  1. Room Box for My Sister Updated

    I'm making this for my half-sister, and a copy of it for myself. Just found out she also loves miniatures but was afraid the hobby was too expensive.

  3. Door Mural - RL Updated

    This is a mural my beloved DIL painted for us several years ago in our new home. I'd like to replicate it sometime and put it in a dollhouse.

  4. New Home in Nebraska Updated

    In August 2019 we sold our home in Washington state and moved to Nebraska. After shopping online, from far away, and looking at dozens of houses, we found our jewel. It is a Craftsman, built in 1920.  It needs a little TLC but the inspection showed that the bones are sound and it's in good shape. The previous owner was a widower in his 90's who had lived here with his family for 57 years!
    I feel like I've just moved into my own dollhouse!

  5. Art Gallery Room Box Updated

    I'm making this for a friend, who is a photographer. All the pictures used in the project are some he's taken. I chose the Grand Room Box because it's open at the top and easy to see into.

  8. Spring Fling 2013 - Grandpa's Cabin in the Woods Updated

    This build is set in a cupboard, so the back and right sides are not visible. I added a back wall to it, and the roof is removable for access and better visibility.

  9. Found in a Storage Unit Updated

    My cousin, always the wheeler-dealer, talked to a lady who was emptying a storage unit, which remained unclaimed by the owner. She then called me and told me about it.
    Guess what was inside???

  14. My First Dollhouse Updated

    I started this in 1983 and housed it in a 4-shelf bookcase my father-in-law had made. It moved with us to three different houses; then it was dismantled and has never been put back together. Our 16-year-old daughter had just died of leukemia, and I began to understand the therapeutic value of working with miniatures.

  17. Grandma's Teacup Updated

    I made this as a Christmas gift to my mother in 2000. The setting is actually a cream pitcher (not a teacup) and saucer from my grandmother's set of dishes. Grandma loved china dishes, and this set was one of her favorites -- Currier and Ives "The Rocky Mountain". It was divided up among most of her children and grandchildren, giving each of us a memory.

  20. Antique Dollhouse Updated

    : I found this little house in a Home and Garden Show I worked at recently, where the back few aisles had antiques for sale. As I rounded the corner, this little house waved at me so I had to go look at it. Only the front and two sides were attached to the base and the fellow wanted way too much money for it. He got it in an estate sale, and was told it was about 100 years old. Then he showed me the plastic tote under the table with the rest of the house in it.

  25. Beacon Hill Updated

    Just acquired this house, which was left as is in 1990. Don't know who built it but apparently she became ill, and then died, and no one touched the house after that.
