chalet style


And I built the last of the initial houses for the neighborhood, too. It’s supposed to be a classic chalet, but it has a dorky and non-classic dormer on the side because I forgot to leave space for a bathroom upstairs, and I didn’t want to rip it apart. Derp. :p But even with the dorky dormer, I kinda like it because I have a gigantic soft spot for chalet style in general. It’s the only building in the neighborhood that doesn’t use the log walls because IMO chalet style looks better with vertically-oriented exterior cladding, and I don’t have vertical log walls. So, it got wood-tone board-and-batten siding instead.

The interior isn’t done (and it’s still not done on the fifth house, either), but otherwise all the initial houses are built now.

Montreal you are so beautiful 💛💜💚💙


I guess one has to consider this building to be one the most remarkable around. A big wooden castle in the middle of nowhere. Sort of nowhere, at least.
Like something from a Disney-tale. 

Built in 1888, in a, sort of, swiss chalet style. Very ornamented and very monumental. 

As a child I always believed it was haunted by ghosts - and to be honest I think I still do. If I were a ghost I would for sure wanna live there at least. 

A lovely building. I really like it a lot. But then again, who wouldn’t like a big Disney-castle? 

ok, thanks,

Wow, people seemed to really like this little house. :) I’m flattered. Thank you for all the comments/likes/reblogs. :)

Anyway, I finished it up today, so have its floor plans and some interiors. It is literally just a 10x10 box with a gable roof, a couple dormers, and a deck on the front (because the beach is across the street from where this house sits), but there’s just something about the chalet style that’s cute despite its extreme simplicity. I also tend to like two-story spaces, being a bit of a claustrophobe in real life, and chalets lend themselves well to that. 

I just wish that it was possible to “paint” the inside of roofs, so that places like this, with a half-story loft, don’t have big white slabs of under-roof showing when you take pictures with the walls and roof up. In builds like this, you can’t use ceiling to hide it because that would defeat the whole purpose of the multi-story space. :) But beggars can’t be choosers, I guess. Have to work with what we’re given.

Now to decide…Do I want to just play the game or do I want to build more stuff….? Hmmmmmmm….
