Thanks Liz. I hated to sell it but it helped out allot. Here is an update of the mini hut with some more added to it and some really small details. Not really 15% , just kidding around. Still a work in progress. The quarter is for size reference. Thanks for checking it out.

You do these so well!
I saw your auction's ending bid, are you thinking of making more for ebay?

Thanks for the compliment. The first one is always the hardest one to sell I guess. I am thinking of putting more out for sale but they take quite a bit of time to build. I had allot of folks tracking the auction and a number of bids. The winner of the first auction really enjoyed the hut and was a pleasure to deal with. So I guess the answer is yes. My latest build will be sold also. Thanks again.

Hut number two is done. This hut though smaller took a bit more time to build because of the small details. Now you can hold a small part of Polynesia in your hand. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful work, uncle trav! You have a real talent for this, and clearly a lot of patience.

I know how hard it is to do these. I did one in paper to use as a model for my painting on my gallery thread. It was harder to make the house than to do the painting. You are an architect! Wendy

uncle trav, these are really, really cool... I love the scale and attention to detail, and everything is in perfect proportion....

Oh and definitely, a light would be cool..

Thanks TikiKirby. Wendy that painting is awesome and I love the model.
Here is a new hut I am starting. A bit of a different style than the last ones so it's kinda learn as I go.

Hut number two went to a good home down in sunny Florida where yesterday the temp was near eighty. Here in Michigan as I type this it is -16 degrees. I decided to add a door to the new hut so you can lock up your miniature rum supply at night.

Cool, I like the door, keep 'em coming...

But to be honest with you any respectable miniature rum thief could probably find another way or two into the hut.....
