Sid Cooke Coxwolds store
As requested, here are some (bad) photos of my Coxwolds kit (it is tucked into a shelf unit, so hard to photograph). I love this kit, and I am really happy with how it turned out.
Little entry/stairhall on the left side (this will be aged when the timber is all finished and glued in place):
Bathroom, above the entry:
I think it is less bright in real life, a little dustier. There will be a wall at the back, yet to be inserted. I was trying to get all my wiring figured out before getting too far ahead.
I recut the doors so they were a little more detailed, and had a go at hinging the doors yesterday, and this is how it will look (not fully installed thankfully):
But when I tried to open them, this is as far as they opened:
Maybe 45 degrees. The screws for the hinges are too chunky and prevent the hinges opening fully. So I am thinking of maybe just gluing the hinges on and putting some brass brads in the holes. Or just gluing the doors in place. I'm not a doors-opening-drawers-full-everything-has-to-work person, but for photos, I think it would be cute if they did work. Any suggestions?? I know that many of you out there have some amazing work-arounds for all sorts of things.
I want to get moving on this project. And then get some patience to make flowers for this, my Mountfield and Duddingwells.
Bye for now!
