The Earl's study, staircase, Montreal Miniature Show and birthday presents

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well. Thank you all once again for your great feedback last post. I had not expected to go so long without an update, but I underestimated the level of detail in these rooms and real life has, yet again, been hectic and exhausting. Work on the new wing is going well and I present to you the Earl's study and the Banquet hall staircase.

The fireplace in the earl's study

The study

The staircase

Marble floors

Last post I had just painted illustration board to look like red, yellow, green and black marble.

You saw this one last time

The next step was to cut them and glue them onto a single ply illustration board subfloor. I chose the cube pattern, one of my favorites.


Cutting them was time consuming but not difficult. The problem started when I glued them down. I had 2 sub-floor templates, one for the study and one for the staircase hall. I used the Ultimate glue for the study floor and it worked really well. However some of the glue kept coming up between the cracks when I placed the tiles, so for the staircase floor I used an Extra Strength Glue Stick.


I put the tiles down and weighed them overnight with weights and heavy books. When I went to trim the tiles that were hanging off the edge many of them came undone. If you look at the strip of flooring on the left  in the last picture, you can see where the tiles came off the white subfloor. Not the end of the world, but do not use glue sticks! I must have been tired because I messed up the last row of the study floor. I inverted the yellow and green titles. I just cut off the row ande made a black marble border around the room to make up the difference.

The earl's study

With the floor done I started putting together the rooms. I did one last test run to see if any mistakes jumped out at me.


It looked good, so all that was left was gluing everything in. I started by the wall panels and weighed them down 24 hours to make sure the glue set and the pieces did not buckle. Then I glued the paintings in place and added trim



I had shown you the fireplace before, but the red marble I had made did not match the one on the floor. It was too pink.


I pulled it out, praying the fireplace would not be damaged, and replaced it with the same "marble" I used for the floor. I think it looks better.


The final step was the ceiling. It is a piece of faux-walnut finished illustration board with rectangles cut out of it which I glued over the mdf structure which I painted dark green.


I added a cornice, frieze and cove molding around the room, and I trimmed the cutouts with the cove molding as well. And voila!



I think I will purchase short bookcases for the walls each side of the fireplace. The 2 vitrines I intended to use looked too massive.

Staircase and bathroom

The elements for the staircase were all ready, so, as with the study, I had one last test run.


You can see the beige walls for the bathroom at the back of the room. I made sure everything aligned properly and glued the wall panels in first, then the floor, the staircase and finished with trim and the painted panels.


I glued the elements in the above picture before I installed the wall that separates the 2 rooms.


In the picture above you can see I used a 10 pound hand weight while waiting for the glue to set. Before the wall panels were installed I measured and glued the molding onto the murals. They had odd angles and trimming the picture frame molding for each piece after the paintings were glued into place would have been a nightmare. This way a line of The Ultimate glue all around and a few drops of gel super glue were all that was needed to glue the paintings in. I mentioned that I made the space under the landing 2 inches deeper to create the illusion of a bathroom. The platform was now too short so I made a built in bench to cover the gap. There will be a window on this landing.


I have not glued in place the second part of the staircase because the would mean I could not put the structure upside down to work on the other rooms. I will post pictures when it is done, but for now here is what the staircase looks like with a piece of cardboard to cover the opening above the staircase.


I really like this room, but after the wall separating it from the earl's study was up you can only see little parts of it at once.

The camera was in the study, so your actual view is a little more limited...

...but I know it is all there and when the light is on it actually adds a lot of realism to the flow of the house

This is a view through the door of the unfinished library next door
The room under the stairs was wasted space so I decided to make it look like a small bathroom. I built a window unit with a stained glass window which has a ledge on which I can put a few towels.


The stained glass is a plastic piece I purchased at a Tiffany Glass exposition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts a few years ago. The window piece is not glued into place...


...so I have access to the room in case of repairs or if I decide to add a sink or some other element. The piece cannot come out of the room as it is taller then the opening, but It works well enough and the stained glass looks quite nice when backlight

The floors were leftover marble tiles from past rooms in the manor
As I mentioned before, you can only see this room through the doorways in the study and the library. Sadly, you cannot see it from the back as the house is against the wall, so here are a few pictures to remember what is actually behind the study.




Montreal Miniature show  purchases and birthday gifts

The first weekend in April was the Montreal Miniatures show. Martha and Julie came over the Friday before the show and we had a wonderful visit. Jo came with me to the show and we had a lot of fun...and I shopped.

