That house is a Tudor Manor house and is still a work in progress but the story around it is that it was built by Lady Elizabeth's late husband's father in the Tudor era but is now owned by her son Sir Charles and his wife Lady Isabella. They spend most of their time at court, so Lady Elizabeth still runs the Manor with her servants.
The family isn't too worried about the servants quarters and the kitchens so they are still very much as they were when the house was built. The Grand Salon is much more fashionable and so very much more Jacobean/Stuart in style as is the main bedroom. The library and dining hall are still as they were in her husbands time.

It is still very much a work in progress - its enormous, 4 feet long, and has 8 rooms! This is the dining hall ;it has moved on a bit and now has a 'marble' floor and the Oak panelling on the walls is done but the room not done yet! Thumb of 2011-05-29/okus/679abb

I've done two other houses - a Georgian town house and a much smaller house a long time ago. Plus the Tudor Market Cross, which is being used, in Victorian Times, as the Town Clerk's office

The manor started life shaped as pieces of MDF when constructed it was looking like this: Thumb of 2011-05-29/okus/9a0ca7
It has taken a long time to get to the inside as all the bricks are individually stuck on and the roof tiles are individual pieces of card cut from breakfast cereal boxes and painted.

This is the front porch which shows the fancy brickwork better
