To illustrate how the pavilion adds outdoor living space, I made a 1:144 scale model of the Charming Cottage in an early dry fit, with a tiny roll of masking tape, the instruction sheet, and my notebook (with rounded corners :) open to some of my initial sketches. And plenty of back issues of dwell, for inspiration and research.
Since then, I’ve built a few more to refine the pattern and improve my skill. The first were cut from 1/16-inch basswood; this one is from 1/32-inch. I doubt I have the patience to paint or to make 1:144 furniture, but I guess I should make a model of the pavilion itself, just for that recursive view thing.
If you’d like to make one, let me know and I’ll send you my pattern.

I love this tiny cottage! :D
Like the way this messes with one’s sense of reality. The work-in-progress really bends the mind around what scale we’re in.
I LOVE your work! Brilliant!!! :D
I would really love a copy of your tiny cottage pattern. Thanks so much!!
