Bellingham becomes a hunting/fishing lodge.  I purchased a Bellingham that was already built but with no paint/wallpaper/electricity..  I had a hunting/fishing lodge in mind when I purchased it ($75 - craigslist).  Yes, the ceilings are low (8 inches) and so I removed a portion of the second story floor to open up some living area below.  Built some piers along the front (surrounding the bottom portion of the existing porch posts).  I removed the existing small fireplace and made a bigger one, moving it over to center it under the opened-up area.  I really wanted to keep it 'woodsy' but hiding all the electrical lines (copper tape) meant I had to paint or wallpaper.  I've still got a little of that left to do.  I wish the top floor didn't have the roof line dipping down in front and I see others found a way to lift that dipping portion up.  Wish I'd checked that before I just finished fixing all the broken and missing shingles. 

  I love the little red kitchen cabinet set because it is just like what was in our first home (metal cabinetry from Sears). 

  This is such a well-built house.  My first (and only other) dollhouse is the Arrow 'Royal Dream', which I built from the kit.  It isn't nearly as sturdy as this one. 

  There're still a few things like the upstairs wallpapering and trims.  But this has been so much fun to work on!WIN_20151115_164223.thumb.JPG.1381a4c3c4
