Love quirky cottages? Then this quarter scale kit is just for you!

 Robin's Nest is a little whimsical cottage, which like Woodcutter's Cottage was inspired by the fairytales and old storybooks from Bea's childhood. 

Internally, the cottage has one main room featuring an unusual mezzanine floor, accessed by a ladder.  

This kit is made exclusively from card and includes: 'full colour' step by step instructions, pre cut carcass, external vernacular detailing, door, windows, glazing, ladder and much more...

Our quirky Robin's Nest Kit is priced at only £12.99!
(Pictures show a constructed & decorated kit)
 A separate 'Simple Base kit' is also available - £3.00

This new kit is now available to purchase via our online shop

The kit above is shown fully constructed & decorated and below it is shown mounted on a landscaped base.

 To paint our Robin's Nest Bea used the following colours from Petite Properties’ paint range:


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

Interior walls: Dirty Stone


Exterior beams: Stormy Skies & Itchy Blanket

Exterior plaster: Dirty Stone & Mucky Paint

Roof tiles: Mucky Paint, Tony's Tandoori & Grandma’s Green

Front door: Post Box Red

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

I also used some of Petite Properties' Brick Paper - £1 per A4 sheet
