This is what the model began to look like once we hung the elements from the inside of the frame.
We did not do any of the objects to scale and decided this looked more interesting.

As you can see here we mounted all the images onto foamboard to make them look 3d

We made many elements to hang from the inside of the frame such as chairs, books, fireplaces and picture frames which would show all the elements of the house we found interesting.
We created these buy mounting images onto foam board and hanging them by chains.

We wanted the exterior to look as through it had the same wood grain that is located around the house, we achieved this wood stained look using watered down brown acrylic to accentuate the grain on the timber.

On the inside of the frame we decided to show the wallpaper, I wanted the wallpaper to look as though it had deteriorated to replicate the true look of the interior of the house at this present time. Parts of the wallpaper are restored and so they are in tact, and parts of the walls are peeling and damaged. I achieved this look by doing image transfers using emulsion and a sponge

We decided that our model would reflect the detailed elements of Elizabeth Gaskell's house, such as the wallpaper and carpet patterns, the lamp shades and the servants bells. We decided to ignore scale and to focus on the elements of the house that we found the most interesting.
Our model began at creating a timber frame as you can see here
