I finally got a chance to get a picture of this one, it left the shop so quick I never took a picture. It was built to replace another 20+ year doll house that had been modified in a similar fashion to collect donations at church to fund the Christmas in April project but was beginning to really show it’s age. Its a Real Good Toys kit that I added the back to enclose it and create the drop chute. If you’re planning to ever build one of these I can really recommend the products from Real Good Toys they have a very well made kit and while not cheap they definitely are worth the work.

Nice project but it is Deja vu…all over again for me to see it. About 35 years ago I made two very similar to that one from scratch out of solid Redwood. One was for my daughter and the second one was for a co-worker’s daughter and he paid for all the materials. They had 1400 hand split shingles on them. My daughter still has hers but as luck would have it she gave birth to two boys so it will have to set in the attic for another generation and she can hope for granddaughters.
