmhouse for several years. She added an addition on each end of the house. For years she's been saving
Bespaq half scale furniture for this house. The photos below show the house in progress. The next, are when Grace needed
to figure out what wallpaper to use so she put furnishings in the rooms to help make the decisions. All the rooms have not been papered.
 Grace has used both half scale and quarter scale papers in this house. The newest photos of the rooms are at the bottom in a new table.
Update: the house is now lighted, papered and floors are in. New photos below. Still working on landscaping the outside. Those photos will be posted last.

So okay, I had a major set back when I went to put the lighting in. I had two shorts in the system. Found one but could 't find the other. Had to get help from Jim. In the process, I had to pull out all the wallpaper and flooring that was already installed. Now, I've got the lights in and working and all the floors and paper are now back in. I changed wallpaper in a couple of rooms.

Ann Bramlet and I are thinking about offering a deck kit in half scale. Will let you know if that happens. Below are photos of the individual  rooms from the top to the bottom of the house.

Once the house is furnished, I'll have updated photos of furnishings and landscaping..


I changed the color of the floors and counters in the bathroom on the third floor.

This Half Scale Baby House is in the living room of the farm house. I posting photos of it up close and personal so you can see that it is furnished. Getting furnishings that small was a challenge!

These two photos are a little larger than I like to use on my site, but think they need to be larger so you can see the details
Be sure to click on the Half Scale Baby House and look at the details.
Grace made the blue dining room floor, one strip at a time. Put is down on Stick Um then used the other side to hold it down. Dining room 1 in HS Farm house
