We decided to see if our interests could be applied to building one. We lurked in the forums for some months learning what we could about choosing a house, building, electrifying, and landscaping.

  7. After lurking in the forums here for help and inspiration, we have finally finished our first dollhouse just in time for Fall. Not a true bash, but we did add a greenhouse/solarium to one side off the kitchen. Our Siamese cat Moo Moo likes to hang out in there. More pictures will follow.
