A cardboard cutout

Walls!
Modern dolls' house miniature cafe, half built with furniture arranged in a cardboard room.
Table and chairs,

bench seating, pillar and radiator,

and a quiet corner.

The front (without a slope on the laneway):

And again, with a slope:

Which to chose?

On one hand, I like the idea of using the window sills as a ledge to support the table tops (possibly having them hinged so they can be put away at night. Which I couldn't do if I added a slope to the laneway:)

On the other hand, I suspect having the added detail of the slope will add an extra 'zing' to the look of the final piece...

I'll continue to mull the decision over while I work on some other things.

Hmm, slope sounds more interesting but harder. I like the look of the cafe front =0)
Oh, the kit came yesterday. Yours arrived yet?

I know. But got to impress those judges you know ;-)

Great to hear your kit's arrived. Hoping mine holds off for a while yet as I need to get the café finished and start on my Lundby hacking (not to mention this weekend's show plus the May issue of The tiny Times) before I can focus on it...

The slope might be a little difficult for the diners to sit at the table without falling off their chairs, but I do like the look of it. I'm so glad you are doing the CC 2015 build-blog!

By the way I love your new picture! I little Andy Warhol.
