Favorite Build Video: Miniature House

One of my closest friends loves to build miniatures and so she got me addicted to watching miniature build videos. I think I am addicted because they are relaxing to watch (somewhat ASMR-y) and once you start a video you quickly get sucked in and have to watch through to the end because there is a need to see how the finished product looks. I particularly like this video because I find the concrete pouring and bricklaying parts particularly satisfying to watch. From a video perspective, I think the editing is well done, and there is a good use of fast-forwarding through monotonous tasks. I also like how it includes all the small intricate details like the lighting, sliding doors, and wood flooring. My only complaint is the background music, which seems to set a slightly too intense mood for the project.

    Hey Fiona! This was a really interesting video. The thing that sticks out to me most is the patience required to tackle this project. Getting high resolution details on such a small scale is very impressive and must be super time consuming. I for one doubt I would have the patience to finish something like this.

    • I totally agree with you, I would never have the patience to build something so small and fiddly, but I find it highly entertaining to watch someone else build it.

  • Hi, Fiona,

    This is an awesome video! I love the process video of people making miniature things! I also posted a video of making a mini fan of a channel that’s specialized in doing miniature houses, you can check it out! : )


    • Thanks Xiang! I am glad there is another miniature build video enthusiast in the class 🙂
