What a great collection! Someone is going to be very happy with this special collection of hand made houses.

Howard, this is the best!! They look so new and crisp, but have that awesome vintage feel. You've created the perfect little village!!

CHAPTER THREE...2021

House Number One -- Industrial Look

Greetings to all...

The other day, Maria, sent me a vintage photo of an industrial building and suggested it might be inspiration for another Ten Cent City house...and sure enough...it was just the creative fuel I needed...of course, I had to really squeeze and condense the features...but i believe my little version captures the basic look...

You can pick up the details regarding the 2" x 4" flat base from previous Ten Cent City patterns...same for the tinsel tree, door, windows and final finish...the pattern is in the PDF below the pictures...stay tuned...pictures of the completed house later...

Being a native Texan I must say the shape reminds me of the Alamo. :)

Yes...it does have that Alamo look...but I just looked at it again and thought...with just a few cuts the facade could look like one of the Dutch canal houses our forum friend, Lucy, had made...only in a much smaller size...

Howard,

That is funny that you mentioned the Dutch Canal houses. I am drawing a pattern for a new one right now.

I love this industrial Ten Cent City design. Very cool.

Update...2-13-2021...

Another Ten Cent City house is finished...I'll let the picture tell the story...

Please note...if any forum member sees a photo of a house or building...vintage or not...that might be a candidate for another Ten Cent City house...please pass it on to me...i'm always looking for inspiration...

Howard...
