  1. Hi Inga, Good Morning. May I ask where you cut the house to glue it back together. I have pondered this for quite a long time. But was not game to cut mine. I do think if we could cut it instead of gluing it, we could use a hook and eye. The small ones used for cupboards. To put it back together, so that it could but separated if we have to sell it or to move else where. If Dean could come up with a plan I think he would sell a lot more of them. I went to build it in my spare room and had doubts that I would be able to get it out through the doorway so that I could display it, I am not the only one who has had this problem. I had thought of separating it near the side door on the veranda and along the kitchen wall. I would really like your opinion on this matter?
  2. Hi, I do like your scene very much, hope we get to see more
  3. Hi Dreamer14, I`m sorry I did not ask you what part of your Garfield are you up to? Di
  4. Hi Dreamer14, I am building a Garfield and Yes I have put in different windows and doors. I am also moving the bathroom wall from the side of the staircase and moving it over about two and a half inches. Bathroom will be smaller but I will have a hallway so that the owners don`t have to walk through the bathroom to get to the library. It will also give me some vision into the front staircase area. I have drawn the bathroom interior onto paper and it looks fine to me. I am also thinking of adding a small room onto the back as it will allow the kitchen table to sit back into it and not clutter the kitchen ( instead of the little bay window that is supposed to be there). I have wallpapered and made all of the curtains, so I`m ready to start to work on the lighting and the gluing up of the walls. Hope we can discus our houses together. Di
  5. I used, Spray Easy Paint and Prime by British Paints on most of mine (Garfield) and I had no problems. As I`m not sure if they sell this brand where you are I`m pretty sure thay would have something similar.
  6. I have made the same house, although mine was made in China and had no name. Measurements are roughly the same as the Greenleaf Tennyson. I have just read that someone is going to trace these parts for you. Mine was in a similar box but mine was green and very basic instructions on back of box.... I think it was only sketches and numbers, this was my intro to dollshouses I didn`t know anything about them untill then. Hope you get to finish your house and as you can see from the photos you can make it as fancy as you like, Robyn`s is beautiful, don`t you think
  7. Hi Louis, Havana Holly is quite right your photos would be a great inspiration to the rest of us. I was looking at this photo and I was imagining all of the things I need to do to my house. It is a really clear photo of the inside. Thank You. Di

  9. Hi Tanya, I would like this very much. I started with great gusto but with so many family commitments I fell behind ( sudden stop) LOL. I need to start again, I will have to learn how to put my photos out there. Di.
  10. Than Hi Kathie B, I have just given up and yes he can wire it. BUT I still hate the plugs or am I being picky??

  12. Thanks KathieB, I think I will have too. but I just didn`t want to have a heap of those white plugs all over the place. Anyway at least it will be done, won`t it. Di
  13. Hi Jeannine, I started my garfield a long time age but because of family commitments it came to a stop. I would like to keep up to you and chat about it if you like. 1.I have made my base floor and have made the timber floor boards to go over it. 2. I have painted , wallpapered , made the curtains put in the windows of course, But. 3. I have come to the electrics, and a stop. I have asked my husband to help me. But he would like to just wire it and I had planned to use the copper tape method and put it behind the fireplaces. I am now not sure what to choose? Can anyone help me by making sugestions? Thank You Dianne A.

    Hi Jeannine, I am very sorry to hear of this I hope that you wrote them and demanded your money back. Or at least an apology because I didn`t think that they would be allowed to do this. Were the tiles wooden or cardboard?

    Hi Girls, Posting to Australia is expensive, I am so glad we purchased our Garfield when we did because it would be far too costly now. I bought it from Canada and postage was a tad more than the kit, BUT I loved it. I there a dollhouse following up in Brisbane?
  17. Hi, I purchase the English version of this magazine and your Garfield was in it too and it looked lovely. Congratulations.
  18. Love your Prancing Pony B&B as well.
  19. Hi, It has been a while since I built the base for my Garfield, but yeah I thought you may have had the wrong steps .... easily done. My big problem is how to wire it, and where to run the wires out of the back of the Garfield. I have pondered on this for a long time. I intend to put the wires up behind the fireplaces, it is that I want it tidy at the back of the house. Anyone with any ideas?
  20. Hi I have planned to move the bathroom wall, and I am about to order the extra sheet ?? I think it may be thirty. It is the one for the lower floor stairs just below the stairs near the bathroom. If my thinking is correct, the piece of the stairs opposite the kitchen/dining room door, should be the same size and shape for the side of the stairs above. Well that is my thinking. I have not quite got to that stage yet but I removed the bathroom furniture from their boxes and sat them on some graph paper to work out the size for the bathroom as well as the hallway between the bathroom and the stairs that we are talking about. as for the shape of the upper portion of the new bathroom wall I will see more clearly when The floor is in and I can then judge with the flooring above it. I have already drilled a 2" hole near the round window which will go into the bathroom, it is a close fit but it will work as the new window does not seem to be in the road of the slanting roof just above it. Old round window is then in the new hallway. As your post is dated 24/12/2015, I can only assume that you have worked all this out. Please let us know how you got on. Did you wire your Garfield, and if so how? This is my major problem at the moment and a problem I keep hesitating to start , because of it size and shape. Dianne A.
  21. Hi TEN, I am sorry you have had trouble with the Garfield. I am building and have been for quite a long time as other commitments keep getting in the way. I love my Garfield, and have been working on each room wall by wall. It probely is not easy but with a little bit of hard ship comes more love. Take it as it comes as suggested in the manual, and work through it slowly bit by bit. What seems like a huge problem will not be so bad when you get into it. Give it a go, you maybe very surprised.....what do you have to loose. Dianne A.
  22. I recently purchased a green leaf garfield dollhouse. What I thought was going to be easy assembly. Has turned out to be very trying for assembly this product. In further I am not going to be purchasing any more Greenleaf ;product.
