The Duesbury Modern Miniature House

The World of Miniatures is an interest that grows expedientially. It is good finding like minded people on the weird wild web. I am currently designing a Modern Miniature House called "The Duesbury" using a combination of Vectorworks, computer drafting, MDF material(now perhaps plywood) and CNC Routing. This house seems to take the same time as a full sized house like ones built on 'Grand Design'. I will display the progress of the new house soon.

It all takes time

I have got the miniature house to this stage and of
course the to scale bed in the top floor looks too big#%*. I had made a prototype modern chandelier for the foyer but it is also too big as I designed it to fit the space when we thought to remove the foyer ceiling/floor, but now we are turning the upper floor into a studio (arty types). Also as I put the house together I forgot to check for squareness and when I put the right wing on the main, there was a need for adjustment to fit everything nicely. So for the novice(me) check for square when glueing.
Some of the furniture I make but some we are getting from one of the well known miniature bloggers.I will say who when we get the items.
At least the wiring is in. I am using LED as a battery pack 3V is easier than a transformer, with a tiny switches for each light.
Also I would not recommend spiral stairs in a full size house. Too problamatic geomancy wise. House now gone...


  1. It seems it is just like building a real House!!!! But maybe less trouble with permits?
    Love the green and burnt red. Are they staying? Thanks CM

  2. Argh! I feel your pain. When we were building The Antrim dollhouse, we thought the main wall was square but our work space wasn't large enough and we turned the house to glue one wall. We didn't realize it dried not square until we were trying to get the second floor in and then it was too late. So many unexpected things when you're building. The progress looks great. Good luck! :D

  3. Thanks for the empathy MD,
    Maybe somehow we could post somewhere to everyone of us about the importance of the square and the neet for the square
