Art nouveau house

Hi everyone!

I'm still in the progress of making cabinets for the sofa, well, to be honest, the parts are on the workbench, and I haven't touched them in weeks.  The reason for it is quite good - I started building a house! :)  At first, I was thinking about roombox, something small, something that would be good for the sofa. And it would be art nouveau again.
Somehow, I'm building the whole house, all in art nouveau style! Isn't it fantastic? I'm making it from scratch, the first plan in Sketchup looked like this:

And it's really huge, I'm using 18mm plywood, so the walls have realistic thickness. It has four rooms, and the size of it about 90cm long and 40cm deep. That's how it looks at its current stage:

And from the back:


I'm super excited, the whole project was started only because of the sofa I made :)
Also  I'm practicing making plaster moldings:


I hope to use them for some rooms too. Besides, I tried carving on plaster, and was really inspired - you can work with tiny details, it's a very interesting material to work with. Also I'm working on lighting  and chimneys now. Hope to show you the result pretty soon! :)

I love your house and I am very interested in your plaster carvings, keep in mind that inhaling the dust is dangerous, so wear a safety dust mask
