The next project...

The kids are back to school in a week so I'll finally get more time for mini making.  The Daydream cottage still needs some details worked on but I'm itching to get started on another project.

I've decided my next project will be the Strawberry Patch since it is essentially already built.  The strawberry patch has a small attic which is great for storage but not livable.  I've decided to do a little kit bashing and replace the roof with a mansard roof with a removable front.   

Here it is mocked up in cardboard...

Originally, I was thinking of making it a kind of timeless glamorous townhouse but I recently rewatched the movie, Easy Virtue, set in 1929 and I was intrigued with the American character, Larita. 

So for now, the townhouse will be set in London in the 1930's with a glamorous Jean Harlow type actress residing.

The research should be fun!  Any suggestions for research sources or appropriate mini sources would be much appreciated!
