Move Over another Stockbroker on the Way

I have just bought another Triang Stockbroker, even though I don’t have any more room for a big house.  Once I see a Triang House, it like seeing a puppy that needs a new home.  So I thought I would buy it for spares.  It was sold to me as needing a little restoration, as much of it had been done already …..

As you can see the entire house has been over-painted twice I think once blue and then cream. The front door and internal back door have both been stripped of paint, but have all the original door fittings.  It has all the internal doors.  The wooden beams on the house have been painted black.

Complete staircase, although the stair carpet has been over painted on the lower staircase, the upper is not.

The house does have all the windows, [none of them have curtains, just some decorative lace stuck on the inside]. All the windows need restoring, they are rusty, and the frames have been painted black. The sundial is missing from the chimney, and there are no chimney pots.

There are green cardboard shutters, which I shall scan and touch up them up in Photoshop.

There is no original wallpaper in this house, unfortunately every room has been over-painted with coloured gloss paint, I did find a scrap of wallpaper behind the kitchen dresser, [shown below] and a piece behind the stairs which I have not seen before, but it may have faded.

It has the panels for lighting but the metal tags at the top are broken.

This is the view of the inside of the porch, you don’t often see.

So disassembling begins.  And as it begins, I can see just how much work needs to be done.

So now a decision has to be made, what do I do with this house, with no room for another large house, my first thought was to break it up for spares. but I am now thinking I will make this one smaller.

This is not something I would normally do, but I could make it like the Half Stockbroker. Although the porch on the side of the Half Stockbroker house is different to the Stockbroker, it would look alright and the house would balance out well with the chimney on the side.

One final note ……..

  1. Someone really liked their paint brush! They over-painted the stair carpet? Really?
