So in the real world that house is worth $400,000. With all the detail you put into it, it doesn’t surprise me that you have that much into it. Cool project by the way.

greg, actually the house was 1/6 scale so that would make a real house $2405.52

(somehow that don’t seem right) lol

but then again there was no plumbing, no water hookup, no electrical, no septic system or hookup, no stair railings, no appliances, no cabinets, no back wall, and no land so i guess it’s possible. lol

I have been building (I should say finishing, since I bought a kit and have basically painted/stained and assembled it) for over a year. I am so ready to finish up and get my work space back so I can get into “real” woodworking. Hopefully I can put the final couple of trim pieces on tomorrow. Then I gotta figure out what to do with it.

Roger -

I guess that if you want to scale it up to actual size, you would have to multiply by 6 in each of the three dimensions (6X6X6 = 216). That gets you to $86,598.72.

It is funny to think about it in that way.

chuck… never thought about the 3D way of thinking. 86K don’t sound that far off. lol

ben… i said earlier i had to figure out what to do next now the the dollhouse is gone and the garage is clean…

since i cleaned the garage i’ve had my bike torn apart and now i have a lawn mower to fix. it’s not always sawdust in my shop!

be careful what you wish for…..
