The only-roof-house

This is the german expression for the a-frame-houses: Nurdachhaus - means onlyroofhouse. I love this word.
I began to build it from cardboard severel weeks ago and - as you could see in this blog - I had no time or wasn't in the mood for miniatures.
But it's the new name of my blog: Wir sollen heiter Raum um Raum durchschreiten. This is very hard to translate. Like: We should cheerfully pass throug room by room.
And today the room (in german the same word for space) is for continueing this work. I made some wooden walls for the inside and the roof from paper napkins. This looks ugly, but I'm sure I will make Progress, hopefully with Neomis help, because she is good in papermachee.

I put some furniture in the house and put it on my balkony while the glue was drying. You can see on the foto that the most difficult part will be the windowframe. Uff!

Hope you like the fotos of the progress on FlickR too.

I have to apologize for my lazyness in answering your nice and sweet and helpful comments. Please forgive me, I hope I can do that later, there is a lot around my ears at the moment. This day was off because my aunt has her 80th birthday and I was there for coffee and to help a little bit. But there was enough time for some other things  - as you can see.
Have a good week!


  1. It looks great. I love the full length windows and how it invites the outside in =0)

  2. Deine Bilder bringen mich richtig in Urlaubsstimmung, wir fahren am Samstag für eine Woche in ein Nurdachhaus und ich freue mich schon sehr darauf!Diese Architektur ist was ganz Besonderes, egal ob 1:1 oder 1:12 :-)

  3. Loving the full height windows! The whole scene looks really good and I love the picture in sepia!

  4. I actually thought the sepia photo was a real house you were copying. Great job.
    lotta liebe

  5. Looking the full length windows!

  6. That's amazing, I've not seen an A-frame dollhouse in years. At least since the 80's. my roof has lots of miniatures and dollhouses under it

  7. Its looking really good already, so do keep going.

  8. I'm so sorry that I missed to answer all these nice comments. Thank you all so very much. Nice holidays to Lilli and all the others who loves a-frame-houses in every scale. I hope you enjoy the progress and stay tuned, even when I am so lazy with my blog ans answers.
