You can make your own miniature cottage or house by simply drawing on your own scrap paper.
Here’s how to do it.
“I started out drawing it by hand, but then I started getting creative with it,” Ms Taylor said.
“I wanted to create something that I would enjoy and I wanted to make it look like a house.
I wanted it to look like an actual house, rather than just a drawing on a scrap paper.”
She said she was inspired by the “slim, warm” house at a local cottage that has been in the family for 20 years.
“It’s just like a very, very comfortable, warm, cozy little home.”
If you walk in, it’s very peaceful, very quiet, you can’t see anything but you’re surrounded by trees, it has a nice roof,” Ms Matthews said.
She said the house had been designed for children, with two bedrooms and a “good” bathroom.
It is built with a metal roof that is not removable.
The house has a kitchenette, a shower and two sinks, which is attached to a two-storey house.”
We love it because it’s really cozy, you don’t have to think about whether you want to cook a dinner, it is very much an island,” Ms Williams said.
Ms Matthews said she also wanted the house to be a home, not just a decoration.”
In my family, it was never a place where we’d go and just sit and watch television.
We would always go out and have a barbecue or go to the beach and go to dinner,” she said.
The house is a project for Ms Matthews and her husband, Daniel.
It was designed by Mr Matthews with help from his mother and grandmother, who live in Sydney’s inner west.
They built the house from scrap wood and cardboard.
Mr Matthews said they were inspired by a house at their local cottage in the 1980s.”
They have this house that was really pretty and had a big yard and a good backyard and they had a nice house on the outside and it was a nice place to live.
In the 1980, we started doing this project, we had this old house that had a little yard and it looked great and we just started drawing it,” Mr Matthews said, laughing.”
When we finished it, it wasn’t a house we could live in and I loved the idea that we could do something with it.
“He said the inspiration for the house came from the original house.
The family owns the cottage and the house, which they call their home.
But Ms Matthews has always wanted a family house.
She has spent the last five years trying to design one.”
My son has been wanting to go to school and he always has, but he’s not able to do that so we’re really struggling to pay for it,” she explained.
She said they have spent years researching the best way to make a house, and the first step was to buy a large house.
When she was younger, she was looking for a house that would fit her two young daughters, aged nine and five, who were both studying.”
And then I thought, well I can do that, but I can’t afford it and I can only afford to buy one and we need two,” she recalled.
So she went back to her dad and asked him to sell the house.
He said it was just a big house with a big garage.”
So I told him we can do it, we can sell it,” he said.
Ms Matthews and Mr Matthews decided to build the house with the help of friends.”
All the local builders and people that were involved in building houses, they helped us with the building and they said they wanted to do the house,” she recounted.”
But then I had to tell them, I have to buy it myself.
“Then I had a few people come and help me build it, then we had the money to buy the house and we started the process of building the house.”
“It has taken five years to get the house that I’m currently living in and it’s just one of those things that I couldn’t have been happier with,” she added.
A large family is a big step, she said, but she was not satisfied with the results.
“You don’t need a big family to have a really nice house,” Ms Tate said.
It took her two daughters four years to finish their school year, and she said she hopes to get her daughters to school this year.
