I made this dollhouse for my oldest girl’s third birthday. She just loves it! And her little sister just loves to eat it, as of now.
Used these plans as a guide: http://suttongrace.blogspot.com/2011/01/mod-doll-house-plans.html
Thought 42” inches across the bottom was too big for our spaces in the house, so I divided every side by 24/42. With the balcony it is actually longer than 2 feet, but not by much. The floor are around 8-9” tall, so somewhere between 1:12 and 1:24 on the dollhouse scale I believe.
The wood is just 1/4” mdf. I didn’t have time to make the furniture or shutters. The furniture all came from a pack I found on Amazon. I am making her some Christmas items like a tree for the house, and other holidays as well eventually.
The spiral staircase is a 1×2 piece of poplar cut into stairs with a 1/4” dowel going down the middle. I realized after the fact there wouldn’t be enough room for normal stairs over there, so the spiral staircase is working nicely.
