  1. You might like to look @ this if you were lucky enough to get a doll's houses at Christmas
  2. Someone suggested newbies start a thread about their build and ask questions so that everything would be in one place for them as they work on their projects. Sounds like a great idea so here is mine. I am building the orchid with the intent it be a tea room or tea room and gifts shop. The exterior will be painted in a true Victorian color scheme of rose tones, cream/white, and gray. I wanted to paint my own Victorian house in this palette but the Victorian next door to me is painted orange, yellow and brown. Color clash with my pinks. I opted for greens, beige, cream with a deep red burgundy
  3. OH MY. I'm a doof. I took a loooong break from minis and am firing it up again, but have had to refresh on many things. I did the biggest rookie mistake. i spent so much wasted time meticulously installing wall sconces so the wires were under wallpaper and just realized they make ADAPTERS for them. i'd only done ceiling lights and wall plugs. duh me. They look good but such a royal pain to noodle it all through the hardest way possible. ugh
  4. Does anyone have any experience lighting a dollhouse made of Foamcore? I am trying to decide among 3 volt LED systems, and round wire or tape wire. Also the house will be 1:16 scale. It's a 3 story, 10 room wall house of my own design. Has anyone built a large project in Foamcore? Is the 3/16th thick, readily available Foamcore adequate, or do I need to track down the 1/2 inch stuff? Or how about a double thickness? I would really love to here from someone who has actually worked with Foamcore, not just conjecture. I live in an apartment so cutting out a house out of plywood is not pr

  6. The house I am currently working on is a Willow, by Corona Concepts. After watching hours of videos and reading numerous tips and techniques, I decided to go “old school” and install round wiring. The technique I am using could be called “grooving.” I have seen a video on this before, where a builder used a knife to cut a groove across the floor, then glued the wires in it before installing the carpet. Thus, the wires were hidden completely. I decided to use a similar concept, but the plywood floors in this particular kit were so nice that I did not want to use paint or carpet on t
  7. Hi All, I'm currently working on my Beacon Hill. I'm looking for suggestions on where to get Victorian looking lighting fixtures. Most of the common dealers like Miniatures.com sell the standard stuff, most of which is more candlestick colonial. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Hi everybody Will you be coming to? Miniatura NEC Birmingham England March 24th - 25th York Dolls House Fair Sunday 3rd June 2018 Miniatura NEC Birmingham England Sept 22 – 23rd I will be talking to people about wiring Dolls House and how not to use white plugs and extending wire with Heatshrink sleeving or anything people want to know about their Dolls Houses Wiring If you can’t get to any of these shows all the information is on our YouTube channel Little Houses Plus or all the links are on our website http://www.littlehousesplus
  9. Hello Everyone! I just discovered this forum and am so grateful! I am remodeling my childhood dollhouse that my dad made for me. I have cleared out the entire house of everything including wallpaper and flooring. I have left the existing electric tape and would like to add on to it seeing as though it still works. I bought the blue and copper tape wire to use throughout the house and am wondering how to attach it to the existing tape wire which is two copper pieces (no blue piece). Is it possible? I assume there is a way. I have also purchased brads to use in connecting them
  10. I was wondering if anyone has ever used any of these types Chandelier ornaments to make lighting? Their scale is a bit big but if you had high ceilings or a grand room I think they might be cute.
  11. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Trying out this light in the room... Not sure if I'll use it. I was just going to use a nondescript ceiling mounted fixture in this room. But the demanding little minx wants something more. The room is still in dry fit so the left hand corner of the show will be grouted once the walls are glued together. As will the floor to wall junction. Excuse the droopy shower rose, it's just propped in there like everything else in this room.
  12. From the album: Porch Mystery House

    Husband is working on the electrical of this rehab house. Wallpaper and flooring will cover the grooves and 28 gauge wire (cat5e) with solder connections.
  13. From the album: Fairfield Build

    Lighting for half scale is significantly limited and I didn't want golden fixtures in my Fairfield. A few licks of matt black paint and they look like a whole new set of lights. Now to start drilling the many holes as I wait for them to dry ;-p
  14. So I need assistance picking a trim for my linen shades. Mock up below. I'm going for a rustic modern look... I like the white trim but think it might be too white for the dark metal and a bit refined for the look I want. The one on the left, I like the colour and texture but it's maybe too bulky? The third one is hemp rope and I think maybe too much contrast? Or not.. Originally I did this.. Which I like the best.. but no light shows through when you turn it on..

    I need your assistance in picking a trim for my Chandelier shade upcycle. I did a quick mock up... I like the one on the right but I feel it is too light for the dark metalwork. I like the colour of the one on the left but feel it's a bit bulky.. though I am going for a rustic look so it could work. The one in the middle.. too much contrast? It's hemp rope..
  16. From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    I need your assistance in picking a trim for my Chandelier shade upcycle. After Carrie's comment on the last pic about contrast, I thought I'd try one more option. I think we might have a winner?...
  17. I purchased some light bulbs to add to DIY light fixtures. When they came in the mail they were different than I expected. Mainly, the wires were much shorter and were not insulated. Did I order the wrong thing? Can I still use these for my light fixtures? I'm a total newbie to the Dollhouse world and this is my first build and first lighting project. However, I'm experienced in other handicrafts so if you have any advice I'm sure I could manage it. Thank you!

    Bead Cage Light

    From the album: Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    My bead cages finally turned up from China, so I made a quick light out of one of them. I have three.. they would make good ball pendants over an island or over bedside tables.... I just punched a hole in the top for the bulb wiring added a necklace chain and done.. The cage opens so you can change the bulb.
  20. Hi everyone! Quick question on lighting. I want to put in 5 to 6 light fixtures with a total of roughly 10 bulbs what size transformer should i get? I read that if i get one that is too big it will short out the lights? As always I appreciate any feedback, thank you! Missy
  21. I'm working on a new 1:48-scale dollhouse and I'd like to have plenty of lights inside. Plus I'd like to have some 'canned lights' coming out of the ceiling in the kitchen work area. But I was worried about needing the lights in such confined and small spaces that getting the wood walls/ceilings might be dangerous. I used a 6-light set of battery-operated LED lights for a smaller 1:48-scale house and they worked fine but with this house there will be a lot more lights. I'm thinking at least a dozen, possibly even up to 16 or more with the kitchen lights. Has anyone done the larger-scale l
  22. Hi everyone, I am currently building a doll house and I've just bought a set of small christmas lights and a plastic chandelier with a single glass bulb inside. My problem is, i'm making this as a part of a school assessment to be marked and glass is not allowed. Does anyone know if i could possibly use glue to seal and protect the light globes while making them appear as plastic? Or are there possible alternatives to glass lighting? Any help would be wonderful - I am perfectly fine with flouting these marking guidelines (they are in place for safety for the markers but I'm not sure
  23. Does anyone have any thoughts on the difference between the Cir-Kit and Creative Reproductions 2Scale lighting systems?
