A few photos of the dollhouse I built for my gran daughter. 38” x 20” x 20” high. A few features are
hardwood floors,walnut stairway,all interior door & window trim as well as 1st floor base board in walnut.
I made all windows,doors & shutters -these can be purchased on line-but that takes away all the “fun”.
Last 2 photos show two rooms furnished and decorated(gran daughter’s mom is enjoying “helping” with
that). Thanks for checking out this project…..any and all comments welcome!!

Well Red as above and I can add also thats a neat as piece of work I must say!

The one I made for the granddaughters I didnt fit out, I left that to their Grandmother on their Moms side to do.

I can see from the smile it was a big hit. No kit out there beats a hand built house.

Cool! I have considered building my daughters one, but I don’t know if I will have the skill (or time) to do it right before they are too old for dolls! What a beautiful job. So detailed. I kinda want to move in.

Have your say...
