  1. Sometimes the slot is the issue. You can add length to it by slicing the end of the slot with an X-acto knife. Then sand it.
  2. Yep, go ahead and glue the foundation or you will have a house of cards. Did anyone share this blog with you? https://moreminis.blogspot.com/2017/09/the-garfield-dollhouse-blog.html It might help you out. You are on your way! Good job!😉

    Henry Gold Houses

    I picked up this brochure at the 2021 Good Sam showcase of Miniatures. I was hoping he had a website, but I found nothing. Anyway, I thought this might be of interest to some of our members .

  5. My husband has been in the woodworking profession for over 25 years and is allergic to saw dust.......Red itchy eyes, excessive sneezing. It hasn't gone on to irritate his lungs yet. Maybe you should have someone scrape off the wood shingles and apply the new ones.....Asphalt shingles are another option. https://www.miniaturemarketplace.com/BUILDING-SUPPLIES/SHINGLES-ROOF-MATERIALS/ASPHALT-SHINGLES
  6. Hello Bill YOU CAN DO IT! The first thing to do is get familiar with kit. I recommend leaving the pieces in their sheets and using the schematics to label the pieces in pencil. Put the sheet number and piece number on it. Once that is complete, read over the directions for assembly so you get familiar with the abbreviations like R & P (remove and prepare) I don't recommend assembling the windows first like the directions indicate. It is much easier to paint them then assemble. The next step is to do the dry fit of the major pieces. The Arthur is pretty straightforward and open without any hard to reach interior places. This helps you see house how the house is assembled and if you need to widen any slots, or sand any tabs.... Don't be afraid to ask questions. Here is a good blog on the Arthur that may be helpful to you. https://moreminis.blogspot.com/2017/09/the-arthur-dollhouse-blog.html Sending patience your way~~~~~ Carrie

  8. Hi Vicki, You can try to reach them through an email using this contact form from the website. https://shop.greenleafdollhouses.com/contact-us/ Others have mentioned that they had a hard time getting through by phone as well. Just be patient, but keep trying.
  9. Anymore, my husband gets inundated with scam calls the minute he posts things on Craglist.....It is probably the case with this seller. The house is beautifully done, but they probably won't sell it at that price. Too bad.
