Another Stone house - 3 Gables, Rusty Roof

Please join me on my new blog - paperglitterglue.com where this project is included with more already added. Thank you. I hope to see you there.

I've moved this blog post about the Stone house with 3 gables to here. It's one of my favorite houses. You'll find more photos and information at the paperglitterglue.com. I've been making lots of cool paper crafts that you can find on the new blog. Please join me there.

Thank you.


  1. Lucy, Lucy, LUCY! You are an amazing architect! I love, love, LOVE this French house with it's stone facade, rusted roof (can I say I am in love with this again?!) and the fence and even the base! (How big is this, anyway? Judging by the stamped image, I'd have to say it's pretty small. That makes it all that much more challenging to put together.)

    As MUCH as I adore Halloween and decorating any house for Halloween, I'd almost say it would be a shame to change this into a Haunted House, but I guess we'll see, won't we!

    Have I said how much I love this? Thank you for sharing it in our Magic of Three challenge (you did good with this) at A Vintage Journey. Hugs! Sara Emily

  2. Sara, thank you so much for your enthusiastic comment. I am really tickled wit how this house turned out. I know what you mean about decorating this one for Halloween - it's kind of classic as it is. I don't do gory for Halloween, mostly bats and cats and pumpkins and a leafless tree. Maybe I can just add some Halloween elements that aren't glued down.

    You asked about the size - the house itself is 3.25 inches x 1.5 inches. I designed this house pattern so I could cut it out of one 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardboard. I made an insert in the base so 2 LED lights fit inside. I will do another post showing it with the lights on.

    Thank you again. Your comments always make me happy.

    1. Wow, that's TINY! You give me meaning to "tiny houses". Maybe I could just shrink down and live there! I am enamored with your stonework; so sad I don't have that stencil yet, because I am working on a project that requires stones. Will just have to make my own, I guess. Thank you for your reply! hugs!

  3. Lucy, you have done it again - taken my breath away with this gorgeous stone house!! It definitely looks French, it reminds me of a French Gite (holiday home) I stayed in many, many years ago, so to me your house is perfect. The rusty roof is superb and i just love how you tackled painting the stones to leave the mortar colour intact. I fully understand your difficulty in attaching the windows over the stone - not an easy task at all but you have managed it beautifully. I know I keep saying this, but this is my new favourite!!!

    Thanks so much for joining in with us at A Vintage Journey for our Magic of Three challenge too. Anne xx

  4. This is so fabulous! It looks like real stone and rusted metal. The details are wonderful and I love every single one of them! Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Count Me In Challenge on Frilly and Funkie!

  5. I love your stony house - and what a great place to photograph it!

  7. I think you need to do man many more and create your own little village complete with doctors house and pastry shop etc. This is fabulous work and I love it.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  8. I just LOVE your wonderful stone gabled house Lucy! the texture on the roof and walls is just wonderful and looks so much like real stone! thanks so much for sharing this with us at the A Vintage Journey Challenge! Julia xx

  9. Utterly gorgeous Lucy!!! That is brilliantly detailed and textured - so lifelike! Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie and at A Vintage Journey! xx

  10. I'm so happy to see your house was chosen as one of the Pinworthies at A Vintage Journey! Yippee!

  11. Lucy, so so happy to see you as a Pinworthy at AVJ! You are so creative and it thrills me to see your work on display! Hope this starts your weekend off right! Happy Friday!
