  1. Thank you Kells, I appreciate the info. I needed someone to talk me out if it lol. They are beautiful stones but I didn't think they would be good for the kitchen floor. I actually bought the wood square tiles from Greenleaf and used them for 1st floor hallway. Your vinyl tile floors look great. Thanks again everyone this was very helpful.
  2. Thank you everyone. Havanaholly those floors look great. KathieB egg cartons, very creative idea. I bought brown cut stone veneer from miniatures.com. They are very pretty but I was wondering if they would be too thick or high. I will have to give it some thought. When I finally finished the house I will try and post pictures, I'm a little computer challenged. Thanks again
  3. Hi Everyone: I haven't been on here for a while; I am still building the Beacon Hill dollhouse. This is my first build. I was thinking of using a stone floor in the Beacon Hill kitchen. I was wondering if anyone having these thoughts on that idea. I know I have to add in the wall in the bay window. Would it be difficult to put the wall and bay window in with the stone floor? Of course I would be careful to keep the stones away from the slots that the tabs have to go into. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.
  4. Hi everyone, I have been busy building the Beacon Hill dollhouse. This is my first build. I have a question regarding paint for the inside and outside of the beacon Hill. I bought Benjamin Moore eggshell finish paint that I have been using on the inside of the house. My question is someone bought me Benjamin Moore paint for one of the rooms inside the house and for the outside of the house with a pearl finish and I was wondering if an eggshell finish is better especially for the outside of the house. Ant thoughts? Thank you all in advance.
  5. Thank you Mid- life madness. I will check those out.
  6. Hi havanaholly: Yes it is. The problem is I slide in the 3rd floor beginning with the right wall working my way to the left as they said but as I slide the third floor into the right petition wall slot and push it back to the third floor wall slots it goes back but when I push it into the third floor slots of right wall the back comes forward. If that makes sense. I use the mallet to tap it in but everytime I go to close the third floor slots of the right wall it comes out of back slots so it is not flush with the back write petition wall slots. I thought if I glued part of it at a time that might help but I'm not sure. I really appreciate the help thank you.
  7. Hi everyone:. I am working on the Beacon Hill Dollhouse and I am adding the third floor. I followed instructions beginning with right wall working my way to the left wall. For 3 days I have been trying to get it right. Everytime I put the tabs in slots for - bathroom ceiling - 3rd floor slots on the back and side I have a problem. If I put the back slots in and then line up the side slots the back comes forward and is not flush against the wall. I am starting to think I should cut off some of the tabs. Any suggestions?
  8. Hi everyone: Well for a few days I was trying to send a picture of the foundation because I wasn't sure the bottom support was exactly straight. It kept saying File was too big. So I gave up on sending the picture. I decided to take off the bottom support and try again. It only took a little blow drying to remove back support. It felt like it was on pretty tight but I guess it was not. The second time I glued it on I used the Aileen's tacky glue -which I used before - but I also used gorilla glue. I wasn't sure about mixing two glues together but it did form a very strong bond the only problem was the front part of the back support did not seem like it was on that strong. So I decided to take it off again. but this time it took more elbow grease to take it off however the front end came off right away. MY QUESTION IS.. I decided to buy the Tite Bond translucent wood glue. the only problem is when I was reading the back for the instructions it said not recommended for structural or load-bearing applications. Can I Use This Glue for the foundation .. because it is all load-bearing. ?? Not sure what to do any suggestions?
  9. Thank you everyone. This was very helpful.
  10. Hi everyone: I am working on Beacon Hill dollhouse. My first ever dollhouse. There is a part of instructions I do not understand. It says: Interlock long slot in Right Wall with long slot in Second Floor until tabs on front edge of of right wall align with notches in edge of Front Wall/Right. I did that. However it says : GLUE just the section of this joint between First and Second floor(5). Nowhere else. I don't understand this part? Can anyone help? Thank you.
