If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to, I decided to turn aside from the Beacon Hill for a rest (need it!), and do a quarter inch scale house kit I recently bought. It’s called the PetalStone from Robin Betterley.
They’re currently on the 7th cutting for this kit, and you can reserve one for a deposit: https://www.robinbetterley.com/collections/petalstone/products/petalstone-house-7th-cutting
This is the main page for the kits:
The price is usually more than I pay for a dollhouse kit, but you get everything. First, the house is large–three floors with spacious rooms plus a “silo” for a kitchen and bathroom (or anything you want to put in there), and a conservatory. Included is: spiral staircase, all windows and doors, all wallpapers and flooring, all trims, rugs and curtains, lights, lamps, and the entire electrical system, a base, and all the landscaping materials for the outside. The only thing not included are the furnishings, and while they have kits for those too, I’m going to use mostly my own furniture or other kits to do the inside.
First floor mostly done.
First floor with spiral staircase and kitchen installed.
I did go ahead and get the kitchen kit for this, as I liked it.
Outside–the silo under construction
Second floor mostly done.
Starting to shingle the silo roof.
Wires hanging down are for the bathroom chandelier–they’d be tucked out of sight.
The lights are both lamps and overhead “canned” lights.
This is a fairly big house–I’m wondering where I’m going to display it! It’s a fun project, just what I need. I’m building it as is, not much bashing, but it will be pretty when I’m done!
Then back to the Beacon Hill.
