"Mostly" Finished Front of the Creole Townhouse


 I used a scrap piece to fill in the hole for the lower right door and I will add trim and glue the shutters in place permanently. I am using this door in the kitchen to access the courtyard. I need to decide on my treatment for the door to the carriage way on the left and replace the missing pin. I plan to finish the bricks out front, put the plastic back in the doors, attach doorknobs and wire the lights.

The Original Design

I bought these on my vacation in New Orleans


I used reindeer moss as a filler and support for the leaves

I bought the hangers from miniatures.com

  1. Hi Jocelyn! It is most impressive the accuracy that you have brought to your New Orleans townhouse! The colors and the details of the exterior are warm and tropical and it is no wonder that the potted ferns are thriving! What a beautiful building!

  4. Jocelyn you are really doing a bang up job! The extra accents really makes me think of Bourbon street! This needs to be on showcase someplace. What about a state fair or something?
