I found a drawing of a French chateau on pinterest that I’m making for the next Halloween house. It has some really cool features that I am anxious to work on.
This is from an old French book that you can find on Google. I tried to find an example of the house, but I couldn’t find an actual house that looks like this.
I will make it more Halloween-like by using dark colors – black roof, grey plaster for the main body of the house and distressed white brick on the sides of the chimney and the house. Unlike my last 2 houses, I have not designed the base yet. I will probably make a stucco wall to go around this house.
Here is my simplified drawing.
I figure the 2 hardest things will be the eyebrow dormer and the conical roofs on the turrets. In order to make the turrets adhere to the house, they are basically semi-circular with a flat back to sit on the front.
I’m going to experiment with making a weather vane on the top maybe with a witch.
That’s the current plan. We’ll see how it goes.
