Interesting work for the whole family - a puppet lodge with your own hands

Toy house

The dream of any girl is a big beautiful dollhouse, equipped with all interior objects, very expensive pleasure.

Not everyone can buy it in the store.

However, you can make a puppet lodge with your own hands, and if you attract your daughter to the process, the joint work will bring the pleasure of the whole family.

Housing options for dolls

In order to proceed with the manufacture, you must first resolve the issue with the size and material of the future design. Then make a project of the house, make drawings for drinking or cutting, thinking out and pick up materials for finishing, consider bonding options and setting the entire structure. It is important that she was stable and could withstand small "shocks."

The size will depend on the height of dolls, which will "live" there, as well as on the possibilities of the room. After all, the apartments on half the room will take too much space, limiting the hostess.

House accommodation

At the same time, a very small design will be more complex in manufacturing and finishing, because it is not easy to work with small details.

For ease of use, the height of the ceilings is installed at the level of double-growing dolls, then it will be easy to move it on the rooms and installed inside. Higher ceilings are just welcome, they will make the game even more interesting.

The depth of the rooms is determined on the basis of the growth of dolls and the need for a free space for items inside the house. On average, it is 30-45 centimeters, but may be more. The width is calculated on the basis of the number of rooms for dolls and room volumes.

The shape of the house is usually reminded by a rectangle, elongated in height or width, it all depends on the manufacturer's imagination. For a large design, you can use furniture wheels that are screwed from below and make it easy to move the housing for dolls to any place.

You can create a project on paper or using modern technologies, in the program on the computer, which will calculate the number of materials needed for the building.

An example of a standard Doll House Project:

Doming dimensions

In many ways, the size depends on the material, since not every raw material can save the shape and withstand the load. Let's try to consider houses from different materials.

Plywood or laminate

Plywood is a very good choice for making a puppet house. It is well holding the shape, strong enough, it is easily fastened with glue or self-tapping screws. It is convenient to work with it using standard tools, only after completion of the work it is desirable to clean it with a skin to make it smooth.

Phaneru is convenient to decorate with paper or cloth, and it is also durable. Laminate has similar properties, which is also often used to create a puppet apartment.

Example of a puppet diagram:

Domika project

To create you will need:

  • laminate or plywood, with a thickness of at least 7 mm;
  • PVA glue, it can be replaced with carpentry;
  • electrolovik;
  • Wallpaper remains that will be used to decorate walls, furniture items, and for sex you can use the self-adhesive film;
  • pencil for applying marks;
  • Roulette or centimeter.

The manufacturing process consists of the following steps:

  1. Drinking the wall of the design of plywood in size in the drawing.
  2. Selecting places where windows, doors will be, drinking them.
  3. Collection of construction with carbon black and small carnations.
  4. Roof construction, its design. The roof of the house can be covered with corrugated cardboard and coloring, soaming thus tiled.
  5. Fastening the design to the base is a piece of plywood having a little large sizes. This is necessary to impart the design of greater stability and the possibility of an additional decor. For example, on a wide surface in front of the house, you can organize a veranda or flowerbeds.
  6. Decorating the inner and outer sides of the walls, gender. Sometimes it is more convenient to salary the inner walls before collecting the house, then there will not be visible joints, but in this case it is important not to make large screws, disrupting the proportions of the design.
  7. Arrangement of furniture.
  8. Interior decoration with small details: curtains, rugs, tablecloths and other things.

Plasterboard layouts

Plasterboard is also a popular material because of its strength and low cost, because it often remains after repair in the form of small pieces that have nowhere to attach. Barbie's house is the perfect option for this. However, it is harder to fasten it, the adhesive is good here, it will be necessary to align the place of the cut to reduce the consumption of the means.

Self-tapping screws twisted in metal corners will be more efficient. But they will need to take small sizes or then sprinkle the tips sticking outside.

The scheme of working with plasterboard is similar to the design of plywood, the tools for it are needed the same. Therefore, you can use the scheme above.

House of Gypsum Carton


This material is also from the discharge of the budget remaining after the purchase of household appliances or other goods. His only disadvantage is fragility, so it should be carefully working with foam.

