This is an interesting house.
Current Ebay auction.

Seems they used a 2 level base.
But the cool thing is the paper used as soil between the two levels.

I saw this one pop up in my email, It's really cool! Does anybody know if that is just creased paper around the base? The round tubes on each eave is really neat and unique, not to mention the lack of coco on the roof too. I'm anxious to see what this one goes for...will be watching with interest!

You're right Howard. It does look like fabric. Maybe dipped n some kind of hardening adhesive like paper mache mix?

I have a similar house that Papa Ted called a Pagoda house and the roof is basically a lacquie type. Mine is corrugated and simulates the orange tile used on old houses. The base "texture" is dampened paper worked with and glued to simulate stone work. I am hoping Kathi McL gets this one as she has two different ones similar to this and would have a complete set. An interesting side note is that the price sticker on this one is 50 cents and was sold at the Frank S. Hall Hardware. Mine and one of Kathi's has the same sticker. What the heck is Frank S. Hall Hardware anyway??? Tom

So how rare is this one.

Went for a pretty penny.

So people do pay big prices for house, huh?
