New images added March 2015


Here is a sketch of what the building would look like if I were creating the actual building.
STEAMPUNK HOUSE
A rough rendering of one facade of the building and an attempt at depicting
architecture with a slight flavor of ancient Egypt.

Facade of
                  Steampunk House

This will not be built. The actual structure will be a faux apothecary chest.
One will open the "drawers" (actually doors) and look into each room.


Here is the exterior structure with the doors finished.
To see more details on how I constructed this, go to
overview and featured items.
  Faux
                  Apothecary chest is actually a doll house.
The "chest" is painted black with several red undercoats to give it a nice distressed appearance as it becomes banged up, which it will! 


 Tiny spring catch.
The faux drawers (viewing doors) are held closed with tiny springs I made from memory wire and  tiny beads.  They can act as plant or birdcage hangers in the rooms when the viewing doors are closed.



Here is an image of the jewelry findings I used to make the spring catches for the "drawer" doors:
beads and memory wire
Tiny gold beads with square cross sections and gold plated spring steel.
I cut a groove in the door and recessed the bead--this did not work perfectly, but I'll tidy it all up when I finish the insides of the doors.


 The mini light switch mechanisms.
This image shows how the lighting will be operated.  I made push buttons (see image below) that will acivate the switches place on the inside of the frame.
