Doll photostories present a multi-faceted creative challenge. One is author, producer, costumer, cameraman, etc. It's sort of like being a one-man band. lol I use 1/12 scale because of size and financial restraints.   Hope you will have as much fun as I'm having.  Any comments or suggestions; contact me at: skylark@pesky-eskie.com

Back to dolls, stories and structures.  I'm going to be building a new doll set.  So, the first item is a good floor plan.  I need a set that looks real, is workable, and can be easily photographed.  I'm no expert. LOL!  Well, this will give you an idea of what I'm trying to do.
Okay, the ribbon lines represent the walls. The whole house is 40 inches by 30 inches.  The floor plan is of an actual bungalow, built for my Great Uncle Cooper and Great Aunt Edna.  I've always thought that it was a great floor plan for a small house.  It makes the most of a small space by being efficient.  There was, and will be, a garage on one side but I'm not going to build that yet.  The basement and back yard are accessed through the garage.  Again, that's not a high priority.  What I need most is a workable doll house/set.  If this works out well, I can make other units, like the backyard and front yard.  Assuming this one works out.  We will see.
A nice cup of tea makes everything seem better.  There will have to be changes made but it does look good.  A break from shifting furniture and house planning will sharpen my mind and make it easier to think of all the things I should have considered before.  Things like windows and walls and doors. lol.  It's going to be a bit drafty living in this house this winter if I can't get the walls up.
Office and bathroom.  Some changes will be made but this is a beginning.
Parlor and bedroom. Okay, I'll be modern and say living room and bedroom.  Looks pretty good.  Well there are no walls windows or doors yet but the furniture all fits into the designated rooms.  The artistic touches will come later.
