  1. It is the Allison. Or the Whitney. Or the Cambridge. They are all the same, but if you are searching for ideas on the internet, knowing the 3 different names can make it easier to find different views. I am not positive, but the house may have been known by another name as well. It's been awhile since I have built one. So glad you could rescue this house.

    May such a wonderful person rest in peace. We will miss you Selkie. Prayers to her family and all who knew her (here or elsewhere).
  3. I agree with Kathie. Though it is more then likely to be a puzzle house, it looks like it might be what they (the folks who make the puzzle houses) call the 'Fantasy Villa'. Don't quote me though, but that's what it looks like to me.
  4. As Lawanda said. Oh, that's hard! Are we choosing ones we have built or just a dollhouse? Because, I would probably choose a Westville.... or wait, maybe a Magnolia... oh-oh-oh... better yet would be a Heritage. There are just too many to choose from. They are all so beautiful in their own way. Great subject. Thanks
  5. It sure does, Kathie. Thanks for sharing. There is a movie or some type of show coming up about him. I caught a part of the ad for it last night.
  6. May you be comforted with pleasant memories of times shared with those who have gone onward. This is/will be a difficult time for you, but know you are thought of and prayers are being sent. Remember to take time for you.
  7. Welcome Dorothy. We had another Vermonter join recently, as well. Looking forward to seeing your house.
  8. Jen, when the glass company guy put Lexan into my door a few years back, he said that it was better then Plexi-glass. He said that someone could shoot at my door with a .22 and it wouldn't break. I don't know if its true or not, but that's what he said. It discolored quite a bit over time though.
  9. Welcome. If you go to the RGT website, you should be able to peruse their houses and find yours. They also have spare parts such as stairs and other misc. stuff to help fix her up. Oops, I see someone seems to have found it. It does look like it may be the one.
  10. Welcome to the family, Beth. I'm a Vermonter as well. Are you in The Southern half or Northern half of VT? What house are you building?
  11. Welcome. Retail scenes are interesting. Looking forward to see what you do.
  12. Welcome. Beautiful. Looking forward to see what you do with it. Do you have any idea what colors you want to do the exterior?
  13. Maybe just moving the fireplace tools to that space will do it. I think it looks well done. Nice work.

    Wow! Love them.
  15. I think a third landing would also give the tenants a bit more outside storage under the first set of steps. It might not be a lot, but it could serve as added space if need be.
  16. Glad to hear you are feeling better, Molly. I used mosaic tiles in the bathroom of a Whitney I built for DD's best friend. She likes it and that's all that matters, I suppose. Advice I would give would be to use a template of the floor you plan to use the tiles on and lay the tiles out until you find the pattern you want. I, personally, will not be likely to use them again. Though I think they can be beautiful when done. I just didn't enjoy working with them as much as I enjoy other parts of a build. I do better with Popsicle sticks and coffee stirrers for flooring (I think).
  17. Wow! It's awesome! Lucky you! I love the dutch doors! I would definitely do some landscaping. Though I can't see the contact paper clearly, I would also remove it. Maybe use some Popsicle sticks or thin coffee stirrers as replacement flooring. It is gorgeous! I agree with Holly, it isn't written in stone that we can only ever have one dollhouse. Have fun with her. Let her tell you if she wants something special. Enjoy!
  18. Maybe you could glue 2 "C" channel together to make the "E" channel.... maybe sand down one side of each piece of the "C" channel before gluing to make the middle thickness (when glued together) a bit thinner. I hope I explained my thought clear enough. I just don't know how else to explain the idea. Maybe someone else on here will have a better idea or a clearer explanation. Good luck.
  19. I don't know about the siding as any siding I have done was already milled in when I got the kit. Hopefully someone on here can help with that. I have built the Orchid. Did some minor bashing to it. My advice is to take your time and enjoy the process.
  20. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Prayers for you and your family.
  21. Congrats! Lucky you! I have the Victoria Farmhouse in my wish list. Maybe someday. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
  22. Very nice! Beautiful detail.
