My sister-in-law purchased this dollhouse over 15 years ago at a garage sale. It was mostly constructed and included almost all of the original pieces to complete it. She just never had the time to work on it. She asked me if I would like to finish it as a gift for her grand daughter for Christmas 2014. Sight unseen, I answered in a heartbeat! This is my first dollhouse, but something tells me it's not my last.