2 of the arrangements and the apples I purchased from Martha Mclean Miniatures, the lilacs ,also made by Martha, were bought from Grandpa's Dollhouse, and the white lilys were a present from Martha

I purchased the dish set and cake stand from Julie at Westwinds Miniatures, and she surprised me with the shaving set

The swan dishes and clown are by Janice Crawley and the vases were purchased at an estate sale table.

I love shopping at the miniature show, but even more fun was getting my birthday present last week. Jo got both families together again and they bought me a limited edition bird handle copper pot set from Janson and Jacqueline Getzan, as well as a few other kitchen items he knew I was hoping for.




And that is all for this post. I have cut the subfloor for the library so the next step is cutting the wood parquet. I have also been working on futur plans which I have mentioned before...Banquet hall, kitchen renovation... I did make one big decision though: when the present rooms and plans are complete, I am adding a basement floor to the manor for servants quarters, laundry room, linen cupboards, scullery, larder, cellar....This project will never end.

Thank you again for being there to follow my adventures. I promise I will try not to take so long before my next post and again, if you follow me and I do not follow you please let me know!

I wish you all the best and send you all a big hug

Giac

  1. Your marble floors are amazing as is the rest of your build so far. I love the Earl's study, especially the high ceilings. You are so talented in the art of miniature, I can't imagine the hours you put into your work. The stained glass backlit window is lovely.
    Nice buys at the miniature show and your birthday copper pots are to die for! Much love went into choosing your gift.

    Big Hugs,
    Victoria

  3. It was so worth waiting for this post! I can't tell you how badly I just want to shrink myself down to scale and explore the manor! Only being able to get a peek at the space makes it that much more intriguing! Beautifully finished and detailed, Giac! It makes me so happy to look at. And that Jo - for organizing a special gift from loved ones is such a loving thing to do! Happy belated birthday! I hope this is your most spectacular year so far!

  11. Hi Giac! Happy (belated) birthday! I see that you have been spoiled by Jo and family, and your new purchases of the show are fantastic additions to your dollhouse, enjoy all of it!
    The marble floors are fabulous work, just like the rooms you've put together. Thank you again for showing us in clear pictures and explanation how you did these phases of the enormous job!
    Big hug, Ilona

  12. Whaow, whaow, whaow. What an enormous amount of work you have done and it all looks fantastic. Your floor is very impressive and I actually think the black border is a good addition and very typical of the period.
    I love that your rooms 'flow' to give a very realistic feeling of depth. It creates 'tension' which is designed to lead the eye in different directions. Very cool.
    Your purchases and gifts are beautiful. Happy belated Birthday and enjoy all your goodies.
    Thanks for showing us, and describing in detail, the steps you have taken. Very useful and helpful.
    Carol :)

  13. Oh, such a treat to see so much going on in your house! I love the floors and the views from one room to another. Also the stained glass is beautiful, just right for its place. Oh, I envy you've seen Janice Crawley's display in the show. I visited Kensington years ago and bought a teacup and saucer from her and it is one of my absolute treasures.

    Have fun with all the building ahead!

    Hugs, Hanna

  19. First things first - a whole floor new floor for domestic staff???? Brilliant!!! I, for one, hope this project never ends!
    I really love what you have done, Giac. It all works so well together. I particularly like all the pictures you have chosen. Is so hard to find paintings that suit the room and work well together, without it appearing over-thought.
    I'm by green-eyed over your kitchen pots and pans, they are divine.
    Give my best to Jo

  26. Hi Giac,

    Wat een adembenemende vorderingen laat je weer zien.
    De kubuspatronen van de vloeren zien er echt geweldig mooi uit, niet moeilijk schrijf je, maar ZEER bewerkelijk is het wel, zo precies hoe jij altijd te werk gaat dat vind ik echt FANTASTISCH.

    Nog hartelijk gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag Giac, en heerlijk zoveel mooie nieuwe miniatuur
    aankopen je hebt gedaan, het één nog mooier dan het andere. En Wowwwwww, die koperen keukenset wat een schoonheid.

    Heel veel succes met de vorderingen, het is telkens weer een feest om alles bij jou te bekijken SUPER!!!!!

