New project

Hello dear followers!
In this post I want to introduce you to my new project. It is a special order and I believe it would be a special experience :) 
Already half a year has passed since I was asked to make a micro house that will be a copy of Jill Barklem picture from her Spring Story. Now, finally the time has come and I am ready to try :)
Here is the picture of a house: 
I will try to make my micro house as close to the picture as possible :) 
I know there's already a house in 1/12th scale by Maddie Brindley( and watching it helped me a lot. However still my micro house would be different. 
I made a plan in s programm called SketchUp and now starting to bring it to life. I'll be posting my progress here, room by room. So, anyone who likes to watch the process is always welcome! I am happy to receive your comments :)
The house will have 10 led-lights (one in each room)!
Here's the first and the smallest room (well, you can't actually call it a room.. :) 

And a bit of process: 

Ah, I forgot to mention the scale. It is approx. 1/250 - the size of the door is 7mm
I decided to make printable stone floors (usually I am against printable flooring) because in such tiny scale any real cracks in plastic stones would be too much anf look unnatural. 


  1. Oh my... I just LOVE Brambly Hedge books!!! So I'm sure to come and visit to see how you get on with this :)
    Thanks for the fab link to that 1:12 scale house - I've seen it before many times, but still I fall in love with it time after time.. Oo, how I wish I had at least half of the talent to make something as awesome as that..
    Your work so far look amazing - I can't even vision how small it is - I know I could never do something so tiny - boy! You're talented!
    So far so good... Can't wait to see more! (^^)
    Hugs, Irina

    1. Hi Irina,
      thx for stopping by :)
      I have never read the books, but when I googled pictures by Jill Barklem I fell in love with them as well :)
      I think if this project turns out good (I will do my best!) I will probably make more other houses by these pictures :)

  2. WOOOW Daria, what a challenge and what a fantastic project/commission, congratulations :D! I'm sure you will create this tree house in that scale, you have the talent and the skills for it! These rooms are already wonderful, even without the furniture and rest of the decoration ;)!
    Thank you for sharing the link, it's is unknown for me so far.
    Hugs, ilona

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Ilona! Indeed, that is a challange! The scale is very small and I will propably need to thin down every piece of wood to make furniture, because the wood I have (0,8 mm thick) is too thick :)

  3. Un difícil y magnífico proyecto, seguiré los avances. Un saludo, Eva
