Description

Overview:
• I designed and hand-crafted this O gauge & 1/4 scale miniature house.
• Materials: a variety including Bass wood, wood-reinforced Gator board, fiber clay, acrylic panes
and a simulated cedar shake roof out of textured card stock.
• Process: Stucco-like finish with corner quoins. The long wall is hand carved out of clay and
hand painted, lightly weathered and sealed. The rear of the house features a cobblestone
courtyard that was also carved out of clay.
• Size: 11 3/8 inches long by 7 1/8 inches wide and 9 ¾ inches high
(The overall base stand measures 13 3/8” by 8 ½” – see pictures.)
• Scale: ¼/O scale
• Signed and Dated, “CIRCA 1866 A Charleston Single (South Carolina)”

• Made to order
• Ships worldwide from United States

My passion is designing and crafting miniature structures representative of the ones built across the U.S. Frontier. This particular miniature house represents a Charleston Single House that is unique to the port city of Charleston, South Carolina. These one-room wide and three story high houses were designed, starting as early as 1750 because of a combination of the city’s narrow lots and the semitropical climate. They feature a full side-length porch known in Charleston as a piazza to provide shading from the hot sun. My miniature house represents the post-civil war period in America’s history and the shutters and doors are painted in Charleston Green. This dark green came about, according to local history, because of all the black paint sent to Charleston by the North after the Civil War to help in the rebuilding process. Rather than have all the trim painted black, the local townspeople mixed green and yellow paint with the black to create what became known as Charleston Green. Of course the results varied based on how different homeowners mixed their colors but they all resulted in a similar dark green color. I hope you like my “Charleston Green”.

Additional information - The underlying structure of this house is made from wood-reinforced Gator board and the wall, chimney and cobblestone courtyard were all carved out of fiber clay. Everything was done to scale – ¼ /O. The house is mounted on a display stand. While additional houses will be made in this same design, each one will be unique. Like this one, they will be labeled, signed and dated.
