Welcome to the Greenleaf Miniature Community! In this section you will find information on the benefits of joining our community and a walk though of the registration process.
We hope you enjoy your visit with us and decide to become a member! This forum will not be visible once you log in.
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! 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.
I recommend wood glue for shell construction and tacky glue for gluing on trims, siding, etc. I've also used The Ultimate for construction, it's a nice strong glue that dries clear: https://www.hobbylobby.com/Crafts-Hobbies/Basic-Crafts/Glues-Adhesives/Crafters-Pick-Ultimate-Glue/p/21770
I'm not sure how well wood glue works on MDF (if your house is MDF).
Is the door a kit door that has been pin hinged, or is it one of the Houseworks doors?
If it has a separate frame (like a Houseworks door) you could try popping out the whole thing. Otherwise, if you can't cut the pins, you might need to destroy the door to get it out, and then replace it. If you wiggle the door around near the pins you might be able to splinter the wood enough to free it from the pins. Or you could get aggressive and punch it.
