  1. A built Grandville in the Mobile, AL area for $70! https://mobile.craigslist.org/tag/d/fairhope-large-wooden-dollhouse/7193084590.html
  2. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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
  6. The window was a find on eBay a few years ago. It was from a NAME convention. I have another one in my stash of different colors. The colors in this one were perfect for this project. Along with the holes in it, so was more fitting for a bit of a shabby witch's cottage.

    Witch's Vineyard Cottage

    A "quick" build for me. Doing just a little bashing by upgrading the windows and door. I am adding the stained glass window I purchased off eBay some time ago. I am also adding a small 'add on" bathroom to the back of the house. I decided on a witch's cottage after finding some great Halloween pieces.
  8. So, after a year plus of a "quick build", it is finally finished. Since being furloughed because of Covid, I had the time to finish up the cottage. It was a fun build and I am proud of the way it turned out. My sister was visiting last week from Missouri, and when she saw it, she fell in love with it. She is not one for miniatures, but all she could do was stare at it and look at all the details. I knew then she had to bring it home with her. I really had no place for it. It was a labor of love, so who better to give it to!
  9. This has now been dropped to $1199.99. It's a bargain! Free Shipping Too! www.ebay.com/itm/193498109667
  10. A Grandville at a good price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/224046748741

  12. That's great! I look forward to seeing pictures of your progress.
  13. This is an Arrow Georgian Dollhouse. https://pin.it/2Ry0GyA
  14. I love how we do smoke and mirrors! The plastic glass insert on this door was scratched. So I took my xacto knife and made more "cracks" in the window. I really like how it turned out.
  15. That is from a 1980s Houseworks plan book called Oakbrook Manor.
