  1. I think the bay window is a Carlson brand. I have used one before, and have another in my stash. If it is a Carlson, it should have a small 3-sided sloped roof. They pop up now and again on eBay. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/full-bay-windows-dollhouse-room-box-430540822
  2. I created a false wall and attic stairs for my first McKinley. The stairs turn into a wall, but with the door partially open, it appears they continue on up to the attic. The inspiration came from a Nutshell News article from YEARS ago
  3. Great Starting Price $1.00 on this Carlson's Old Time Store Kit https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-CARLSONS-OLD-TIME-STORE-KIT-Dollhouse-Miniature-Wood-1-12-In-Box/164489304532?hash=item264c5399d4:g:GJwAAOSw9rJfoeGe
  4. It's Back! This was the one originally listed for $1499.00, then continued to be reduced. They still think they have a gold mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/S-W-Craft-MINIATURE-WONDERLAND-Dollhouse-Lakeside-Manor-930-A-B-KIT-SET-NOS-NRFB/193734251738?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 A few rare Dura-Craft Kits are showing up lately.

  5. I entered my Vineyard Witch's Cottage. I was only doing it for fun. I do not expect anything from it. It is really difficult to show off your work with only allowing for one picture to be submitted.
  6. Here's another one for the file of "What are they thinking?" A Skilcraft 1970s Victorian kit, assembled, with some Concord furniture. It's obvious they have no idea of what they are trying to sell. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-29-x26-Georgian-Wood-Wooden-Doll-House-Furniture-Miniature-Furnished/303746229567?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Def1b0bb2f6594f868d587a47e8e92e8f%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D164434099566%26itm%3D303746229567%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&
  7. Dura-Craft VH600 Victorian. It does say they are not sure 100% complete, but it is a low price! https://www.ebay.com/itm/124367530397?ul_noapp=true

  10. All of the above and more time to devote to working on my minis. I have all these great ideas, but not the time to get them done! Real life seems to get in the way too much.

  12. There is a 1978 Skilcraft kit on eBay right now. I am not sure how much $$ you are looking for a kit. But these are nice kits. 1/4" plywood, tab and slot assembly. They are very easy to assemble and come with extras such as shingles (heavy paper) and siding (plastic sheets). These items can be upgraded, but it is a great start to get your feet wet and have a nice house. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-RARE-1978-SKILCRAFT-COLONIAL-WOOD-DOLLHOUSE-NIB-WITH-PLASTIC-TORN/143733075361?hash=item217728ada1:g:-ccAAOSwA31e1n3b This particular one has "Make An Offer" option.

  13. Hi Derrick! Welcome to the forum! I really like your plans for the build. 8 inches is large for a mini porch. When I did the Garfield bash, I made the porch 6 inches deep, and it looked so much in scale. This may take the porch off in front of the tower doing this. I had this happen on the Cape May, so I added a covered stoop/porch on the front entry. It was very common for the Itailnate style the kit is modeled. You can easily do that for your build. Your rooms sound very spacious, but also realize, like the porch, they may not seem in scale once built. The other recommendations

  15. Hello All! I working in the attic this week, I decided to clean out more of the house kits that I know I will never get to build, and really have no sentimental attachment to them. Just message me for details if interested. I am only charging actual shipping, and if it comes out less than I have predicted, I will refund the difference. All kits have been stored laying flat. The kits will be listed on eBay on Friday July 31st. The Pierce Kit - Open Box. this is actually a full kit and half of another one. It would be great for someone who would like to bash/add on to the
