Part Three... Good News....

Got the long awaited phone call yesterday.... my 'room' will be arriving on THURSDAY! Then a few days after that that erectors will arrive and it will only take one day to put up! YES!!!! Question.... should I book the electrician  now or wait until next week? If I book him now and the room/erectors might not turn up.... or wait and the electrician might be booked out???? I think I'll phone him and maybe sort of book him???LOL
Better get going on ordering some damp proofing and the insulation. My car is booked in for a service on Wednesday and I was going to a DIY store while I wait anyway... so now I can buy and not just look! Will also look for more wallpaper samples, dad hates it when I do but the stores don't object and it's not like I don't spend a small fortune on other stuff while in there!!!!
Might look and see if they have the heater I want while I'm there as well?
Oh, and lighting and floor coverings and perspex and ....... Yeah, I will need to make a list! LOL

This is the sort of garage I'm buying but as I said before without the garage door.... or the window there will be a side door though. It will measure 16'6" x 12'6" so not a bad size.... Oh, and it's 8' high.

Three posts in three days.... a record for me! Well apart from when I did Dolly Cold Turkey... then I posted EVERY day for ???? I think it was about 200 days.... a long time anyway!
 But this time I will only be posting when I have news....or progress to report! (most days knowing ME)
It would be nice to know if people are finding this interesting so please comment.... or click on the 'follow' button thingy! I guess it will be more interesting once I start building the houses, stores, etc.

Part Two.... Rooms With No View....

WARNING..... 92 pictures! You might want to make a drink before viewing!

For the last few weeks/months I have been buying foam-board/core in readiness for the new TOWN! Yes, I say town as it's going to be just that and I will list what this town will have later but for now we are talking foam-board/core.
Anyway rather than cutting up loads of boards we are going to make the frame work to fit the boards...mostly!
So the houses will be approx 24" deep and 34" long the height is 17" all houses will be have four floors, there will be FIVE houses this size.
As you can see from the following pictures  this will give plenty of scope for one, two or even three rooms on each floor.
As the tittle hints I have only covered some floors and side walls as yet. The walls at the back will need windows and sometimes doors, plus if the floors are divided the the wall coverings will differ.
I was going to just take a few pictures to gage size and added Emma for scale.... but as always I got a little carried away!!!! To those that know me this will not come as a surprise... those of you new to my BLOG and who have yet to visit my site it's me... get used to it!
My Site just in case your interested is this houses my doll stories...The Priors plus a load of guff about me, my family and my cat Godfrey! these quite a lot about dolls too!
OK, so back to a 'few' pictures.....

Love this paper it's all glittery!
