Also, thanks to Pete for making the measurements and such great authentic replacement products available! The coco and windows look great.

Wow what a bright colorful little house. Wonderfully executed too.
I bought luffah or loofa or loofha or luffa or whatever - the only word I have encountered with NO preferred spelling but it is pronounced the same in any case, on line some time ago by typing in any of the aforementioned spellings into a search of eBay and bought it off there. I mean they have EVERYTHING on that site. Tom

Beautiful! Are the petit four houses on Ted's site? I'd like to take a peek.

Hi Laurie, let me take a look. I have a chapter from a putz guide that I purchased from Pete Oehmen that has these houses.

Hi Laurie, sorry for my delay in responding. I stand corrected there seems to be more than 4 Petit Four houses. There are 2 on Ted's site January 2004 and January 2006. Besides these 2 and the one I made there are 2 more that I know of. I will keep you in mind if I ever come across some other pictures. They are all truly grand houses!!

Thank you Lynn. I took a look at the pics and they are special little houses. Especially that one with the curved porch. I need to buy a couple of chapters from Pete so these might be what I want to take a look at. I want to build a replica, but there are just so many choices and so many houses I'd like to build that I can't make up my mind. :-)

I made the house a second time, basically changed the direction of the corrugated cardboard on the roof and the surface texture and colors.....
