this was a late idea for a christmas gift. it was hastily done, but overall turned out alright. i made it out of MDF and pine. it was for barbie dolls, and they are around 12” tall on average, so i wanted them to have plenty of room. i would have added real windows in the front, and maybe a door, but simply didn’t have time. my wife and I stayed up all christmas eve night painting. so worth the effort, just wish i’d had more time with it.

G’Day Wrightly, What a top job on the dolls house.
I did a similar size for barbies when my girls [x3] were little using 4’ high book shelf.
There will be hours of fun, play and imagination in the gift.
Cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie
