Topic tags/keywords: question

I had built a table for a charity auction to benefit a local family who was going through a rough and subsequent unsuccessful fight over cancer. I heard that the daughter was going to have a doll house made by the late father. I am taking upon my self to make sure that this little girl gets one. Has anyone here had any experience designing or building doll houses? The tool box I made for the son was in me realm of expertise. Doll houses are not. Thanks for looking.

I have built two of the Real Good Toys doll houses and the kits are great for sensible assembly. THey are essentially for the crafter and not the woodworker, so there are several situations where they reccomend taping parts and waiting for glue where I just reached for my pin nailer and moved on. They are in two sizes 1” scale and 1/2” scale. I built the 1” scale for my daughters and it was the right size for little girls to play with. The 1/2” scale one I built to donate to our church after converting it into a Christmas in April donation box, which I put a back onto and added a chiminy which was the drop slot for donations. I needed extra shingles to do the back roof and Jennifer at real good toys was able to help me and they donated a bag of shingles to my cause. You might be able to reach out to her and get some sort of help with the kit who knows… PM me and I’ll give you her e-mail
