Another View of Interior Work in Process

With most of the dirty work completed, I moved the doll house into a second floor hallway so that I could continue to work on it while my daughter plays with it.  We tend to work on opposite sides of the house whenever possible.  I have to say she's been very patient with Daddy in the way for over a year now.

Thank you, Emerald!  I've enjoyed making the floors, despite the long hours its taken.  I think I could have done this in 1:1 scale in about as much time! ;)

Thank you both for the kind words!

Bugatari, I use strip wood from miniatures.com  I prefer the 1/16 thickness as it is easy to cut.  They only sell these two widths: http://www.miniatures.com/Strip-Wood-12-Inch-Width-P17850.aspx and http://www.miniatures.com/Strip-Wood-14-Inch-Width-P17847.aspx but you can always double up or cut the pieces to smaller widths as needed.

I stain a bunch of lengths at a time; two light coats followed by a light sanding and then one final coat waiting one day per coat to dry.  After installation, I touch up any bare edges with a tiny paintbrush and steady hand. ;)  I am also not afraid to rip up a section as I go if I find that things didn't align properly.  I use a tiny flat head screw-driver or a straight razor (carefully) to remove pieces that are glued and dried.

Have fun with your build!
