Each of our grandkids have received either a doll cradle for the girls or a building for the boys. This one ended up being a lot of fun to build because most of it had to be done with hand tools. My wife carved (using her dremel tool) and painted the chimney for me. I didn’t have a pattern.

G’Day “BigRich”, i think the boys got the better end of your workmanship out of the shed.
I’m sure the girls will be chasing you for a dolls house once they’ve seen how excellent the boys building are!!!!
Love this one, well done.
