The Floor Plan

Hi everyone - there will be a proper update soon. In the meantime, here's a shot I took while working on bedroom layouts (just so you know I have, in fact, been working on the house).

The interiors haven't been installed in this picture, but it does show the room configuration - two bedrooms on one side,  the kitchen and bathroom on the other, and a big living/dining room in the middle.

The house that inspired this project is one room deeper in real life, and the bathroom is probably between the bedrooms (I found a floor plan for a very similar house about 30 miles away, built around the same time, that has this configuration). But, this dollhouse has a fairly large footprint, and I haven't even mounted it on a base yet. Knowing I needed to keep the project a manageable size, I shrank the house's depth by several inches during the planning stages. Hence the need to place the bathroom next to the kitchen.

More to come.

P.S. I am still having issues with not being able to comment on blogs (and often have trouble reading a select few of them). If you are on my blog list and have updated in the past few months, I am definitely keeping up on your work.
