Better photos out of doors.

This was when I realised that this house was by the same maker as my first, the scribbled-on and downtrodden
1
No original papers. I'm afraid but for £2 what can you expect?
3
so I never laid hands on original wallpaper
1
Nice old range & cooker added by me.
4
Lundby - it's a 1/16th house.
5
1
Rather a garish felt stair carpet.....
1
Big mixture of items from many years of collecting bits and poieces
5
The house is over-run with rodents

New roof and two chimneys
2
An early no 10 with "wooly" thatch effect the same as the 14 and 15.
13
Carpet tiles have been stuck very firmly to each floor.
2
New paint everywhere apart from the ceilings.
3
One fireplace has survived - but without original surround paper.
3
Electrics!!!
2
The bolt on door is certainly needed otherwise it swings inwards all the time.
0
The roof is sealed in but...
4
the wiring goes into the roof. I would mess the house up if I tried to get in. No flap at the back so I'm flummoxed.
3
Scraped all paint off windows, which need glazing.
3
I am unable to change the order of the photos but here is some progress being made
2
Tryig to use the correct brick paper, I find that Trevor's reproduction paper is printed vertically rather than horizontally, so useless fro this unless I have joins, which will not look good, so will have to find something else.
3
Beams back with matt black acrylic paint. It was impossible to scrape them back to the original stain.
5
Two sizes of shutter required..This is a BEFORE picture but I can't move it .
1
Which brick paper?
6
I think this red is too hard. I have some sheets of this for ages, and every time I think that I will use , I don't think that it is quite right.
5
Now for shutters, I must hand-paint them
7
Shutters painted and ready to be fixed on.
4
Still a long way to go. back, sides - another chimney, 4 interior doors, flooring, papers, the list is endless.
8
Ameoba paper on back of over-painted fire
3
This could be original - has anyone ever come across it before? It was behind the fireplace which had been screwed in from being in another position originally.
12
Slow. slow progress, but it's improving.
5
I never want to paper another house! I'm cheating and painted the hall and landing and will add a dado.
12
Dado  - certainly shows up a wobble in the wall!
10
Cheap furniture to customise.
6
A challenge here!
5
Dado again.
5
It's a very happy house now. Maybe it's because the Silvers live there,
5
The right hand chimney is the new one. the eggshell was hell to do and not really good enough.
7
The curtains are all from 1930s fabrics,apart from the bright pink ones. The wall papers are all Poppets,
12
Don't laugh. After several years, the brick paper has faded considerably even when not exposed to actual sunlight.
