Hello everyone! So happy to join this forum! My name is Laney and I live in North Carolina with my husband where I work as a therapist. I have been making little houses for almost a year - and lurking around this forum during that time, too. I discovered glitter houses after the Big Indoor Trains site came up in a google search last summer. I have made many using Howard's wonderful patterns. (Thank you Howard!) Then I started drafting my own designs/patterns. I have never seen any vintage Putz houses in real life, but I love seeing the collections, repairs and reproductions that you guys share. I have learned so much from the members of this forum. Thanks to Paul for keeping up this site and for adding me today. It's so nice to "meet" all of you.

Here is an "in progress" picture of the first few houses I made last summer.

Laney,
I am so happy to see you here. You will have fun posting here and asking questions and giving advice.

I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful houses. My rule is "Make one, post one."
