The Scandinavian house has been put to the side over the Christmas break, and for the moment I have been playing around with the new eBay house. I started by removing some wood to make holes for the stair case and a door upstairs and downstairs.
I bought a pre-milled stair case kit for the house, but decided to use different balustrading (of much better quality than the kit provided).
This took quite a long time and was quite tedious!
The result was pleasing though.
I think the stair case has improved the over all look of the house a lot. It seems to have transformed it from a child's toy into a collector's miniature already.
Tomorrow I will go out hunting for some nice wall paper and do a little more research on American Victorian style as I want the house to look authentic.
