“Have you ever looked at a super old barn or dilapidated house and thought to yourself, “If that thing could talk…”? When we get our lumber, I think about how someone once put all those square head nails in the beams with their hands and a hammer – no power tools, no fancy nails, no big box store to source from – just blood, sweat, and tears. I have to incorporate the old nails, the swatch of paint that’s barely hanging on, and the measurements that someone wrote inside the beam.

Photographs of the interiors of miniature paper houses by Cathy Cullis. From the item listing:
“A few years ago I built my first paper house - just a small side-project for my own pleasure. Since then my paper houses have become several and my interest in interiors has developed into a photography project….
