Project Information

Suggested to post here by Bushmaster.

Made from lot of rescued wood and new plywood. Special made for wife's great niece.
Sizes are-tall-16"-wide 20"-& long 24".
It does open and has corral fencing too. I discovered I do not like fencing; even in miniature - at all!

Was still a challenging and fun build. Pattern-very roughly followed an internet picture. A whole lot of T & E-also.
I do have 2 smaller ones in mind to build-they will be a lot easier. Not as many-OOOPPPPSSS!-Do overs!

Fence upright posts are $tree sticks, they seemed to work well.

AS always-Ideas-suggestions and CRITISM are all welcome-that is HOW I improve.
I finally found my photo program to let me shrink my cameras pictures again!

What a wonderful gift!!! I can imagine all the hours she will enjoy playing with this. That fencing looks great but I bet it was a test of patience to build. Like the pattern with it closing to keep everything together.

I almost feel like I'm on a ranch. Nice work and impressive fence. I remember making ladders for a fire truck and it drove me crazy.

Well done! A country girls version of a doll house 8^)

Next up you need to get carving some barn critters and bale some lawn clippings for the hay loft!
I'm seeing a setup for a birthday/Christmas gift installment plan.
