I'm currently experiencing technical difficulties with my computer and thus can't post pictures of anything I've been working on lately. While my computer guru (aka my husband) sorts through my computer's various issues, I thought I'd post a few pictures of my inspiration for Myrtlewood. Click here to read the rest of this entry... Oak Alley Plantation, Vacherie, Louisiana: Houmas House, Darrow, Louisiana: Dunleith Plantation, Natchez, Mississippi: Drayton Hall, Charleston, South Carolina: Belle Mead Plantation, Nashville, Tennessee: I have long been enamored with these southern beauties. When I decided I wanted a dollhouse, I knew it would have to be a southern plantation house. There just aren't many kits out there in this style, though, which is one of the reasons I decided to build my own. My plan is for Myrtlewood to look very similar to the first three homes pictured above, except that it will have columns and porches across the front only, rather than all the way around (wrapping them all the way around would greatly impede access to the interior, unfortunately). At some point, I'll try to post the plans I've drawn up.
Hopefully, my computer will be "cured" in the next week or so, and then we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming.
