Trish Billard: Cottage at the End of the Lane

Trish exhibited these quarter scale houses at the NAME Sacramento Houseparty. Her description of the project:

“These three houses replicate the illustrations in “The Cottage at the End of the Lane, ” children’s dollhouse story by Elaine Mills. Debbie Young designed and built the kits and taught them as a series of classes. I bought the kits and altered them to even more closely resemble the houses in the story. All three houses have working lights powered from a battery pack hidden within the house. I made all the dolls. The crowded house alone has seventeen of them! Also made most of the animals.”

Trish Billard created these houses from Debbie Young’s kits based on the books, “A Cottage at the End of the Lane.”
