Well, just as the Halloween Holiday should.... it has been putting spooky mansions and long dark hallways on my mind! Constantly!
My husband will back up my story that for the past few nights (after Bella has gone off to dreamland) I have been sitting in front of the mansion just staring and thinking! I have already got most of the main structure of my Alison Jr constructed. And my husband got me the 2 room addition by Real Good Toys that is made for the Alison Jr. and I have that put together as well. But for me something was missing.
Besides deciding to completely redo the interior of the 2-room-addition, I feel like I need just a little bit more space in those two rooms. So I have been planning and scheming and sketching... and here's what I have.
The Alison Jr. main house has the red tint and the 2-room addition as the blue tint.
So I have planned out an L-shaped hallway to wind in between the main house and the Addition. This hallway will allow several things... more of a separation for Gomez and Morticia's room, room for a second windy staircase to the 3rd floor and wall space so I can hang several iconic paintings to make the place truly Addams!!!
My brain still runs a little bit on Architecture terms so I did a few elevations. If you are used to reading blueprints you can probably figure out all my sketching. But I just wanted to show you where I am going! Any opinions... ideas... things I didn't think of?
I am now in the process of putting measurements to the crazy sketches (the not fun part) and will hopefully start cutting out wood pieces soon!
Also I wanted to leave you with a couples pics of Bella roaming through the pumpkin patch... I just couldn't resist you know!
