    Thank you! Yes, its a real house. My husband and I wanted desperately to buy it, but we don't live in the state, have jobs there, can't afford a second home, you know, all the trappings of rational thinking lol. Someone just bought it recently, but husband and I are convinced they are not happy at all there. How could they be, when they are living in someone else's dream home? Smacks of fraud and dishonesty, or maybe I am just a petty, small person. That's probably it! Still, love it though. I imagine the carpenter who made the staircase and the rest of the woodwork in the house (gorgeou

    My husband and I looked at this 1879 Second Empire Victorian in New England and fell in love. We have no jobs in the area, no prospect of jobs, schools aren't that stellar, but still in love with it. I would live in this hallway happily for the rest of my life lol.
  4. Lol Genevieve! I hear you about the Ebay thing! My husband (yes, he thinks I am "off') calls it "spite bidding" on my part, and I completely understand your righteous indignation. I, too, am appalled that some stranger would have the gall to bid on something that is rightfully mine!!!! It's tantamount to outright thievery! But, for me, its getting worse than Ebay. While the tape wire odyssey is going on, I "collect". My dear husband, with a subtle cough, says I "hoard". I think he may be right, although I would never tell him so (maybe I just did lol). Large Rubbermaid storage boxes ar
  5. Hi Genevieve! I started this thread last year almost to the day and I still have not figured out how to post pictures! I finally have a table for the dollhouse (Christmas present that husband made) and I am presently, slowly, reluctantly tape wiring it. Or, at least my husband and son are, when I can get them too. I hate Hate HATE doing the electrical work, so I've been foisting that job on others, lol. I have not posted any pictures yet, but hope to as soon as my "guys" (reluctant laborers) finish the wiring. I keep changing my mind on outlets, locations, etc. so they are thrill
  6. FOLDING TABLE!!!!!! (slaps head in frustration) Of course, never even thought of that!!! Thank you! That would work perfectly!
  7. Lol no its not done, it came fully assembled with the exterior done, the trim, etc. windows, widow's walk, chimney still have to be attached, I just don't know how long I can go without a dining room table. The interior is untouched but came with stairs, railings, etc. No wiring yet, so the wire tape odyssey will begin soon. I get nervous just thinking about doing the wiring! It's really hard and takes me forever to make decisions, so I'll have to decide where I want fixtures, outlets, etc. No easy task for someone as changeable as I am! I would love some sort of cart or table on wheels
  8. My dream house arrived last week finally! I was just wondering what people use as a table to display their houses? This one is a big girl at 48" wide and 21" deep, so a standard console type table is out. Does anyone have any suggestions? I will try to post pictures of it if the site will let me. It's currently taking up half my dining room table right now! It opens in front and back, with rooms accessible only from either side (front and back) so i would need wheels. Oh, and it weighs about 90lbs give or take (at least UPS charged me for 90lbs). Would love to know what everyone else do
