A new house....

Oh heavens, I did it again.
I will probably have to live outside my own house, but I really could NOT resist this beautiful house, a Kendrew!!! It is still in its original condition, but wired.
These houses are exceptionally well built and very beautiful.
It just fitted into my car and when I came home I borrowed my neighbour to hoist it into my house :-)
I will need to shellack it first before doing anything more to it, but isn't it a beauty??!!


  1. It is BEAUTIFUL Elly!!!!!! I am now very curious about the inside!!!!!!!! Love the windows.

  2. Ooh, that is lovely! :] The woodwork is exceptional.

  3. More pics, more pics!!! Please???

  4. It is a beauty, I can understand you had to give it a home!

  5. Dat is zeker een mooi huis, zou ook wel meer foto's willen zien :-)

  6. I will take more pictures later this week, promise!
    Otterine, you are right, the woodwork of this house is outstanding.The house is birch plywood, the coins and windows mahogany.
    Alas,the firm went out of business some years ago, the builder being a bit aged by then,so unless you have a lucky find you are not going to stumble upon them in the regular market.

  7. it sure is a beauty! & I can't wait to see what you do with it.
    hugs K

  8. Oh wow! That IS a beautiful house! You're going to have so much fun with that one - can't wait to see what you do with it.