For work you will need:

  • Polyfoam, preferably large sheets;
  • toothpicks, bamboo sticks (remain from sushi sets);
  • glue pistol;
  • several wooden lines;
  • corrugated cardboard;
  • Wallpaper remains;

  3. Cutting future windows, doorways.
  4. Assembly. To do this, you will need toothpicks that need to be broken in half, copper pieces of foam, between them, apply glue and press it tightly.
  5. The gluing ceiling and floor occurs also with a glue gun, only to harden the designs need to be strengthened. For this, bamboo sticks are used, which are glued to the foam in the form of transverse beams.
  6. Separately built an inter-storey staircase, it is made of wooden lines or the same foam, and the railing of toothpicks or bamboo sticks. After that, ready to go into the design.
  7. Production of the roof, material for which foam or corrugated cardboard can serve.
  8. The decoration from the outside includes painting the entire building of the acrylic paint, which is convenient to apply a foam sponge with light tangent movements. Outside, a balcony that is assembled similar to the stairs can be performed.

  10. Arrangement of furniture, settlement.

Bookshelf or rack

It is not necessary to purchase materials for the manufacture of housing for dolls, sometimes it is enough to use interior items that are no longer in the go. So, the old bookshelf or the cabinet may well become housing for Monster High or a small princess.

At the same time, the scope of work will be minimal: it will only be necessary to close the rear wall of the house and equip the internal contents. Details such as the roof and chimney, for the design, standing at the wall, can generally be drawn or depicted with adhesive tape.

Book shelf house

Old cabinet or chest

Old bedside tables, dressers, wardrobes from wood can also be used in the attic or in the basement. They are much better suitable for large dolls and require minimal processing.

Internal shelves, boxes can be removed by creating thus large rooms. Or, on the contrary, add partitions between high ceilings under the height of the dolls used. And of course, finishing, which will give the product a finished look.

From the cabinet


The popularity of cardboard is quite explained, it is inexpensive, easily going, is always available. True, this design is short-lived, because the cardboard breaks and rifles. Therefore, it is better to use corrugated cardboard that is used for packaging.

The house from it is going to quickly and easily from the primary materials:

  • Fabrics and other things.

Tools that will be needed in work:

The assembly process is simple and similar to other constructions, but the cardboard has some features: it is easily lightning, so it is necessary to crush it carefully. Bashed better with glue, with this edges are not trimmed, but bend inside and act as a fastening element.

To bend the cardboard correctly on this place, you need to spend something pointed, but not cutting, for example, a pencil. A groove is formed, according to which the material will easily bend.

Cut details like windows are better than a stationery knife on the outlined lines.

Kids will be more suitable compact soft houses from the fabric, for children 3-6 years old - light cardboard houses, and younger schoolchildren are solid buildings from plywood or old furniture.

But it is not enough to make a beautiful house - it is also necessary to equip it: decorated walls and floors, arrange furniture, add accessories, settle the dolls. Self-made puppet house is constant creativity: the search for new solutions, adding original parts and the settlement of new residents who need new rooms and additional furniture.

Psychologists advise to use the creation and arrangement of such a dollhouse as an ideal means of communication with the child, because during the game you can find the points of contact and it is better to understand each other.

A lot of requirements are made to the puppet house: the child needs a bright and interesting product, Mom cares about the environmental friendliness of the toy, and dad - about the strength of the structure. It is unreliability that is the main problem of purchased doll houses that do not always withstand the active games of moving babies.

Houses for plywood dolls

Tens of affordable colors and textures make it possible to create a dream house in any style. Such a house is very durable, so it is able to withstand not only light cardboard or plastic furniture, but also more reliable wooden parts.

Houses of boxes or cardboard

The ideal option for joint creativity is the creation of a house for dolls from cardboard boxes. Its dimensions can be any: tiny figures will be cozy in a box from under shoes, the box is more suitable for a box from under the vacuum cleaner, and if you wish a puppet mansion - look for a box from under a washing machine or refrigerator.

House for dolls from boxes

Council. A large house can be done not from one, but from several small boxes, thoroughly bonded with each other. Such a structure can have several floors and rooms, a spacious attic and even a basement.

Cardboard doll house

Working with the box begins with the removal of one of the walls, as well as the installation of partitions between the rooms. The hollow box becomes a blank for the future of the house: walls, floor and ceiling decorated with paper, you can place plastic furniture on the rooms, which the house will withstand.

Such a dwelling for dolls is attractive with its light weight, so rearrange him to another room or take out in the summer to the street completely simple.

