      >During a vacation in southern France (Cote d'Azur) we found model houses
      >produced maschine-made by plaster looking nice but missing the distinctive
      >style. In our last vacation in the Toscana we saw similar houses buyable

      >a lot of money. Myself making model building just since decades I got a
      >fascinating idea. We took a broschure from there for inspiration and now we
      >build a whole town made of more than 40 houses. Each one has its own
      >character und special extra. Together they make a magnificent picture
      >although one can stand each house for itself and it looks fantastic.

      >All houses are made of pine-tree. They are sawn with my own hands, shaped,
      >cut, polished and roughcasted with surfacer. Finally they are polished
      >again. Following they are painted by my wife withwater-colour and fixed
      >with
      >clear varnish. The backside of the houses is not roughcasted for getting
      >visible the structure of wood but grounded with the colour of the front.
      >Chimneys and steps are sawn of smallest slats. Awnings are mostly sticked
      >on. Itself caves and passages are constructed.

      >All houses have a depth of 2 cm. The breadth varies between 2 cm and 6 cm;
      >the height varies between 3,5 cm and 6,5 cm, only the towers of the church
      >are about 10 cm high.

      >The price of each house shall be between EUR 15 - 20. When ordering a whole
