little building co.

Miner's Cottage
Colonial Gable Cottage
Surry Hills Terrace


If you've ever dreamt of owning a Queenslander or a little Sydney Terrace, you can for less than $50. However, unless you harness the technology used in Honey I Shrunk The Kids don't expect to move in any time soon. Made from Queensland Maple and scaled at 1:100 the pint sized architectural models are the brainchild of the Little Building Co. Flat packed and easy to assemble the homes come with information about the iconic styles, location, method of construction, architectural details and historical anecdotes. There's even a QR railway station for train enthusiasts. My favourite is the Queenslander, yet the little miner's cottage is pretty irresistible too. Why are small things so cute!
