This Triang No.77 belongs to Karen Lyons, a lot of hard work has gone into the restoration of this house. She kindly sent me pictures of her progress.
This picture shows the house with the back removed, your can see how bad the roof is.
Many of the Triang house’s have roofs that are made from stiff enbossed card, you can see in the picture above how they deteriorate with age, and where they are stored. There is a lot of work to do inside and out.
………it wasn’t easy especially the roof all the measuring out and then cutting each tile but enjoyed it and nice to see it all done up…….
A finished roof panel, covered in slate paper and the edges neatened off with tape.
Lovely yellow flowers.
Very smart with a new roof and paint.
…….The house when my parents bought it first only had the outer window frames no windows that open just some plastic with black marker pen to look like Windows, Which my Mum said my Dad did and my Mum did the net curtains (which I haven’t done yet) down the side and put the curtains in and paper on walls. She is so pleased to see it all renovated again………
……….Its got different sizes of furniture as I never know which ones will fit best. Some 1/12 go and some 1/16 even some 1/24 so a mix of all sorts, but fun. My Niece Demi (18 months old) Loves it and now full of Dogs, Guinea Pig, Rabbits and a couple of Ducks outside near the front door, as well as others, all small scale got some for her dolls house and I only wanted a couple of Dogs but she puts them in mine……..
Very cosy inside, just were you want to be on a chilly Autumn evening.
……..Unfortunately I don’t have room to keep any more houses but if I find one in a poor state I wouldn’t be able to resist getting it and renovating it. So you never know there could be another at some point, it’s very addictive renovating the old houses. Karen……….
