Simona's house

Hello dears,


Today I finally sat down to work on Simona's house.  I opened the parcel and took a step back.  There seem to be hundreds of pieces, a real big puzzle game!

It will take me ages to finish.  First I'll just dry fit it together, then I'll disassemble and paint each piece
before I glue it in place.  I sorted the pieces, more or less, according to their function, outer walls, floors railings, stairs, etc.  Here are some pictures for you to see what I mean. There are some very puzzling
tiny pieces which purpose I don't know.  There is one page missing from the handbook.  I hope it's not essential and will cause no problem.







Before I start painting, I have to make sure I have enough paint of each color I intend to use.  It will be
difficult to match a new paint color to one already used.

It's too hot and humid to work.  I hate going out shopping on hot days.

I wonder who is, or are, going to live in this fantasy house. Have you any ideas?  I have not yet measured the two rooms to
decide if it's a half or quarter scale house.

More to come soon.....

Hugs and blessings

  1. The house is so beautiful, Drora! I have the same type of house but have not figured out at what scale it is made. Need to do some calculations. Hugs.

  3. Your already off to a fantastic start Drora! That house i do believe is between half with some fiddling. I have been meaning to pick one up myself I thought with the gothic style it would make a wonderful haunted mansion with things peeking out the windows. If you look up Fantasy Villa on google you can .
    see a bunch of them in different styles
    I look forward to seeing more! Hugs, J

  4. Thank you Jane. I looked up Fantasy Villa as you suggested and it really is a great help. The house is too small half scale and too big for quarter scale so I'll have to make the interior furnishing myself, a job I really love. hugs

  5. My, what a lot of pieces! And I know the feeling of having parts where you have no clue what their purpose might be... *LOL* But I'm convinced you will build something gorgeous in the end - whatever you decide it shall be. I think it gives you many possibilities - Haunted Mansion of course... or a Mouse House, an old Villa with many rambling plants... you will find out who lives there real soon, I have no doubt about it.

  9. Wow, so many pieces! It looks like quite a project but I am sure it will be so rewarding when complete. It is ornate in the dry fit picture you posted. I can already tell it will be beautiful.
    Hugs,

  10. Hi Drora, This looks like it is going to be a really fun project. I think the haunted house idea would be really fun for you, but I look forward to seeing whatever you decide to make. xo Jennifer