In addition, in such a doll house it is easy to repair: it is enough to purchase several sheets of design paper and is already ready for a new interior. It is usually such a construction so fonds that adults and children begin to make the furniture and decor for dolls without stopping.

Mastery of the house can be not only from finished boxes, but also from sheet cardboard: you will need patterns, glue, scissors and colored paper, as well as fantasy and desire to turn a boring brown cardboard in a real fabulous castle.

Dollhouses from cardboard boxes do it yourself

Dominics from plasterboard

Make a house for dolls is the easiest thing when the apartment is repaired. A huge number of building materials allows without special costs to build a completely attractive dwelling for dolls of any size.

At the same time, the puppet house will resemble a reduced copy of the apartment, because for its decoration you can use the remnants of real wallpaper, laminate, linoleum and even tiles.

To make a full-fledged drywall house, you will need a scheme of details and the material itself. Carefully revealing plasterboard connects in small corners, and then the walls are putty and painted (or wicked with wallpaper). Such a house looks like a real, especially if you observe the layout of the rooms, as in the present housing.

Houses from old furniture

Make a great puppet house for your child can be from old furniture, which has long been dust in the garage or on the balcony. Old Dresser, Detail of the kitchen headset or part of the bookcase after simple transformations can turn into an attractive and interesting house for dolls.

Council. A significant advantage of such a house is its dimensions, allowing the opportunity to use large toys, as well as the presence of doors: all dolls will sit in the closet, and the room will be the perfect order.

To turn the old cabinet in a stylish toy, you will need help your dad or grandfather, because it will be necessary to cut the jigsaw windows, rearrange the shelves or change the configuration of the cabinet content by adding partitions. For the maximum comfort of the playing child, all surfaces are thinning with a thin layer of putty, which also allows the house to look more attractive.

The final finish of the finished house is entrusted to the mother, which, together with the baby, chooses wallpapers for all rooms, flooring, furniture and decor. Walls at home can be simply painted, you can stick with wallpaper, colored or packaging paper.

In the interior of such a puppet home, it looks great or independently made of furniture: cabinets of boxes, sofas from juice packages, cardboard racks and soap boxes.

Houses from fabric or stationery folders

Fabric doll houses are a great option for kids 2-5 years. At this age, the child needs cognitive and safe toys, and the dwelling for dolls from the fabric is absolutely safe. Fabric house can be two types: a suspended version with a folding shelves or a house-handbag, which is folded into a full-fledged housing. Both options look worthy and deserve attention.

Fabric houses

The fabric house is attached to the wall and does not take place in the folded form, so it is chosen for small children's rooms or small apartments.

Gaming house from folder for papers

Sew such house for even a newcomer:

  • It is necessary to make a dense rear wall with thematic pattern,
  • provide a place for future shelves-room,
  • sew "Paul rooms" and put inside cardboard,
  • Send an improvised floor with one edge to the base and fasten with ribbon or ribbons in a horizontal position,
  • Choose light furniture, soft dolls and settling the house.

Sew a house for dolls in the form of a handbag is a little more complicated: it will take the details scheme, a multi-colored fabric, wall filler, decor for decoration and skill to work with a sewing machine or hand needle.

Since the walls of such a house must be solid, a plastic mesh or cardboard plays the role of the basis, which should be wrapped with a soft material (cotton, thin foam or sheet synthetic), and follow the selected cloth. The house walls can be decorated with ribbons, buttons, appliqué, embroidery - make a toy interesting for a child of any age.

A slightly easier way to create an entertaining home is the use of stationery folders as the basis of the house. Such a dwelling for dolls resembles a book with bright pictures, which can become a platform for active children's games.

Make such a toy easily: the folder from the inside is punctured with beautiful paper, imitating wallpaper, glue furniture from above - that's ready room. 3-4 vertically standing folders are already similar to the real house in which the dolls can be found.

Any puppet house that parents can make for their baby will be an original creation suitable for the game and child development. Large or compact, durable or soft, fabulous or realistic, such a house is a great daughter gift or son on any holiday.

House for dolls do it yourself: drawings with dimensions

You can share or save for yourself:

No comments yet, but you can write your opinion or ask a question.

