  1. Gosh..we should have exchanged emails. Lol. So did you buy the house?. I forgot to mention, if you go on my Garfield album you will see how I built it in two sections. Your hinge idea would probably work.
  2. Hannah, I'm sooooo sorry! I kept checking back to see if you had replied but didn't see anything. I could not get back on the site because they were having so many problems so didn't get your message until today. Unfortunately I was in a hurry and it was late when I took the measurements for you so didn't check to see if they added up. You are right, you have to add the 6 inches for the porch to the 14 on right side. You are missing the left side of the L which is 11 inches. Sorry, don't have the time to check my calculations but they are close. I have the house sitting on a piece of plywood that is 47 x 42 which gives me space of 10" on the left from the house, 4" from the front porch, 3" from house on the right, 14 1/2" from the right side of L shape and 5" from the back. I cut off the the right side of the L (3 rooms, 1st, 2nd, 3rd floor) and just glued a couple spots in order to build the house. When everything was done I took the two sections to the room I would display it in and then glued it back on and then put the roof and shingles on. It is HUGE HUGE HUGE. Please let me know whether you built it or not.
  3. So glad to "hear" they are doing an upgrade to their system and that we were notified. I sure hope they will do something about the time and frustration in loading pictures to the albums. I don't load pictures any more as I don't have the time it takes to load them.
  4. Hannah, did you check in the Greenleaf store here, as it shows the dimensions? I just measured mine which is not easy due to the porch and my landscaping. You will have to look at pictures so you know which measurements I took. I hope this helps: left side of the house (looking from the front it's left side), is 37 inches to the porch and add 2 1/2" for the front steps. The front measures 29 inches. The right side is in an "L" shape, left side is 14 inches and the right side is 17 inches. The back is 17 inches. I hope these are close enough to help you out.
  5. Good luck with your Garfield!! Hope you have a big room in your house when you have finished it. I cut the whole right hand section off and when I was at the shingling stage moved the two pieces downstairs and finished it. It would not have fit thru my doorways. I put it in a corner as it needed to be able to turn....big big big. lol
  6. My sister in law bought me the blue kit which turned out beautiful! Porcelain fridge, toilet and bathroom sink, long wires for the lights. I did change the sofa as the material included made the glue show thru. I knew she bought herself two kits that she would never do so she brought them with her when she flew up so I could do them for her. Imagine my SHOCK to find they were NOT 1:24 scale as advertised. The yellow house must be a 1:48 and the fairy house 1:144. I would not recommend the yellow house. There was no fridge and the bathroom toilet and sink were made of wood and not sure I can wire it as there are only two inches of wire to work with. Fairy house is adorable and fortunately not too many pieces to glue together. In appreciation she sent me the pink house kit and it is beautiful as well. Toilet and bathroom sink ceramic (?), but weird...no fridge BUT TWO OVENS. An oven in the stove and a wall oven. I made the wall oven into a fridge. Do they not have fridges in China?? Anyways, just wanted to give anyone interested in these kits a heads up that only the blue and pink ones are 1:24 and good quality.
  7. Oops, I meant the $10.99 metal once is under the rather large Harrison. If it can hold a house that big it would be good for the Beacon Hill. Good Lord....too many dollhouses.lol
  8. I bought two from miniatures.com. The first one was wood for $46.00usd (converted to Canadian it's really expensive) plus the shipping, and I used it under my huge Garfield. I wasn't paying that price again so bought another one from them for $10.99usd which is under my Beacon Hill. I like the cheaper one as it turns much easier. I buy most of my miniatures from them when they have their 20% off sale: $46.00 $10.99

    I just wanted to say the quality of your work is amazing!!! You are extremely talented and do such a wonderful job. Thank you for sharing your pictures.
  11. I asked my friend who had put it in her garage sale and she thought she bought it at Walmart or some other cheap store and that it wasn't expensive. If it was Hallmark surely they would have their name on it. Sorry I couldn't get you more info
  12. Hey Erin! Sorry, just saw your post asking if I had pictures. My camera doesn't take the greatest pictures. It definitely looks better in person, but here you go!
  13. I think I have almost the same house I bought for $5.00 at a garage sale. Looks the same on the outside but mine on the inside is beautifully decorated.
  14. Thank you so much for sharing. Wow
  15. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwe, I would LOVE IT but unfortunately I am way way up in northern Canada. Too bad you weren't in Seattle which is still far away as I have a friend wintering there and will be back up in APRIL. I hope you give it to someone who will do it justice. Your a sweetheart to give it away!!!
