A Unique Opportunity (Deja Vu)

Hi there folks!

Anyone need a new miniature house project?!!  I just stumbled across something this morning that I thought might be of interest to some of you, and thought I would post it.

Then I thought I would not post it, and deleted the post for multiple reasons I won't go into. But in the whole hour it remained on line, a couple of you found it, and asked me about it.  So I thought again, and am re-posting it per request!  :0)

I do think it is a unique opportunity, and goes for a cause I'd love to support, so here we go again!  Thus you may be experiencing "Deja Vu".

I thought a couple of you might be looking for a new project, and perhaps a couple more just need a few more future projects!  This looked intriguing to me, and I thought that it would be neat to see what someone might do with it!  

The doll house is in a pre-order state and for those who are part of the first 100 to purchase,you can pick it up at the discounted rate of 65 US Dollars. For details regarding this offer (which I have no stake in!) see it at CHÂTEAU DE GUDANES.  There you will see the full story.

While you are there, take a look around at the website.  It is an exciting restoration of a once abandoned French Chateau.  There are some wonderful photos on the site, and some history about the project and how the home came to be abandoned.

If nothing else, you will enjoy the history and photos!  Take a look if you are so inclined!

  1. Ah so that's what your post was about. You know you should always post about things like this. May not your cup of tea but you can bet your last dollar that someone will be looking for something like this. I do like the style of this building. Thanks for posting =0)

    1. Yep, I should have known that you can't just delete a post, since I just saw it happen with another blogger we know and love! Lessons Learned!

      The style of the building is what caught me too. I really liked it. I am not in the market (I may never be, since I like the building and designing processes) but I knew a few of you folks were nearing the end of a project, and would inevitably be searching for something to work with. As I said, it was intriguing to me, so I thought it might have some interest to others!

      Thanks Pepper!

  2. Hi Doug! I also thought that I've seen this blogpost before, but it was already gone....:S! Now I know why ;0)! Thanks for sharing. I fully agree with Pepper that it's always interesting to see this kind of houses, so it was a good thing to re post it :D!
    Have a nice week!

    1. Well you thought right! I'll have to remember not to ever delete a post again, won't i?!!

      You enjoy your week too!

  3. Hi Doug! I really like this cardboard house and the possibilities with it are endless! Currently, I do not have the space for such a project but then again..... ? Cardboard is hard for me to resist.:)
    Fatima, Janine and I, hope to see you and your family at the Seattle Show this weekend. I know this it will be a challenge because most heads are down low and backs are bent for a long time over each wonderful table. People only actually straighten up between vendors, however given enough time, I am sure that eventually we are All, sure to bump heads!:D
    Thanks for the Link; the RL Chateau Renovation is Really Intriguing!


    1. I am glad you enjoyed the Chateau reno site. I love what they are doing, and the history behind the house is fascinating if you are a history buff like I am. You were one of the ones I was thinking might just be aching for a new project! I'll be watching you to see if you succumb! :0)

      I hope to see you at the show too! I'll be looking for you. My daughter MAY come with me, but she has been having some health challenges, so that isn't done deal until it happens. If so, it'll be me and a "gorgeous blond". :0) That might help.

      My wife's birthday is the 7th, so I will not be there on Saturday, but will have to go on Sunday. Some things are just more important than miniatures. Shocking, I know! :0)

      Talk to you soon, I hope!
