Back in the late spring my cousin called me to see if the offer to use my shop was still open and could I help him with a project! I said of course it would be fun! About 18 years ago he fell from some scaffolding and broke his back. Paralyzed from the mid chest down he only gets around in a wheelchair. Since we both have granddaughters he thought we both could build dollhouses for them for Christmas. His wife found a plan she liked and so we would build two dollhouses just alike except for floors, paint, wallpaper, etc. 1/12th scale. We started in late September thinking that would be lots of time! Although they both got them on Christmas they were not done until New years! Way more work than either of us anticipated. All three floors are on separate switches!
