Country Cottage
Im finally continuing on with my Countryside Collection series based on the famous Lilliput Lane models. First appearences can often be deceiving, and this delightful 'little' cottage certainly proves the point, as it is actually only a small section - the cross-wing - of a former medieval timber-framed hall-house that once stood on the same site but was sadly pulled down in 1833. When it was first built in the sixteenth century the timber frame would have been exposed on this attractive cottage in Cowden, Kent, but you will notice that the walls of the upper storey have been covered with decorative hung tiles. Apart from this being the height of fashion in the 1690s, this also had the added bonus of making the unprotected soft wattle and daub infill panels less vulnerable to damage from the ravages of the harsh elements of the English climate. Sorry there is only one picture, I will get round to posting more!

Sweet! I'm liking that this building is all in your style, but it doesn't have the typical 1x1 walls. Really cool.

Do you use Photoshop to make your backgrounds perfectly white? And if so, what button/sequence-of-buttons achieves such perfectly white backdrops? I have photoshop, but not the skill you posess. Mind revealing some of your genius? ~Christopher

I love the use of small 1x1 round plates on the chimney, they give a nice 'worn' effect. Great job!
