Hi Jo, in my spare time (ha, what's that?) I'm creating a miniature of our tiny terraced house and using a very basic mdf kit I got off eBay but have customised to give it both an opening back and a semi opening front, the front now has a fab bay window, upstairs window and door plus small front garden and I am chuffed with how it is turning out.
I've also got a DHE kit to start on, the Holme Lodge house with basement (the kind of house I wish I owned in real life, sigh!) and will be getting on with that shortly once my first house is finished and now I've completed my eComms foundation degree. It's a fab hobby and we love to visit miniature shows and shops
