I love how chaotic it feels in terms of it's supports, it feels like almost something out of Miyazaki's mind in terms of the character and details of it all. My favorite part is the stairs and how they wrap around the support, it really helps complete the entire thing and adds so much more realism to the piece.

I do have one question though: how did you get it all to stay together?

Thanks so much for the kind words.  It's held together with just wood glue.

This is fantastic. It has a very surreal element in it (the 'pillar') which I very much like. It seems like the house was built upon parts that where falling down of it, like a flow of wooden water.
A fantasy-house where magic happens.

Hello there.Whether you get this or not.I think you have a very special talent.You are just wonderful.I'm glad I found you sooner or later.I wanted to ask some questions that I'm just longing to know;
First off,How much money do you spend on these toothpicks in one year?LOl.
Do you glue these or is they're something else you use in place of glue?
How much time does it take you? (Months,Days,Weeks)
One more thing,Can I rent this house?Lol.
I love the shapes,Detail and all.Don't color it unless it is your desired to because I think the original color of the wood is just great.
