Hi folks, I've bought a Tennyson fully constructed dollhouse and have seen these lovely buildings with room additions. I've searched for pre-built additions (nope) and plans to DIY, but no luck. Please, does anyone have a lead on a tutorial, guide, printed plan, or similar to help me determine if creating an addition is something I could tackle? Attached is an image of what I bought. It was only $70 Canadian, so I think it's a good deal and not too expensive to risk working on. Thanks in advance, Rosemary
Hi all, I am hoping that someone will be able to help me with some ideas! I am bashing a Primrose to an Orchid and need some help with the roof lines. This will be my first dollhouse kit - and of course, couldn't just stick with a standard kit. I am handy though, and have been crafting and building for close to 20 years. I've taken some pictures, so hopefully they help with thoughts and ideas. I have folded paper where I thought the roof would make sense, but am not positive on where the roof lines should end up where the Primrose juts out. And was also wondering if I should open up the attic/wall where the Orchid and Primrose meet. Any thoughts or ideas, anyone? I am also adding a dormer to the Primrose, and a full front porch to the Orchid. Not settled on an idea for the side of the house where the Primrose juts out - mainly because I'm not sure where the roof is going to end up, but I'm pretty sure I can work all that out. My two daughters and I are each building an Orchid, and they both decided on adding a Primrose to their houses as well, but those will be more standard applications. We have been working on trim for a loooong time (haven't had much time to work on it together) and are finally getting to the fun part! (though where we are going to put three dollhouses, I don't know!) El P.S. The paper folds aren't perfect, they were just folded to get a general idea. :-) And if I'm better off not adding the primrose this way, I can work with that too.
Okay so there is no bathroom in my vision of the farmhouse. But the addition doesn't have a door frame. Any ideas for a relative newbie to bash this so it works and is actually joined to house and has access from both floors? The addition would become kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen first floor and bathroom second floor. Needs access on both floors to make me happy. I will be moving wall over from instruction placement and making a dining room out of the smaller room (or it may be a foyer I don't really know my decision yet on that) I just know I want the addition but don't have a clue on how to add it where it looks right. Thanks for your suggestions. Karen
