Hip Roof Farmhouse - latest House for Habitat

Please join me on my new blog - This project is included with lots of new projects. I hope to see you there. Thank you. 


  1. What a wonderful abandoned house you created Lucy!! The different pieces of siding really give the feeling of decay. Love that rusted tin roof and bright red door! You haven't linked up to the A Vintage Journey challenge - are you waiting to finish the landscape? can't wait to see it all! Julia xx

  2. Yes, I need to finish it before I post it on a Vintage Journey. I think I will do that today. Thank you for your encouraging comments.

  3. Another great project Lucy! I have a question about the siding. Do you cut the siding pieces from the same type/thickness of cardboard that you use for the walls of the house? Great rusted roof. I have never used metal tape, alcohol inks or Distress paints, but you get a great effect. I really love seeing your works in progress.

    1. Laney, Lately I've been making the siding using 110# black cardstock as the background because I want black to show through the crackle and it's pretty strong stuff. On my Italianate mansion ( I did use black painted cardboard. Both work fine. I also paint the house itself black for the seams between the siding.

      The rusted roof is easy, easy. I get my metallic tape from one of the home improvement stores. Also sometimes if I want a house to really light up inside, I coat the interior roof with the metallic tape so it will reflect more light.
