Built in the 1700's and renovated many times. Bare windows emits morning sunlight as evening cast shadows. Electricity is non-existent. Air in old pipes spit and spat when the taps turn on. Doors and windows dont open or close properly. Trims along with cabinets get stripped, repainted and reused. Appliances work sometimes. Tenants are happy as they enjoy life!

NEW YORK APARTMENTS!!
Thank you for the lovely comments.
I wish that I could talk to you through
my blog but there are some things that
our bloggers will not let us do. And that
is one of them at least for my blogs.
I also have problems putting links on my
But I guess we cannot have it all.
Anyway I would like to thank all of you
for being my followers and putting up with
me. Allergy season approached early this
year so it is playing its toll on me already!
Giveaways are coming really soon!
As you can see I have been busy!!
My husbands work friend BILL KING built me
a 6 story apartment building!! Each floor is
8.5 inches tall making each apartment about
200 square inches which in the real world is 200 square feet.
With the scale of 1 to 1 ratio. That is still a little apartment.
I painted the outside
a nice light to medium brown color.
Everything inside is white. However I will
be painting some of the rooms colors and
maybe just a little bit of wallpaper, but not
much. There will be a lot of shabby chic apartments here.
The front door is on the bottom
floor on the window side but I am sorry
that I did not take a picture of that.
You will see it later when the windows
are painted and glued in.
My hubby cut out all of the small and large windows.
Each apartment has a big bay-window that
will let you see much of what will be inside.
The back of each apartment will be windowless, but
I am undecided if I should put windows on the
large opening door.
I am thinking about leaving it windowless also.
I want these apartments to hold a lot so they are going
to be crammed full. This building will be called
my NEW YORK APARTMENTS because I am hoping
to be able to make each apartment into 2 and 3 bedroom
units. I want to use imagination and so as not to be rude
or anything like that but most people must live in small
apartments because the rent is so high in New York.
I think that it is going to be time to change the outlook
of this blog to include the thatched dollhouse and this
building. Even with cramming lots of miniatures
into this building - I am still going to need another
