So this may be old news to you by now, but while on hiatus, I caught wind of this challenge. And let me tell you how much it made my day. Oh my, how I love thee, dear Emily! Basically summarized, my pretend BFF, Emily Henderson conjured up a miniature dollhouse-along competition. As you know I have a dollhouse project but have been slacking for some time now. Well, this is perfect opportunity for me to finish up this endeavor. And thank goodness that I already have a shell in place. Otherwise, it would be an even bigger (tee-hee) race to the finish line.
So I feel a status report is in order. Currently, La Petite Maison, is 60% finished. How did I come up with that percentage, you ask? Well I figure that the exterior was 50% and I have already started to finish out some of the interior. But the interior partitions are non-existent. To be honest, I haven’t decided if I want an open concept with columns or traditionally separated spaces with demising walls. The stairs is another problem. The oddly-planned stairs went right into the living room, leaving little space for actual living. And the banisters are ridiculously out of scale. I simply could not install as-is. I really was avoiding making a staircase from scratch but it seems inevitable. Huge project, I know (lol).
To keep myself on schedule, I decided to create a timeline where the completion date is December 15.
Phase 1-Interior Buildout
*build interior partitions with selected finishes
*design stairs and build
*install millwork (kitchen)
