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.
No matter how many houses we go on to build, that first one always holds a special place in our hearts. Do you have pictures to share or a story to tell about your first dollhouse? Here's the place!
(Please don't use this forum for building/decorating questions, even if you're working on your first dollhouse! Those types of posts should go in General Mini Talk or in Questions About A Particular House in the appropriate subforum. This category is *only* to share pictures and stories about your first dollhouse.)
Come see what our community has been up to... and join in yourself!

Without a doubt, these areas are a great wealth of information for all skill levels!

This is Khang. I am currently a masters of accounitng student at UAB. I built a doll house 4 years ago, made a lot of mistakes, and decided to give up. Just last Saturday, I went to a dollhouse store in Birmingham, AL. The store was amazing. I was super inspired, so I went to Hobby Lobby (3 different stores) and to find the Victoria's Farmhouse, and I got the last one. (I wonder if HL is getting rid of their dollhouse section?).
It has been a week that I have gone crazy on finishing the dollhouse. It is so hard to stop. (Does it happne to you?). I am building the house w
Erin, you can make new windows from 1/8" basswood, which cuts easily with a utility knife and cork-backed steel straight edge. Hobby Lobby used to carry the miniature millwork for window frames, baseboards, etc; if they no longer have it I think Micro Mark still does. I almost wish my mother had given mine away for some neighbor child to play with, instead of putting it in her leaky S FL garage for the cockroaches, mice and silverfish to destroy.
I looked at your photo album- your house looks great!
I am going to keep my mine vintage because I was gifted some antique (Strombecker?) furniture, and it looks really nice together.
But it is going to need some work. Do you have any tips for restoring it?
