Wall 1 finished! This is the internal wall between the kitchen & wall/entrance.  Below is the kitchen side complete with real brick backing for the stove.
 This is the entrance side.  I inked the paper in an earlier post.  As the entrance is the first impression that guests got I was as opulent as possible to show owners wealth/status.  
 I was originally trying to do 'wood' panels with gold highlights, but decided to go all out with the gold.  It is only a dollhouse afterall.  I used hubby fancy paints again & love the way the panels almost look like leather.

First completed 'room'

My 'Priest Hole'
I cut a hole in the subfloor to create a root cellar or Priest Hole under the kitchen floor.  They featured in my fave series of books - The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon.  I am not sure if it completely historical correct to have one but I wanted one.  Originally I closed the gaps at the back properly, but once the floor is put over the top it is pretty  dark so I figured the tiny bit of light might be good.  The little Bible has only 6 tissue pages & no writing (baby wanted writing, but once the floor is on it wont matter)  Same with the white blanket, I know it should be grey but I wanted the brightness.  There is 'glass' to the front for viewing purposes.
