Thank you !
The Kendrew was about the last from this firm I could snap up before the firm went out of business ( as I have been given to understand ). the houses are really beautiful , well - built ( though HEAVY !) . I am still working on it.
It is standing on a verrrrry sturdy coffee table I bought for it to stand on- and let the hulks who broght the table in, put the house onto it - I can't even get any movement into it .... Sad Very Happy Very Happy
You can see more pics of it here : http://s12.photobucket.com/albums/a246/ellyandyael/kendrew%20house/

Cheers,
Elly ( my sig line has gone out of business again... No No )

Elly they are wonderful. I have a Victorian villa by Anglesey but it is not finished and definitely does not look as good as yours. Thanks for sharing your photos.
Cheers Linda

Hi Elly

I am new to forums and I have been looking at your photos of your houses and am so impressed, if I can create a house anywhere as nice as your Kendrew house I will be extremely pleased with myself. Can you tell me about the marble looking staircase and doorframes. Did you make these yoursel for buy them from a retailer.
Thanks
Janine

Janine , sorry only responding just now, but I was busy with lots of things Very Happy Very Happy ( went to the Soest fair on Sunday and had to recuperate yesterday )

The marble in the hall in the Kendrew house are simply plastic, the self- adhesive kind you can find in DIY and household stores.
I did not do that part myself; I bought this house second- hand. the previous owner had cut tiles from marble-clad cardboard.
The stairs were painted in a marbleizing effect ( which is very easy, really. Just use a plastic - type undercoat in white and then start marbleizing the usual way. It looks spectacular ).
The doorposts were also marbleized by painting.

Hope this helps !
Cheers !
