MY DOLLS HOUSE
Here are some pictures of my own dolls house - a work in slow progress, but with some recent updates.
The house was built by Anglesey Dolls Houses (now sadly no longer trading) and is being given a Gothic theme. The plan is that eventually it will hold just about every cliche in the Horror / Fantasy genre you can think of, but so far has only a few dolls in it who tend to come and go as needed for other people's dolls houses.
|Outside view of the house. The large dragon on the roof has since flown away, but there are many other smaller ones scattered around the inside of the house.|
|Interior showing room plan. Following pictures are mostly more recent and therefore show some changes.|

I have been asked a number of times how I did the stonework on the outside of the house, so here I am happy to share:
