  3. I was a member and attended a national house party in Kansas City some years ago. As a newbie, I was totally embarrassed. Nowhere in the info did it say that it was customary to bring small items to exchange with the other 7 members at your table at the big dinner. I was caught empty-handed and was not made to feel welcome. I never bothered renewing my membership.

  4. Looks great! Don't forget about the fast food drink carriers, they make great stones too.

  5. I haven't built any of these, but the average depth of the porches on the houses that I have built is 3-4 inches so you can probably just subtract that off of the total measurement from the dollhouses pages to approximate the room sizes.

  6. I have only built the Shadybrook Cabin, but it's ceiling height is between 8 1/9 and 9 inches high for the lower level and the loft above is about 7 inches at the peak. You just glue the floor supports in so you have some flexibility on how high you want the ceiling to be. It's fairly spacious inside. I gave it a complete second floor and put in a small flight of stairs and still had plenty of room. I can't speak specifically to the other ones, but most of the smaller houses that I have built have ceilings that are 8 to 9 inches high.

  12. My husband is not into dollhouses. He doesnt participate in their builds or decorations. Hes just not interested at all. He does like the technical part of it, like me keeping a blog of the builds. For some reason that does fascinate him but nothing else. Thankfully, he doesnt say anything about me keeping my houses around my real house. Its just like keeping any other type of decor around your house that you like to collect or look at. He is proud of my creations and likes to show them off to interested visitors. He is also happy that they bring so much happiness to me. Some people coll
