I'm building the Duracraft Farmhouse FH-505 and I'd love some advice on how and at what point in the assembly I should install the lighting kit.
I want to install the hardwood flooring that came with the dollhouse kit. I bought a Cir-kit deluxe wiring kit (from Facebook Marketplace for $20!). I put up the exterior walls of the dollhouse, thinking it would be easier to do the wiring once I had the house assembled and had a better idea of possible room layouts and lighting placement, then I would install the hardwood flooring. However, I'm now thinking that it may be a pain in the arse to install the hardwood after I have the interior walls in place, and I think it would look better if I installed the interior walls over the top of the hardwood floors. So now I'm stumped.
Should I run the tape wiring along the base and across the base floor into the three first floor rooms (per the sample wiring diagram in the Cir-kit instructions), leaving enough length to run up the walls and ceilings, then install the hardwood, interior walls & second floor?
Could permanently installing the hardwood floor over the tape wire cause any issues down the line? Or is there a way I could install the hardwood on a thin sheet of plywood or something, so that it could be easily slid out if there were ever problems with the tape wire under the flooring? Would I have to do that room by room and affix the interior walls to the base floor, or is there a way I could do the entire first floor in one piece?
Or should I just re-sell the Cir-cut kit and go with a different wiring system that's more easily installed after the hardwood is installed and the house is assembled?
Thank you very much!
