Triang No.77

COMPLETED HOUSE

And that’s it the No.77 is now complete, I am very pleased with myself. From a shell of a house fit only for the rubbish tip, I have created a Triang House good enough to live in again. I will put my Triang furniture in this, I also want to decorate it with reproduction Triang wallpaper, but that’s a job for another day. Most of the dolls houses I restore have been overpainted or full of woodworm, rust or have suffered water damage. This one had it all.

    Well after a lot of hard work and very few tools and space the restoration of my Triang No.77 is nearly finished. I think it looks great, it was in a very poor state and is nice to see it looking great again and now to complement it, i have put some lights in. Just some last bits to do.

      I would love to see a picture of your house, perhaps send me some pictures I could put on my site. [shedonthepond@gmail.com]

    That is brilliant. Hope mine turns out as good.

    Much ingenuity went into restoring the facade – looks like new. Seems like just the front door need sorting.

    1. Lee Higgins says:

      Yes the front door needs a letter box, door knob and knocker, not sure what colour it should be. I also need to find a single window to go next to the door.

        Hi Lee same here mine needs Letter box and single window for next to door but all seem to be wrong size. Did they have door knockers ?.

        1. Lee Higgins says:

          From other houses I have restored, it seems to be the smaller window [white frame] are fitted next to the door. I think it did have a door knocker. Original door fittings are quite hard to find, and quite expensive.
