This is the start of my journey into miniature , how from always wanting a dolls house as a child and then seeing a very dear friends house and becoming more determined to have one. I was ecstatic that I had a Georgian house as a Christmas present from my children. I will be working on the 1:12 scale. its a very big house for a beginner in this hobby. Whilst letting my imagination run riot I still want it to be historically and politically correct. I am so very excited

External front door
OK so today I didn't manage to get to much done as I have promised myself not to focus on to many jobs at once!
so anyway after laying another row and a half of roof tiles I then moved on to the front door.
I had to file it down to fit and fix the bit that had broken off in transit. that finally done I could add the mini trees in pots that I made from air dry clay and florist moss.
I put them in place, then realised I hadn't made the porch up.So anyway this is what the front porch and steps look like at the moment.
After looking at the faces of several Georgian houses from around the UK on the Internet I then noticed that I had actually done the windows and moulding wrongly so back to the drawing board I went .
anyway after several more hours researching this is what I
have come up with so far.
I have now completed the front pathway with the coal chute .
when I have completed putting the finishing touches to the house front I will add more pictures
I still have to make the steps to the basement a side gate and the front arch.
