This is a project that I expect to take years! It is an apartment building with 4 identical floor plans to decorate in different ways, plus a similar attic apartment, a boiler room, and 3 basement level shops. And it is all with a twist because the actual structure will be a faux apothecary chest. It won't look like a dollhouse on the outside. One will open the "drawers" (actually doors) and look into each room.
The apartment floor plan is a cross between a "shotgun house" and a "railroad apartment" (each apt. is one room deep and each room is accessible only through another room). The rooms are shallow so that each can be used to create a stage-set vignette of some aspect of the life of the occupant which will be viewed through a door. There will be a light-well behind the rooms with a "daylight" light source and electric lights in the building.
The "location" of the building is a Steampunk San Francisco that was settled by British-Egyptian pirates. The occupants include lower-middle class families, young professionals, elderly, and immigrants. People with strong work ethics but who lack the income to live in less cramped housing.
