How do you build a model house for a school project?

Hey,

I need to build a small model house for a school project. Any ideas? Perhaps, there's a kit to building model houses?

Thank you.
I want to try to build a very small victorian house--one that fit into a edium sized cardboard box! This will be a challenge.

There are kits, but could be pricey. Here's a home-made version that worked well for me:

For the base: Make the "yard" with a piece of plywood covered with a sheet of artificial grass (available at hobby shops). Pick up a few model trees if you like.

For a really professional look, buy the model windows and doors from a hobby or art store.

For the house, you'll need a set of plans to draw the exterior walls and roof pieces on a piece of heavy poster board. If none are on-line, a local surveyor might be able to give you a copy of a house plan to work with. A scale of 1/4 inch = 1 foot should work nicely. Cut out the windows/doors first, then the walls with an X-acto knife. (Be sure to cut window holes to fit the windows available, not the plan.) To create the look of siding, lightly score the wall pieces with parallel lines using the x-acto knife and a straight-edge. Paint the walls and let dry. Glue in the windows and doors. A piece of black paper on the backside of the windows will improve the looks. Set each wall up and glue the corners together. Pieces of heavy poster board painted grey will make good porch, sidewalk and driveway slabs. The roof pieces will take a little trial and error to get right, but when they fit, glue on some colored sandpaper to create the look of shingles, then attach to the walls.

If you have railings or posts, small lengths of balsa wood can be easily cut. Paint after assembling. Slightly thicker pieces make good gutters and downspouts.
