  1. The first one if you are making an old house but the second for a newer house. They both look very cool!
  2. I love my closet doors. Keep those coming!!! Also, pocket doors!!!!!!!!!!! The folding stairs are really neat. I have no idea what else was in the Timberbrook line, so I can't say what else I would love to have. Oh, and if you have a website you can put a link in your signature. I am so happy you checked out the forum and joined us, please have a look around and post in the gallery when you can!
  3. Good Job!!!!! I think you will soon find that it's hard to only build one. It can be such a learning experience that you'll want to apply what you learned to another then you'll learn something else that should justify making a third because, ya know, it just keeps going from there.......... there's a million things to do and try and it's a great adventure to find what works for you. You may even discover some great tip to share with the rest of us! I love progress photos, so keep them coming! It looks great and I would never have thought this was your first, congrats!!!

    Good job! Everytime I see another Orchid, it makes me want another kit. I love seeing progress photos. This so reminds me of how much joy I had building that very first one. Thank you for sharing your photos!
  5. Yes, I couldn't help myself and added the folding attic stairs to my purchase. I asked the seller, minirabbit, about it just in time! She was preparing to package my closet doors so I'll have everything shipped in one package! Now, I only need to snoop around and find out about the height of the room below the tower in the San Franciscan. I'll probably go to that section of the forum to ask.
  6. Beautiful! I especially love the floor of the main level. It looks like a really fun build. Great job!!!!
  7. Thanks for the photos fov and rodentraiser! Yeah, the placement of your closet in the Westville is very clever! I have one in a box, it's one I want to keep for myself, so I don't know when I'll get around to working on it. I may take your lead and put a closet there, that would be fun! I haven't made any definate plans for that build other than it will be inspired by many of the homes I remember seeing in rural Ohio as a child. There were many, many carpenter gothic country homes in that area as I can remember. So it will have some inspiration of mid century (1940ish) that's aged but not beyo
  8. Is there a sticky list somewhere with a list of all the B&M mini shops???? The summer before last, Mom and I took a trip from KY to NC. I did research online and found a mini shop that was kinda on the way. I had to go out of the way a little bit. I found the address but no mini shop...... turns out it had gone out of business the year before. I learned my lesson to always call ahead and see if the place still exists. Oh, and Green Gables Dollhouse shop used to be in the next town over. I went out there one day, with saved money in hand, and it was gone........ There was/is a Unicor
  9. I am getting the louvered doors. Two sets of the smaller ones and one of the big. I almost could cry when I saw all the stuff listed! I think otterine had a closet kit that she used on her blog, but that's the only closet kit I've seen to date. I hope to make a nice bedroom closet and maybe bathroom towel closet when I build my San Franciscan. I'm making my own kitchen cabinet set for my current build. I am confident in making a closet when I am ready. I only wish I knew more about power tools (other than dremel rotary) so I could have a scroll saw and some kind of table saw suitable for mini
  10. Are you saying just to use paint and avoid any sort of sealant?
  11. When my closet doors come in, I will share some photos. The doors are for a house I have not started yet, but I'm really glad to be gathering some of the additional supplies for it.
  12. Yay! Looking good! The Orchid will always have a special place in my heart, it made me fall in love with dollhouses. Great idea with a primrose addition, I look forward to that.
  13. Yeah, acrylic sealer is great on pastels. It keeps the pastels from dusting away. Do you put anything on the egg cartons to seal them for moisture? This is what I'm curious to know. I've done some egg carton brick test strips on brown craft paper. I just glued them on, let the glue dry and painted them. Boy, oh! Those little egg carton bricks wicked up the moisture of the paint (Gouache). It made me concerned that if it will do that, maybe it would be good to seal the eggcarton material with something, then paint them. Then just seal again for the sake of the paint. I just don't know which pro
  14. I'll be the odd ball here. I would have never started buying Greenleaf kits if the Orchid didn't come with shingles. Why? It's pictured on the box, and I wanted to be able to make one like on the box. This was my first, second and third build. I've bought 2 more Greenleaf kits and multiple furniture kits after the Orchids. I'll probably buy more kits. I bought a house with an extra room just for dollhouses. I didn't have to buy loads of tools or shop online just to make those first few builds, that was a huge plus. Then I was hooked! Now, if you are looking to continue to sell to existin
  15. I don't understand your questions. I know how to seal polyurethane resins. I don't work in paper except when I'm papering a dollhouse wall. Usually when making a piece that's intented to last long term, a sealant is placed beneath and on top pastels, watercolors or acrylics. Sometimes this is done to enhance color saturations or to keep the mediums from mixing. Othertimes it's to prevent smudging (charcoal and pastels).The sealants I'm used to using are imported from Japan, and not intended for paper. I use the scrapbook paper that's manufacured with the purpose of archiving or minigraphics wa
