I built this 20 years ago for my daughters 8th birthday. It was from Real Good Toys. I assembled it, then did my custom things. The foundation was painted gray with beach sand mixed in to look like concrete, shingled the roof, built the porch swing and the box for the local newspaper. Inside I finished all the floors to look like hard wood, added floor molding door frames, window frames and window sills. Custom stairs with white risers, 1/16 oak tread, hand rail and spindles.

Nice job I built a couple dollhouses back two years ago and that’s what got me back into wood working and model building.

Looks great! And twenty years old. I built one twenty plus years ago. It didn’t survive.

Tommy, it is obvious that you have taken special care on this dollhouse because of all of the fine details that it displays and I imagine it is now considered a cherished family heirloom. Nice work.
