When I had first started working in the MicroMiniature scale, I found this darling little log house kit. Pat had often asked for a miniature log cabin, so I decided to give this one a try. This was the first kit I attempted after I'd actually learned a little bit about working in this scale ("little" bit being the operative word here).

When I got it completed, Pat was excited. He decided it looked somewhat like the Ponderosa, although I don't quite see that. So, here it is, my little log house and my early attempts at making things micro.

Kinda looks like the Ponderosa, huh? Grandma and Grandpa on the porch, talking to their grandson.

All the bricks were cut individually by hand from egg cartons.
