I woke up yesterday morning and thought 'I am going to do something about my humongous villa that is taking up space in my workshop.'
I made it as a faithful copy of our old villa. This means it is sprawly, (a new word!) and can only be properly viewed from the front and the back. I got out my saw. I sawed it in half right down the side of it's passage. Ouch! This left me with a front room and the bay window, and the kitchen. Additions were required. First I added on a room for the kitchen and pantry.
Then I consulted all my books on NZ villas and decided I could do a top floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom and extend the bay windows up the front in a very (I thought) clever way. Watch this space.
Right now, I have restored the front parlour fireplace, wall papered the room and sorted the windows. I have half papered the dining room and have papered the kitchen. I have worked on a wiring plan which involves a false ceiling. So it is ceilings to do today.
All the while I am thinking, thinking. For material supplies I am recycling where I can. The rest I am going to source through In Miniature, from the lovely Jo Wells.
You are now on my thinking journey with me!
