I thought that I would make doll-house for my great Grand Daughter, it is a replica of the log home that I built about 25 years ago for my wife and I. The house is to doll scale 1” = 1’, and it is about 24” wide by 30” long, it is made so that it can be taken apart and stored, largest piece being about 12’ wide by 30” long. I even made the logs to scale of what I used in building my log house. Like I have always told people who look at what I make ” I should have taken shop and mechanical drawing instead of typing and office machines.

You’ve been suckered, and I know that from experience.

Great looking doll house. How many hours do you have in it?

That is beautiful. Even better when she can tell her friends her grandpa made it.

Thats super cool man. I like how the wood looks a little weathered. Looks awesome. I would Take tin foil and a long spring to make surogated sheet metal for the roof that would be cats eyes. Do you brother.

This will be a wonderful doll house for your Grand Daughter. She will love it and it will end up being a fine heirloom when she grows up.

It’s more than only a toy. Absolutely fantastic house model. It’s impressive how realistic look it has.