Just like boys dream of a house on a tree, also girls dream of a doll house for their favorite toys. Of course, you can buy it, but a good house stands at all indecent money, and you can't buy a bad child. Another thing is to make it yourself, but be prepared for what will take a lot of time. Especially if you do not have too much experience. On average, to make a house for dolls with your own hands, you will need at least a week.

We choose the material

You can make a house for dolls with your own hands from any sheet building material. The thickness of the material for the house is a height of about a meter (for two floors) 9-15 mm, for one-storey it is possible and the thorough. Consider the most common materials used by the construction of a doll house:

  • Plywood. An excellent choice, as it is durable, keeps the form well, can be glued, combined with nails and screws. Cut the Faneru saw for metal (with a fine tooth), pubesomes (manual or electric). The ends should be well polished so that there is no possibility to drive the off-therange. Upon completion of the work, you can cover with varnish or veneer, paint, caught with wallpaper, etc.

  • Plasterboard. After repair remains trimming, which can be used. To bonded the sheets with each other will need tin corners (you can - perforated corner). Mount will be attached to special self-tapping screws, but they will hang around from the back, so the option is not from the best. You can try to "plant" on glue, but you have to align the cut line to reduce the flow of glue.

  • OSB (OSB). According to the properties, the material is similar to plywood, with the only difference that it is moisture-resistant and is made of chips. Work with it is approximately as with plywood.

    OSB - also good stuff

  • Cardboard. The most inexpensive and most tender material that does not keep loads very well. It is better about the Cardboard for Scrapbooking (you can buy in stores for needlework). It is more dense and durable, you can make single-storey houses or use for the roofing device. Connect using glue or stapler brackets. In order for the house for dolls to be more reliable, it is better to collect the frame from the planks, and then cover it with cardboard.

  • Chipboard ordinary or laminated (LDSP). Plus this material - it can already be with the finish finish. If you wish, you can order the sawing of the entire "box" of the house with a sticking edge in some furniture company. It will remain then only to collect. Moreover, you can use screws or furniture fittings. Three are too thick material, which increases the mass, formaldehyde, and fragility for lateral loads. If you can cheat with a thickness and mass, then the allocation of formaldehyde should not ignore. We must search with the E0-E1 emission class. With fragility, unfortunately, you will not do anything. Is it possible to use the corner to connect the parts, and this is not too beautiful.

  • Furniture shields. Move from wooden planks glued with carbon black glue. An ideal option for making a dollhouse: environmentally friendly, durable, easy to process. But the furniture shields do not call cheap, although they are not so road as an array. In any case, it can be taken to make the box - the bottom, side walls and overlap. The roof and rear wall can be made from other materials (for example, DVP, plastic, etc.).

There are more options like laminate, wooden lining, thin shaggy board. But they work with them not so often. In any case, the minimum thickness of the materials is 6-7 mm. Then the house for dolls will be reliable and withstand even your child.

Features of work with plywood

Most often, in the manufacture of a puppet house, Paneur is used. As you probably know, it can be different brands. Making a puppet lodge with your own hands is better made of furniture polished plywood. It is possible to conifer breeds, but preferably from birch. The construction is better not to take, even though it is two times cheaper.

In general, it is easy to work with plywood. If there is an electrolybiz and grinders, cut and the preparation of parts will take a couple of hours. The only complexity that may occur in the manufacture of a two-story house for plywood dolls - installation of the overlap of the second floor. T-shaped plywood mount is not the simplest task.

We must come up with the mounting of the overlaps
We must come up with the mounting of the overlaps

The glue is not too reliable, but try to set fasteners in the end of the screw type with a thickness of 6 mm. It is difficult - the material may differ, even with preliminary versions of the holes (the thinnest self-tapping screw is 1.8 mm). There are several options:

  • Make on nails (not too securely, except to embroider with glue);
  • Install at the bottom of the corner (not very beautiful);
  • On the perimeter to put a stroke, which will also support the floor, and "work" with a ceiling plinth (the best option).

After drinking parts, all the joints must be finely polished. First take sandpaper wood with medium grain wood, gradually go into small. When the edge becomes smooth, you can start the assembly.

Drug House Draft

The first thing to start building a house for dolls is to create a project. It is necessary to determine the height and number of floors, the width of the room, the type of roof, there will be or no basement. Choose strokes if desired. It is arbitrarily, but all other parameters must be counting.

