To my readers – I am so sorry I skipped November! I was trying to have at least one blog per month and I missed my goal last month. So I will make two posts before the end of the year!
The roombox that is the subject of this post was designed by Jon Fish and Larry Osborn (The Guys from Texas). You can see many examples of their work on past blogs by Goodsam Miniature Showcase and on pinterest. They are well known for their wonderful resin molded architecture pieces, detail and accuracy. They are also very generous with their knowledge. Taking a class from them was an awesome experience. Unfortunately we lost Larry this year (2019) but I think Jon is still doing miniature work.
The lovely lady who had taken the workshop and completed the original roombox was downsizing and donated this room to S.A.M (Society of American Miniaturists). I snapped it up at their 2017 auction. What I love about it is the hidden room (behind the bookcase) and arched front. It is also electrified and has a very nice fireplace. Here is a photo of it when I bought it.
