This little round structure is a handmade and hand-painted miniature, HO scale building that is meant to be a charmingly simple and austere reminder of the necessity for solitude and for inner peace within your daily life.
Fashioned after the old stone windmills found in many French villages, this little hermitage cottage windmill is hand textured and painted in traditional stone and terracotta colors and artfully "weathered".
This particular version of our miniature hermitage windmill features handmade wooden sails for the mill, a gabled roof with terracotta tile and mossy accents. The wooden door is adorned with wrought iron accents.
The sails of the mill do not turn. They are permanently affixed as opposed to the two piece construction of our larger windmills.

The Miniature Hermitage Windmill stands 3 1/4 inches tall, 2 inches wide and the cottage is 1 1/2 inches in circumference.
This design is inspired by the simple yet beautiful stone structures I discovered on my first trip through the rural and farm regions of France many years ago. Growing up in big cities on the East Coast where everything seemed so obstructive, I was completely taken with the organic feeling of these buildings. Due in part, I am sure, to their age but also to their simplicity, the combination creates an aesthetic that makes it seem as if they have simply sprung from the earth.
Round buildings such as this were common as mills and windmills as well as the towers of larger structures and even as a dovecote or pigeonnier.
This little building can be used as a personal reminder upon an altar or a mantle or, since it has been intentionally constructed at HO scale size, it can be used with other buildings in the modeling of HO scale railroads and scenes.
“I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind”