Dimensions of the puppet house depend on the size of dolls. To play it is convenient, the height of the ceilings in the premises should be no less twice the growth of the doll. For example, with a doll height of 22 cm, the ceilings in 40-45 cm will give enough space for their free movement, but if the ceilings are even higher, it will be even more convenient to play. But still need to take into account the growth of the child. The height of the highest overlap must be slightly below the eye level. In this case, it will be convenient to play, and the house for dolls will be "on the grown" - for a couple of years height will be enough.

The depth of the rooms for dolls also depends on the growth of dolls, but also from the availability of free space. On average, the depth is made 30-45 cm. This is enough to accommodate the entire situation. But it can be deeper.

That's about the same way to do before starting work.
That's about the same way to do before starting work.

The width of the doll house depends on the number of rooms in it. Here are defined depending on the available free space. The form usually the frame of the doll house looks like a rectangle, but it will be pulled out in length or height - it is all determined himself. If the design is large, you can make furniture wheels to the bottom. It is very convenient - the toy turns out to be mobile.

You can draw the project itself in any designer program, but if you do not own them, it is easier to do it on paper. Why do you need a draft doll house? To calculate the number of materials needed for its manufacture, and without sizes and quantities you will definitely make sure.

Features of finishing

Finishing a house for dolls with your own hands is no less than the issues than the construction. In principle, you can use the same method of finishing as in apartments or houses. For example, in the rooms for dolls of the walls can be separated in the following ways:

If you have chosen the option "Bloom Wallpaper", it's easier to do it before the assembly stage. Even if there are several floors, the workpieces are drawn, glued wallpaper. It is much easier than then try to crack the corners.

The outer decoration is not much different. Most often use painting. This is the optimal option in terms of practicality and labor costs. If you want, you can do something similar to the decorative plaster. It can be mimic with gray toilet paper. Only choose it is thorough. It is torn to pieces, sampled PVA (1 to 1) diluted with diluted water, lay out on the walls, forming the necessary relief. After drying, you can paint using acrylic paints. This is a decoupage technique and can be used with colored or ordinary napkins.

Registration of windows and doors

Cut windows in plywood, OSP, and in any other material, not such a problem. To begin with, the drill and drill make a hole in which you can skip the saw blade. Next - the case of technology. The cut hole is grinning, bringing to smoothness, and then you need to do so that the holes made are like the windows. For this you need frames, curtains. If desired, glass can be made of transparent plastic bottles.

Much depends on the details
Much depends on the details

Binding frames can be made of white cardboard. Stick them after the completion of "finishing works." Doors Children love to open / close, so it is better to do them from thin plywood. Fasteners can be found - there are piano loops or small furniture. From wire and thin tubes can be made.

May the light be!

The house for dolls with lighting is the highest pilot. And there is no need to make a system of wires, converters, light bulbs and other electrical "filling". There is a very simple and spectacular solution. In any more or less large lighting shop there are small LED lamps running from batteries. And they are mounted on the velcro. Each lamp is equipped with its own switch, runs from voltage to several volts. In general, a very good output.

These are non-volatile LED lamps.
These are non-volatile LED lamps.

If you still want to make a real light in a dollhouse, you need a 220/12 in or battery converter with a corresponding voltage. We still need light bulbs or LED tapes under the corresponding nominal, a bunch of wires. In general, this path is much more complicated and requires much more time, but also a possible option.

How to make a roof

If the roof is planned by the usual - double, the planning of the attic space or the attic floor it is necessary to make the partition in the center, which will maintain the roof in the junction of two halves of the roof. This is the easiest way. There are more complex.

The roof on a puppet house can be done in different ways can be done in different ways.
The roof on a puppet house can be done in different ways can be done in different ways.

If you need a roof of a complex shape, cut out several rafters from plywood, which will set the form. They are fastened to the walls, we are wearing any flexible material. It can be cardboard, fiberboard. The ends of the rafters are missing with glue (better - joiner), after which the material is placed. If the bending is too cool, you may need additional fasteners. Usually use thin small carnations by type of shoal.

