Gnome House 1:48

Revised 1/08/2007

The Gnome House was a class that Grace took from Lady Bug, Sue Thwaite. It's 1/4" scale. This was a really exciting project to do since the gnomes have such an interesting culture. This is on project that could be expanded forever! There are always new things the gnomes are doing!

View from the side where the gnomes have used pinecone petals stuffed with moss to make a roof over the entrance.

This is looking at a cross section of the house which is built under an oak tree.

If you look carefully, you can see the pit that is below the throne. The gnomes put leaves down the pit after they use the throne so that waste decays naturally.
