1/6 Scale 2 Room House

O.K.  So I wanted to try a 1/6 Scale House - Barbie Size
There is not much out there for these houses.  Kits, almost nonexistent.
I found 1 company who makes a pretty house kit, (https://www.martindollhouses.com)   but before I spend the money for a wooden kit, I decided to make the house out of 1/2" GatorFoam, which is pretty solid stuff, this way I can make my mistakes and see if I even like doing it in this scale.

Well, I like doing it in this scale.  So here are a few pics to start......


I am going to put a porch on the side, give it a little more dimension  and  I am going to use 3/16" thick siding on the exterior to give it much more strength 


I need to figure out what I am going to do for lighting???


The floors will be 1" wide planks of cherry wood.


Next I will add a coffered ceiling to the first floor and the second floor will have higher paneling.  I think that will look real nice.......
