I still need to do a dry fit to decide whether or not I'm going to do a loft or some kind of Murphy bed/sofa bed, but I think this will work. I'm going to forgo the current porch and use the entire base as the house.
I will add a deck on one end with a front door and the side where the big windows will be (like the one below).
...Of course, knowing me I will get half way into the build and decide to go another direction. I think the trick for me is not to get too ambitious or impatient.
In addition, I just bought this large lot of Bodo Hennig / German made minis off of Ebay. I actually only wanted to keep a few pieces and was planning of selling off the rest, but as I unwrapped the pieces I found that there were many more that I like and will be keeping.
Some of them are duplicates of what I already have so I will re-sell those or give some as gifts...maybe a giveaway since I haven't had one in awhile.
I'm just curious what you think if I were to reupholster the pieces that I'm not fond of...like ALL of the floral prints. Do you think that would "devalue" the pieces for those who are purists? or does it really matter as long as it is done well?
