In 1999, Mark Turpin unveiled Chateau du Bois and launched a new series of one-of-a-kind miniature houses and structures. Mark expanded his initial plans for houses and mansions in miniature to include miniature art museums, shops, orangeries, conservatories and room settings. Mark's work is now displayed in private collections and exhibited in museums.
For twenty-two years we have welcomed to this site miniature collectors and enthusiasts from more than seventy countries. The volume of work contained herein demonstrates Mark's imaginative and innovative designs and craftsmanship.
