So I’m back in town now and I’m ready to get back to work.
First, though, given that the house is going to be growing in size very soon, I realized I needed to move my workspace out of the TV room and downstairs to the dining room…
…which means if I have friends over for dinner…
…well, they’ll just have to eat in the kitchen.
Brought a bookshelf down to store my paints and supplies…and the toolbox down for my tools.
Piled the extra miniatures on the side table.
Brought the plastic worktable down.
And generally took over the entire room with the project. Luckily, I live alone here, so no one will mind.
I did, however, order acrylic sheets to create a protective box for the dollhouse. Not only will they work as UV filters, so the colors of the paints and wallpapers will not fade as easily over time, but the box will keep my dog, Cider, from any chewing temptations the house might elicit. (Unlike the previous room, the dining room has no doors, so I cannot lock him out while I’m gone.)
It will also serve as protection from dust; I spent a good hour last night dusting the dollhouse thoroughly after my three-month absence.
Last week, I also finished the plans for the second and third floors, so here are the final plans for the house (minus the front porch):
Tomorrow I start back on the nursery, but for now… good night.
