The Hotel and Hair Salon

I have the reception area laid out although still more work to be done

No, it's not going to be psychedelic the furniture is just for placement

 The sofa's might be staying but covered?


 Along the back wall will be a lift (elevator)


 The dining room seats 16 and serves Asian Cuisine

 The maid is listening to the days instrutions

And next door.....

 JoElle will be opening a hair salon

 No dryers or products...no flooring or wall d├ęcor

 But hay! They have a lovely floral display!

Not long now though and they will be ready to open? If only the dang workers did not want time off for Christmas... AND NOW NEW YEAR!!!! *sigh*

 close up of the mats


 Art Deco picture and four Clarice Cliff plates

 Small table, two working lamps, two Poinsettia's, three rolls of toilet paper (one is already in use)LOL and a vacuum cleaner (just needs a longer hose)
 A TON of baby clothes

 Check out those teeny tiny booties and mittens!

 Then I visited Elf (the company I went to this doll-house show to see)
 brought four wash basins with tapes and a kitchen!!!!
 I know it has a way to go before it LOOKS like a kitchen but this is what it will look like when done
Kitchens cost £75 flat packed this includes all the stuff needed! ELF

Conundrum Update....>>>

In bed last night I had an 'epithany' moment!LOL (Yes, I dream dolls) I wondered how it would work if I put a patio in that dark back area? The bathroom could go next to it maybe?
So will a 'glass' wall between the two buildings looking out onto a patio and the bathroom next to the patio?  I thought the side wall of the bathroom could be 'frosted glass' this would still allow light into the bathroom....would this work?
Well, yes and no! The design looks good and I like it BUT it does make the rest of the apartment a little small?
Then...... Ding Dong... anyone home? Why not swap the Apartment's in the corner with the hotel next door? If I no longer need to fit a kitchen, living room and bedroom in .... just the bedroom and a sitting area YES! Yes, it works!

Design Conundrum???

 So I've moved on to building the apartments in the adjacent corner. Trouble is how do I make it work?
 Thing is the apartment streches into the corner
 So how do I make it work?
 Open plan is a given
 But the bathroom?
 At the front? No, this blocks out the kitchen!



 Along the side? Maybe?

 In the middle? Might be possable?
 Would make the living area small?
 I can take the side wall down for access to the bedroom.
 This is looking like the best floor plan
