Dollhouse Miniature Front Porch pt 2





I want to start by saying I am sorry I was out of frame and that I didn't get much done this week. I have still not been feeling great after being sick last week.

So this week we are going to add the roof to the front porch. I almost forgot to get this done before I added the siding.

For the roof area we only need to cut 4 rectangles of foam core.
1 @ 12 ½” by 6 ¾” (roof)
1 @ 12” by 6” (ceiling)
1 @ 12” by 2” (back)
1 @ 6” by 2” (sides) – this is cut on the diagonal to make 2 pieces

We will also need a scrap of foam core to fill the area between the roof piece and the front wall of the “house” I decided to do this this way so that the roof could have a flat area where we join it to the house. It should all make more sense as we move work on the area in coming weeks.

I know I said I was going to trim the roof piece along the side but I totally forgot until I had it glued to the house. It looks fine so if you want to trim yours go ahead but it will work either way. I blame the mistake on my cold medicine and the fact there was about 5 days between when I filmed the parts of the video.

Next week we should be moving on to the siding. Let me know if you would like a video on different options for dollhouse siding.
