Recently, I had the Butterfly house for sale on Etsy primarily because I just don't have the room for more than one or two houses in my work room. I have had many requests as to if it was still available and if I could make another one just like it. I would love to, but I just don't have the time and believe me it cost a small bundle to ship the thing. So rather than making a whole house, I've been toying with the idea of making a modern/mid-century modern room box to sell. Something that doesn't cost your right arm and half a leg to ship. Here is what I came up with:
The front porch.
This one is just a prototype. Hence the big smear of glue on the floor.
Floor to ceiling windows in the back.
Large transom window above the front door.
I call her Trudy because it seems like such a 1950's-1960's name. I got the inspiration of the name from a character on Mad Men. She is 24" long, 10" tall and 14" deep. Here she is "naked" with no finishes. I'm thinking of selling her in her natural state and letting the buyer decide to leave her as is or decorate her to their liking. She is made of 1/2" furniture grade birch plywood and edged with birch veneer. I think she would even be sturdy enough for kids. She is put together with wood glue and pin nails. I would love some feedback on whether or not you think this would be a good seller and if there is anything you would change.
