Doghouse: sometimes, when you put a miniature together, it seems to tell you a story about what it wants to be. It was that way, when I finished assembling this doghouse and was trying to decide what color to paint it.
I got a picture in my mind of a little boy with a big ol' coonhound puppy, building a doghouse with his grampa. They found 2x4's, left over beadboard, and shingles in the barn. So that's what they used. the boy finished it off by painting Fido's name on a piece of leftover board and hanging it on a nail over the door, so everyone would know whose house it was.That's been a few years ago, and the doghouse is still standing, the dog is big enough to fill it up, now, and the old car blanket Granny gave them for the dog to sleep on is now pretty raggedy looking. But the dog loves his house and boy, and they've had a good time growing up together in the country.
I designed this house from the actual dimensions of a dog house I found the plans for, just adding the beadboard siding and the name board. It's about 2 1/2 inches wide, 31/2 inches deep, and 3 3/4 high at the peak of the roof. It's made from basswood, with real dollhouse shingles. I will, if you like, make a different name sign with the name of your choice on it!
I will not be repeating this house, as aging a house requires hours of adding glazes, sanding, and then adding the detail colors such as the darker wood under the eaves where the paint hasn't faded, streaks on the roof, and a few spots of green on the feet where the wood gets damp in the rain. The old blanket was overdyed to look dirty and fringed. I will however, make the house and paint it to your chosen colors, upon request.