    Liefs,
    Josephine

  30. Hallo Giac,
    der Marmorboden ist fantastisch geworden. Die Wandvertäfelungen mit den eingefassten Gemälden passen perfekt zum Gesamtkunstwerk. Die Idee mit dem angedeuteten Badezimmer gefällt mir.
    Und für das Kupfergeschirr könnte ich mich auch begeistern. Nachträglich noch alles Gute zum Geburtstag und viel Freude mit dem großartigen Hobby.
    Liebe Grüße Veilchen

  32. Hello Giac,
    A whole new basement - YES! Aha, great, I'm so delighted to hear that, because it means we get to see more and more of your wonderful work and brilliant talent.
    The marble floor and fireplace are just superb! In, fact the whole study and surrounding areas are a delight. I just love the architectural details you always include. Each room is so detailed, but so individual. Love, love, love this manor.
    All the best

  33. Dewell Manor house is an incredible work of art that showcases your many talents in such an inspiring way. Each room's finishing, the architectural detailing and the décor selected never cease to amaze and delight. The replacement marble on the fireplace is much better as it now coordinates perfectly with the cube pattern marble floor...it's efforts such as this that are so admirable! You don't hesitate to redo something if it isn't 'correct' and pleasing to the eye. Wonderful shopping at the Montreal show...thanks for sharing the items purchased as well as your birthday treasures. Cheers, Alayne

  41. This is a MASTERPIECE Giac!!! Your handling of these two room, the art collection, the tiny WC, the magnificent staircase, the seating bench on the platform and the FLOORS- .... all of it is a veritable FEAST FOR THE EYES!
    and I love how you re-vamped the marble fireplace too! :D
    All of your show treasures are Wonderful and of course, I can see that your project will eventually need a basement with servants quarters. I Also thing that your lord and lady, should now become The DUKE and the DUCHESS - to properly fit the manor born! :D
    a Very Big hug Sir Giac!

  42. Dear Giac, I am breathless with admiration for your workmanship!!! The pictures of the Study and the stairs look so real... it is really difficult to imagine they are only 1:12 scale!!! You have surpassed all my expectations for these rooms... the colors and patterns are so well chosen and so realistic... I just am (almost) speechless!!! Wow, Wow, WOW! And every step you are going the extra bit to add to that perfection... like the bathroom under the stairs.... with a beautiful stained glass window! And the stairs themselves... all of it only visible through doorways.....!!! THAT is going for perfection!!! I am just constantly impressed with what you make from scratch.... I know, the things you need in the details you want are not readily available.... so necessity is the Mother of invention! But you make such fantastic work seem easy as one two three.... even though we know it is months of careful planning and preparing and step by step construction! You are Amazing!!! Nobody builds minis on the scale you do... and now you are promising us a Basement too!!! Yay!!! It is just so much fun being along for the ride! :)

  50. Hello, Giac - This post was definitely worth the wait. You've done an incredible amount of work, and everything you've completed looks flawlessly done. The cube-patterned tile floor just amazes me; your color choices are perfect. I admit that I was partial to the original red marble for the fireplace, but the new red is the right one to go with the floor. (I hope you'll be able to use the old red elsewhere.) I think the new red marble also beautifully echoes the splashes of red in your murals. I love your idea for the "faux" bathroom - such an ingenious use of that otherwise wasted space. You have, of course, surpassed my greatest expectations for the beautiful detail work in the earl's study and on the staircase. It's a little heartbreaking that all the lovely detail won't be highly visible - but on the other hand, those hidden details create a bit of mystery and intrigue and a burning desire to get inside that manor and investigate every corner at firsthand! You provided me with a big laugh when I read of your plans for the basement servants' quarters, etc. It's an ideal plan; I've always hoped that this wonderful project would never end. Apparently, it never will! ....... Happy belated birthday, Giac. It was so thoughtful of Jo to arrange for your gift of the Getzan copper pots and pans - they'll be the perfect thing for the manor kitchen. That's something else to look forward to!

  52. My most favorite part in your wonderful, breathtaking post offering an overflow of eyecandy was the sentence "This project will never end" - yesssss!!! ;O) Happy belated Birthday to you - as usual your family with Jo in the lead knew exactly how to make your day, I suspect them to be very happy and thankful because they never have any problems to think about what kind of present might please you... You've achieved so much wonderful progress, the marble floor looks stunning with this cube pattern and the whole study is simply awesome in any way. Not to forget the stairs and the bathroom turned out fantastic, great idea for the bathroom window.

    Hugs

  72. Hi Giac, good to see you again and it may have taken a while because of everything RL and miniwise, but you do have something to show! That's wonderful progress and it all fits together wonderfully. I think it's great that you add depth with spaces eventhough not visible that much. It adds realism and makes it even greater than it already is. Looking forward to your libraryfloor, curious to what you come up with now and what challenges you face with achieving the result/design you have envisioned :D. And a happy very belated birthday!!!
