Phase Two Face Lift Complete! (aka: Exterior Complete!)

Remember the original Droopy…?

Well, I've finally completed the exterior of my Keystone Put-Away look-alike, good job I wasn't in a race!

Of course the real Keystone Put-Away is actually open at the back so all of this rear facade is made up but I've basically extended the theme from the front of the house.  The rear section of my house is where the rooms from the 'Put-Away' sections of the real Keystone will be recreated.

I have covered one of the rear windows with my masonite (hardboard) facade in order to create a windowless room to house the built-in shower room (located centre top in the real Put-Away).

I like the effect of the French door which will [eventually] lead into a morning room. This will be one of the two extra rooms in my Put-Away as compared to the original because Droopy is an eight room lady whereas Little Loosie's Put-Away (i.e my role model) is a six roomer.  I haven't decided what the other extra room will be yet but it is upstairs so maybe a children's room/nursery.

So now, it's onward and… inside!

Phase Three is to create the inside, I'm REALLY looking forward to this bit - I have no idea how I'm going to do it  but I'm REALLY looking forward to it. Wish me luck! xx


  1. I love that you are putting your own spin on your wonderful house. Can't wait to see more!

  2. Wow! Where can I order a revamped Droopy?? Fabulous!!

  3. I love what you've done with this model. I'm working with a very small screen and so the change from before and after was an unexpected surprise when it scrolled into sight. Wonderful. It's very impressive!
