Pippi´s house, day 1

By spotogspindel | October 8, 2014

For the theatre show Pippi in Haugesund Theater, opening November 1st, I am making a little house.


Ok, so this is the wooden skeleton of the house. It´s about 4 feet tall, and to make it look like a proper children´s book house it needs some work. We´ve already twisted most of the angles, to make it look crooked, nd bigger than it actually is.


I´ve gotten a pile a book-binding cardboard, and am covering the  whole house almost in this. It will make it so much more credible as a house, and give me a lot of extra help for free once I start painting 🙂


The chimney is an exception. I want it to look like it´s bricks, so I am covering it in plaster. No bricks yet. They might come. Or I might just paint them on. We´ll see.


At the end of the day today. It does´t look like I´ve done much. But I have figured out the angle and sizes of both the panels on the walls and the slates on the roof. My electric stapler called it a day way before I wanted to go home, so I will have to get  new one before I continue.

This is already so much fun! I love building stuff! (Although in all fairness, John Olav actually built it, I´m just decorating it)
