I started making a scale model of my house last night. I’m surprised it took me only one night and one sheet of foam core. I measured wherever I could and used an online scale calculator to scale it down to 1:64.

This first version will help me to fine tune measurements and fitment so I can make a better version. I got the roof down pretty darn close considering I couldn’t measure it. I used Google satellite view to help me. I’ll probably give this one to my toddler once I am done with it.

I am notorious for taking a long time to finish projects so you guys probably won’t see the finished diorama any time soon.


What’s more amazing is that I did this with a dull xacto knife.


I've got several windows and doors I need to cut out.
