House vs Studio

Well the house has finally graduated from sketchbook and cardboard to foam board. Sitting at 30in x 40in and a height of 27in it has caused me a great deal of thoughtful planning and re-organizing of my studio. I had to stop working on minis and get my real-life space organized in order to fit everything in.

The house has three floors right now, and is split into two parts into front and the back, with the dining room being at the front (the centre divider wall is not shown inserted, so you can see right through into all the rooms for now).  The large space at the front middle will be the staircase which will go up three floors, and the entrance to the house will be on the bottom floor far left.

The house splits down the middle so that I am able to photograph from both sides, and making it easier to move around. You can kind of see it in the below photograph. I still need to make two bases on wheels to move around the halves.  This is where the divider wall will go.

I shopped on Ebay for the first time, I have no idea why it has taken me so long!  Regardless I bought some minis over the Easter weekend and some arrived today. I was most excited about these pillows by Gloiberry. I love the variety.

Don't you just want to jump around in them or take a nap in the pile?

I got to thinking how global my minis have become, this is going to be one well traveled house! Below is an image from the kitchen with only the Elf oven and the lines describing where cabinets will go. I'm really liking the modern industrial feel.
