  1. The chandelier is my splurge, and it just showed up in the mail yesterday. I am really happy with it!
  2. I’m going to take lots of pictures before anything gets covered up. I used Photoshop to draw out a map of the house and then tried using a red colored pencil to draw out where the tape would go, but it got complicated. Maybe I will try this again before I hang up wallpaper!
  3. The junction splice is on the back left-hand corner of the house, on the outside. I took another member’s advice and sliced through the back of the house so the tape wire could slip through. It looks a little sloppy right now, so I will need to clean that up. I may put some kind of stone or something back there to camouflage it.
  4. Lol I always seem to bite off more than I can chew, I dream big. So far so good though, I even learned how to use the soldering iron!
  5. This is great feedback, thank you. Sounds like anything goes, and it all depends on the situation. Which is the perfect answer!
  6. General inquiry - do you tend to wire the inside of your houses, or the backs of your houses? I am using tapewire and was all set to wire the inside until I saw a video where they demonstrate wiring through the back, which seems a lot easier for maintenance and decorating. The main thing I don't like about it is that the back of my house would be a mess (unless I put some kind of hinged door or false back on it). My house is the Grosvenor Hall - it's big, lots of rooms. Am wondering what the general dollhouse population prefers doing?
  7. I am so excited about this picture because the tester is pinned into the very last spot on my tape run and everything lights up. There’s still more work to be done, but I’m happy that my first foray into electrifying a dollhouse was not as scary as I thought it would be
