"Restoration Nightmares"

Channel 4

I was asked to make a massive dolls house like model for the second series of Channel 4 "Sarah Beeney's Restoration Nightmares" with the idea of taking a camera through the corridors to the feature rooms as they do with computer graphics in "Grand Designs". The house measures in total thirteen feet long by six feet wide. The budget was very small, but the concept was a very basic dolls house as opposed to a scaled detailed model, I had to make big compromises where the roof was concerned as the inside was the most important part of the project.

Only the rooms featured in the show needed skirting dado and opening doors.The model was so big I had to take photos in the yardThe model had to come apart for cameras to film the feature rooms
