Love fairytale cottages? Then this brand new quarter scale kit is just for you!

 Woodcutter's Cottage is a magical dwelling, inspired by the fairytales and old storybooks.  Internally, the cottage has one ground floor room featuring a unusual 'cupboard bed' and chimney breast.  A little ladder leads up into the quirky attic room featuring oval windows.  The exterior of the cottage includes a whimsical wood store and an externally breasted chimney stack.

The kit includes: 'full colour' step by step instructions, pre cut carcass, external vernacular detailing, door, windows, cupboard bed, glazing and much more...

Our unique Woodcutter's Cottage Kit is priced at only £22.99!

 To paint my Woodcutter's Cottage I used the following colours from Petite Properties’ paint range:


Floorboards & interior woodwork: Old Beams, Wood Stove & Wishy Washy Stone

 Interior woodwork: Old Beams, Mucky Paint & Wishy Washy Stone

Interior walls: Wishy Washy Stone


Stonework (on chimney stack): Dirty Stone Mortar, Stormy Skies, Top Of The Milk, Mucky Paint & Grandma’s Green

Exterior beams: Stormy Skies & Itchy Blanket

Exterior plaster: Wishy Washy Stone & Mucky Paint

To tile the roof I used 1 pack of Petite Properties' Wonky Roof Tile strips - £5.99 per pack... (But you could easily make your own - see 'Create Exterior Finishes')
