Mini chatter of all sorts takes place here. Have a question about tools or kitbashing? Got a tip for electrifying or interior decorating? Want to share pictures of the new bedroom set you just bought (or made)? It's all fair game in here!
Having a specific problem with a house? Someone who has worked on the same house might be able to help. Please mention the name of the house in the title of your post, so others who have built that house are sure to read it.
Come see what our community has been up to... and join in yourself! Follow along from start to finish as other members from the community build your favorite houses or join in on our bi-monthly Mini-Swaps where members strut their mini stuff. Without a doubt, these areas are a great wealth of information for all skill levels!
Sales and promotional posts should be made here. (Miniature-related only, please!) This applies to retailers posting links to their websites, as well as to individuals selling dollhouses or other miniatures, either privately or on eBay. Trades for items or services can also be proposed here.
Once you've built the center piece (3 story fireplace) the rest goes pretty quick. You'll build the two end pieces separately and then attach them at the end, so those can be built simultaneously if you're in a hurry :-)
I started with the Greenleaf Travel Trailer, which went pretty quick, and isn't really a house but it gave me a good expectation for building a house. So then I built The Arthur - I think The Arthur, Orchid or Buttercup are great starters. In all honesty, Real Good Toys kits are easy to put together, but they do a lot of the work for you so what's the fun in that? Plus they're not as easy to modify - or as they say "kit bash". My advice for resales though - try to only buy a kit that's in an unopened box if you can.
I use Aleenes glue for items that are specifically meant for a certain house, and a certain spot. Especially wall hangings. But mostly I use quakehold museum wax. I try not to "rob" my houses and move stuff from one to the other, but sometimes it's necessary so I always want to have that option.
