I built this dollhouse for my first grandaughter Elli’s 7th birthday. I made all of the molding and many of the enhancements to the original kit. It was a timely project, but totally worth it. Definitley a labor of love.

Wow Mike, that is a very intricate Doll House! The moldings must have been quite a challenge to make. It is a fantastic job on the entire house and I am sure she will treasure it always.

Mike,

What a lovely home! I can only imagine how much work it was. I made one for my granddaughter about ten years ago and it took me forever! . . . and it was not even close to the mansion that yours is. All of your details are just perfect.

All I can say is WOW, Mike. Very well made, she’s a very lucky little girl. I’m sure that she’ll love it! I can’t wait until my daughter is a bit older so I can make her one. Every time that I bring it up, the idea get shot down by my better half. Where did you get the kit that you started with?

Spectacular house!!

What scale is it?

I’m planning on making one for day daughters but am really struggling with what scale to use. 1:12 seems most common and thus the easiest to furnish, but would result in a HUGE house!

Have your say...
