And I wonder why I have unfinished houses! My eyes are always looking, my brain is always swirling, waiting to alight upon a delightful house to build. As I mentioned in the prologue, we never build the same house twice, although for the mo', we may come close to bending that rule.
- Williamsburg Colonial - The Abner Raleigh House (fictional) based on the real William Lightfoot house in Williamsburg, Virginia. This will be a scratch-bulit house, hopefully being as true to the real house as possible for the little people who will occupy it: Anna and Reginald Rowbottom. I have found a drawing of the floor plan and have decided that ours will have a slightly differrent layout.
- Foxglove Gardens - This will be a bash of RGT Foxhall Manor. Not too much of a bash -- more of a modification and simplification. It will be an Edwardian located in Belle Haven (Alexandria), Virginia. It will be the home of Winifred and William Carter. This came about because a couple of years ago, I decided I really liked the Doll House Emporium's Cadogan Gardens. By the time I decided to buy it, they were no longer selling it! My sister decided that the Foxhall Manor had similar lines and was much larger and best of all, was available! So she bought it.
- Dura-Craft Ashley - To make a long story short, we bashed this house with another, and then bashed it again into a larger house (Badgers' Hollow). I decided that I liked the new house, but I missed the original Ashley. We are pretty sure that the new Ashley will be enlarged (not bashed with another house) in length and width, but stay 1-story plus attic. The style will probably be a brick Cape Cod. We do not know who will occupy it.