Materials and tools for reworking the frame:

  1. Locker, chest or rack;
  2. Plywood, MDF or boards with a thickness of 25 mm, width 30 cm and a length of at least 120 cm (these are the dimensions for the Cabinet of Billy, but you can take the boards less than or greater length / width depending on the size of your cabinet);
  3. Leaf of organic, PVC wall panel or MDF (for the manufacture / replacement of the posterior wall and the manufacture of partitions in the rooms);
  4. Bar 5x5x20cm (tube will be made from it);
  5. Several small photo frames that will become windquarters for windows;
  6. The decorative molding of a small width (can be polyurethane);
  7. Screws and screwdriver;
  8. Carbon black and liquid nails;
  9. Drill and drill.

Decorating materials:

  1. Wood putty (not required, but desirable for masking mounts and joints);
  2. Primer (not obligatory, but desirable for better paint resistance);
  3. Acrylic paints of the desired colors;
  4. Malyary Scotch;

  6. Scissors;
  7. Materials for facing the walls of the rooms (the paper is best for scrap-booking);
  8. Sticks from popsicle to create a lattice fence;
  9. Material for the manufacture of tiles on the roof.

Step 1. Painting Stellage

This step is not required if you are satisfied with the color of the selected rack or cabinet. For example, white or monophonic colored furniture and without painting will look great.

  • If the cabinet is old or has too "furniture" look, then it is exactly necessary to repaint. For this purpose, according to the following scheme: Okuring and grinding - primer (before drying) - a layer of paint (up to dry) - a second layer of paint (up to dry) - a layer of matte varnish.

In this master class, the puppet house will not only become painted, but also to decorate with brickwork. If you like this idea of ​​the decor, then prepare the following accessories:

  • Cellulosic sponge;
  • Gray paint;
  • Acrylic paint (in our instruction uses a mixture of two colors - colors of red brick and chocolate).

So, first paint the entire rack of gray paint. As soon as the last layer of paint dries, proceed to the creation of brickwork. To do this, cut the rectangle from the sponge of approximately 3.5 × 8 cm in size, which will become a template template.

Sponge as brick pattern

In the container, we pour the paint, we rinse the sponge in it and, starting with the bottom of the cabinet, print bricks - first one row, then the second row in a checker order. Do not forget to withstand indents between bricks about 5 mm. Thus, color approximately 1/3 part of the house.

Step 2. Making windows

This step is also not required, but if you want to create a realistic miniature at home, it is better not to skip it. In order to cut the windows, you first need to measure the window "frames" (if any) and draw markings on the walls of the cabinet from the outside.

As soon as all windows are ready, you can start cutting. For this, the drill is done by holes in the corners of the markup inside the border to create a starting point for the jigsaw blade. So that the wind edges look carefully from the inside, from the inside of the cabinet over the markup contour, you need to glue the painting tape. In the photo below you can see the work process.

So that the windows have a more finished look, prcription and paint "window niches", remove the ribbons and stick the frames outside the house.

Step 3. Mounting and roof decor

In order to make a roof, you need to cut 2 boards with a width of 30 cm from plywood (or other lumber), but 61 cm and 59 cm in different lengths.

Next, drill three holes along the edge of the short side of the 61 centimeter board as shown in the photo.

Preparation of roofing rods

Now the end of a shorter board is joking at a right angle with the edge of a 61-centimeter board and drill holes again, but only in the face of a short board, passing the drill through the previously made three holes of the edge of the long board. This stage is clearly shown in the following photo.

Preparation of roofing rods

We glue two boards together, then fix with screws. If desired, the place of the joint can be embedded with putty.

Connecting the roof of the roof

Pipe doll house

Well, that's all, the roof is ready, it remains only to fasten it to the cabinet in the inner corners, as shown in the photo.

Roof mounting

Step 5. Replacing or mounting the posterior wall

The next step involves equipping the shelving by the wall, if it is not, the replacement of the existing wall is more cute (nr under white lining) or simply installing the missing wall for the attic floor. Actions are as follows: We do the desired measurements, cut out from the organity / wall panel the workpiece and secure it from the back on the carnations / screws / glue.

Step 6. Installing partitions to create rooms

Cut out from any material (organice, wood, MDF, plywood) Interior partitions, then remove door openings in them and install with glue or screws. Wu-ala! The house for dolls is built, you can proceed to the most exciting part of the work - the decor and the filling of the rooms with furniture.

22. Final actions are cleaning a house from dust.

For safety, we recommend that protective glasses and a protective mask are used in the manufacture of wooden products.

We did not cover the house with paints and varnish, the TC is the future owner plans to separate the paints and cover the house of Lac.

And now we look at the result that we did.
