Contemporary Craftsmanship...I'll Take It!

How difficult is it to look at these pictures and not want this dollhouse for yourself? And how difficult is it for you to answer the first question with all that drool collecting in your mouth? I know. It's a beauty--a massive beauty being built by the craftsmen at Miller Woodworking. The company's founder and CEO, Steve Miller, was kind enough to give us an extended preview of the contemporary beach model for the Kaleidoscope Ball Dollhouse Showcase. The house is not complete in these images, but it's already a stunner. I have to give a nod to the craftsmen working on this structure. The work looks high quality, but that's no surprise really if you visit the company site and see what other works of art they have created. You know I have a high regard for artisans. Let's face it, this hobby and our miniature collections would be lackluster without them.  

I'm quite fond of the kitchen cabinetry in this model...and is that an Elf Miniatures range tucked in there? The staircase makes me swoon. Its design actually reminds me of the work we've seen from Paris Renfroe. Oh! And those terraces...those walls of "glass"... I look at this canvas and just want to get my hands on it. I can't wait to see this house fully dressed. Enjoy the rest of the images below and share your thoughts!
