New Build.

Hi everyone, well as i mentioned in a previous post I've been thinking for some time now of making myself a new build that would not only accommodate items i have made for myself but also any future items which i find appealing. I've had to give this some in depth thought mainly because i have such a wide and varied taste when it comes to miniatures which i like ranging from antique to modern day items Hmmmm!! how do you construct a building where you can house such a wide and varied taste of objects and furniture...well I've come to the conclusion that what i need is a floor level for the older type objects, and then other floors to house modern day items and maybe a few older items which wouldn't look to out of place .


Well this is what i have come up with the bottom floor will house a collection of everything and anything but mainly old and unusual items, things which i find appealing and interesting, i guess some kind of antique shop  but not a shop, more of an importer or exporter of rare and unusual objects and items, while the other floors will be the living quarters and also be a mix of old and more modern day things.


I see so many beautiful miniatures made by not only other artisans but also so many of my followers which i have at some point wanted to buy but have never had the proper place to display them but hopefully now this will change. I have spent the last week or so acquiring the timber to construct it and then yesterday put it together for its first dry fit just to give me some idea of what its going to look like and I'm happy with what i see so far judging by how long it took me to construct the last room box i made this isn't going to something that i finish soon as i still want to make other pieces but now i have the shell i can move between projects and watch it progress as and when i want.
Have a great weekend everyone. Tony.

  7. What a splendid idea, Tony, this way you can display all of your miniature treasures for yourself (and others, of course ;O) and look at them whenever you want. Seperate floors is a good idea for the problem you have regarding the time periods of your miniatures.
    Looking forward to seeing it progress :)!
    Kind regards, Ilona

  13. What a big step, to actually build your own house.
    You'll see how much frustration and pleasure that will give you :).
    I hope the pleasure will prevale and wish you a lot of fun with your (no doubt to be) new addiction :D
