Forgot to ask, is there somewhere I could find the template for your house? I would love to make one with my grandchildren (without the matches lol)

This is nicely done, but it seems a bit cheesy to have the matchsticks just stuck to paper, from a computer print-off no less. Your rustic looking model house is bastardized by your digitally dependent production process. Why not make the whole thing out of matches, so that there's some engineering involved, because currently the matches are just a skin for what is essentially a cardboard house.

I completely agree with shooby that its a bit cheesy to just have matchsticks stuck on printed paper

msolek, thanks for sharing. I think it looks wonderful. What about a little grey in the smoke maybe? Is there a place where I could download the house blueprints? shooby, try and "lighten " up. Why don't you make one and do an Instructable, then we can all see your engineered version. We have a "be nice" rule at Instructables. This is a community of encouragement and support.

Um, are you sure your mom will be happy to know that you burnt 750 matchsticks?

That is Really cool! I feel like I'm cheating though, because of the cardboard base! Great instructable! :P

Float it out on a lake, with some rubbing alcohol. Then drop a match, and stand back!

Do you know a French movie called "Le Diner de cons" ? (don't know the English title, don't even know if it has been translated in english)
In this movie, one of the character is the "stupid" man and what he likes over all is making stuff with matches !
Very famous in France and sooo funny movie !

OK, I got the international title : (have a look here)
The Dinner Game

Anyway, your matches house is pretty nice looking

I hate to be the bad guy here but this isn't an Instructable. This is a look at my video. You could use some steps like and introduction, materials and tool listing, etc. Nice little project though.

Sorry msolek, I've been busy and haven't gotten on this site for a few days.

Anyhow Mr. Rig It, [ Please read this]

Thanks :)

Mr. Rig It (author)FrenchCrawler2007-12-26

PS: Msolek, nice job on the house and great video showing what you did :)
