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.

I am trying to design it to be flat packed so it can be sent anywhere. But as I am a neurotic, perfectionist miniature house designer/ maker. So ever time I get on the computer to tweek the plan I see something needs attention. If bought flat pack, the floors need to slide in in place and the walls placed where needed for support as in a real house. Getting the dimensions is important. Those of you who use drafting software know that near enough is not good enough. Lines that meet in normal view are nowhere near when zoomed.
Anyway the upshot is that the Duesbury is still coming and at the same time I am working on a house with a working name of Spooky House, So more of that soon.
