Le Coeur de la Maison Roombox

 This picture is of the original Whitledge Burgess room box that our workshop was modeled after.
 The class was held in Glendale, Wisconsin.  There were 10 students in the class.  Here is a photo of the box when I was installing the ceiling.
 The floor was 300 cut pieces of textured wallpaper that I individually painted to look like Terra cotta flooring.  The wood was all faux finished with burnt umber oil paint and liquin on book board. 
The rectangle holes in the wall will have two 144th scale room boxes boxes for my room box. 
 The cabinets are being installed.  We built all of the cabinets, stove, refrigerator, etc....The marble counter top and back splash are wallpaper that I gave a high gloss glaze shine. 
 This is the back of the box for access to the lighting.  In the large space, I am building a greenhouse that you will be able to see from the french doors.
The kitchen is looking good.  At the end of the class, I still have most of the upper trim and crown molding to install.  Ray and Scott are wonderful teachers.  The students learn so many techniques and skills. 
I look forward to showing you more photos as I progress with the finishing details.
