Hello all, I'm so happy to have stumbled upon this forum. I purchased a VM-800 about 30 years ago and very nearly completed it - except for the roof and the porch railings. Then we bought a real house - a fixer-upper so the dollhouse was stored away. Now I am retired and would like to finish it. I have all the parts, instructions, etc. It's painted, electrified, wallpapered, the flooring is in, and I have a lot of furniture. I actually started out collecting miniature furniture and later decided I needed a house for my collection. My problem is that I don't like the doors that came with the kit and would like to replace them with more authentic looking doors. In researching this I find that all the available 1:12 doors are much bigger than the openings on the house - by as much as a 1/2". I am a little nervous about enlarging the openings. Has anyone done this before and do you have any tips? Or are there other sources for the doors? I have looked at Houseworks and some others on miniatures.com. Any help would be appreciated.
