This is the largest of the homes Mickie had built. It stands 7 ft. 6 inches tall, 5 ft. 8 in. wide and 28 inches deep.  Constructed of birds-eye maple and black walnut woods.  All flooring is hand-made.  Each piece was cut individually and laid by hand.  See Building the Houses page for up close photos.

 

Interior rooms are decorated in the theme of the grand Victorian lifestyle. Each room is lined with vintage wallpaper and decorated with Mickie's favorite antique miniature pieces she collected and saved over the years.

This second house Mickie had built is approximately 4 ft. 8 inches tall, but it sits atop a matching table 25 inches in height. Thus, overall height is about 7 1/2 feet. It is 4 feet 4 inches wide and 27 inches deep.

 

The second house is constructed of cherry wood with a cherry finish.  It took 3-6 months for Mickie’s father to complete. This house has a matching table made of the same material as the house, just as the Hatherlow house that inspired this home. The Hatherlow house is showcased on the Commercial Houses page of this website.

 

The stained glass inserts were designed by Mickie.  She wall-papered this and other two houses herself and created the window curtains from old fabric, lace and trim.
