Follow the building progress of my Mountfield dolls house from the Dolls House Emporium.

This is my second dolls house; the first one was built from a cheap kit bought from Ebay and completed about eight years ago. Although my friends enjoyed poking their noses in through the windows to see what was inside, I just had a feeling I could do an awful lot better.

This is house number two; my attempt at improving upon house number one. I hope you enjoy it.

Please feel free to leave a comment on my blog if you wish.

It's Not Balderdash - It's Pebbledash!

Having bricked the porch and the lower half of the front of the house (another six hours!) I pebble dashed the upper half of the house.
The pebble dash is made from white paint with a dollop of PVA glue mixed in and then model railway "ballast" mixed in and sort of stippled onto the wall until it looks right.

I wondered what you used to get the effect - it is perfect. Another great job.
