I started by moving the Barn onto the windowsill next to Cockleshell. It looks just right there so I moved the flats off and will be getting another little house the same size as Cockleshell to go the other side. It makes it feel like a little street so this will be East Quayside!
I must have moved every house yesterday trying to get the layout right but however I did it I had one house too many!! I really wanted to make the flats into a dept store but I just can't fit them in! It would mean losing another house which I just can't do! For now they are emptied out awaiting their fate!
I love this shot it looks like you are looking down the street! I toyed with the idea of making Butterfly (the lilac one on the end) into a Christmas house and putting the dept store there instead but in the end I couldn't take it out its too much part of the village!
I made a nice little area behind the Bistro. I moved the pergola sideways so I could open the door of Butterfly properly. I laid some mosaic stone style lino down and created a little plaza so now Ernie has somewhere nice to sleep. I will eventually make some little steps to link the 2 levels together.
As I took the flats out I had to empty them all out. I moved the ground floor into the lower floor of Barnacle so now it has 2 holiday lets!
It worked quite well as it was the same colour scheme.
Stacey and Fred have moved back into Anchor cottage. Stacey is secretly pleased she wasn't getting much business over the other side of town!
The village also has a new arrival! This is Arthur! He's actually for my next project but I couldn't leave him out on the street like that! Rose was kind enough to lend him a seat. I hope she doesn't regret it!
