A Friendly Contest

While reading one of my favorite blogs I saw that there is a Undersized Urbanite Dollhouse Contest over at Little Victorian. I have seen many contest in the past, but have never participated as I didn't feel I could compete with  some of the great miniaturist out there.

This contest is different - I can build or rehab what I have without purchasing another kit. I had already planned on rehabbing my half scale Chantilly - I figured why not play along? If anything - this is just giving me a deadline to actually finish a house that I wanted to work on anyway. Something I have never done before.

This is my Chantilly before I started the rehab. She has been hiding in the closet for over a year. Something just wasn't right about this house. The exterior is adorable, but the inside...

The third floor attic space really bothered me. I am not very organized on planning things out - I tend to just take things apart and see what happens. All I knew was that third floor had to go and start an entire remodel.

The floor has been removed and the roof dry fitted to see what I have to work with.
I think this is much better.

Don't forget to sign up for my Giveaway on December 10th!
