The attention to detail is brilliant, Dal! cheers cheers cheers I never tire of seeing this being used in your comic strips.

I've flirted with the idea of making something similar to this, but so far i only have an empty Sainsburys cardboard box, a couple of loo roll tubes, some string and some UHU-glue! Embarassed

Thanks Clive!, yes it does make a great backdrop for stories.

To build a room mate, I would suggest using 1/2 boards, that way you get stability, the only problem is having somewhere to put it! Sad . Mine is a bit of beast, it measures around, 16" (depth) x 20" (height) x 28" (length). Most of the items in there are either home made or from charity shops. The desk itself, is two wooden jewelry boxes cut and mixed together. The book shelves are 3D picture frames, the books came from printable sheets that reddragon sent me cheers . Be creative Clive! you can make almost anything work Very Happy . Also, never underestimate re spraying Barbie or sindy household parts, I mean, they are the perfect scale! Go for it Clive!

believe it or not I keep eyeing up the old SINDY multi floor Dolls house. It has similar measurements to your room here Dal but 3 floors and a roof floor.
Keep trying to get one but apparently seems to be a very popular piece for Sindy collectors as empty ones go for £60+ :/

So yes a big base needed but goes upward and 3 rooms to play with Very Happy Well that is My goal for doing room dios.

lol! lol! lol! Good stuff mate!, i know you will come up with something awesome!

I have since in the process of starting a new project. This one is much bigger than the last. Originally, I was going to build a bar or naffi for my guys and I was going to build it the same as my room. However, when I placed the frame together, I realized how big it was! Shocked . So a new idea has since formed,







So, the new idea is to build a stage set. A basis for other dios. I am going to make interchangable inner walls, which because they will be flat, will be easily store able Very Happy

Thanks snowy!, the longest part was hunting down all the small parts, once the box was built, it was more fiddly than anything bounce
