I have picked a range hood style, probably the most difficult decision that kept me from progressing. Mainly because I wanted a cove or mantle above and therefore needed to extend the width of the room. Oh yes! Another 3 inches added to the right side of the house!
The room has become massive, but I keep telling myself that there will be more options for the scene and photographing different angles. ;) The cabinets fill 16" x 17" of space and this excludes the fridge and breakfast nook!
Adding the trim:
I'm using a combination of 1/16 and 3/32 basswood which is nice and easy to work with and means that the hanging cabinets are light.
While building I found the best way to visualize the space and the style was to add some accessories and blur the background. Kind of like squinting and pretending its already there ;) I do love these new candles by Handley House I got from the Little Dollhouse Company, I'm so excited to decorate.
My next post will have some pictures of the finished mantle and hopefully the oven wall complete. Until then...
