Great fun and a nice job. The girls love them. First one I have seen posted here.I made one many years ago for my daughter. I used solid redwood with hand split shingles on the roof. It is one of the few things I have built on commission. After people saw my daughters I was persuaded to make several more. At the time (circa 1974) a doll house store owner said she could easily sell them for over $500. I think I got $300 each. They took a lot of time so I did not continue after the first batch. My daughter still has hers after 30+ years. I refurbished it for her a few years ago.

Les, you should post a picture of it I would like to see it.
I am sure I could sell them but I fear it would loose its fun if I had to make them.
Jim thanks for your kind comments. I am happy I have a place to showcase my projects.

I found the plans online, I don’t remember where. I think they are British though. The windows were purchased at Hobby Lobby. If you use oak ply for the floors and score lines in the floor it looks like a oak lank floor.

I will try to find a picture of the house I made. My daughter has hers “sealed” up and stored until she has a little girl (hopefully) or eventually a granddaughter. So she is not likely to get out just to take a picture.Pre-made windows are a help. That was the hardest part of making the houses I made. Mine were “working” double hung with plastic for the glass.
