81, rue du College


Almost finished.... The house has now a roof and two chimneys. It was a bit time consuming to cut the slates from light cardboard and to glue them but it was worth it. I used my old technque for the chimneys.
When the temperature cools down a bit, I will paint the roof. Thailand is going through a heat wave and everyday the temperature is above 40 degree Celsius! Sometimes, 42, 43... needless to ssay I can't work outside as usual or paint. The paint dries too quickly so  I'll wait.

The weathering is done but not finished either.

I have started the interior with the Parlour or Salon in French. I had found a print on a flea market in France, I used Photoshop and created the wallpaper.
Of course, Fifi, the #4, wanted to have a nap inside the new building...

The paper looks quite nice. 

As I don't have much furniture I borrowed the furniture from the Villa to take some pictures.

The floor is made from simple pine flooring I get from minimumworld. Here is the link

I'd love to use Brodnax parquet but it's over my budget !Hopefully one day.... The problem is that in Thailand I can't find thin, plain strip of wood I could make a parquet with.

I framed some family portraits too. For once I hang them with strings on each side. It looks good.

and too more...

And one above the "semainier" high cabinet with drawers,

Now the Mansard roof and the two chimneys

Of course, the roof and the chimneys need to be weathered.

Now night can fall...
