  1. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Furniture test, not a lot of space in this tiny kitchen. The hutch and table were barewood pieces I painted to match the kitchen, tried to distress them a bit too but I think they need more work. Idealy the sink should go under a window but then the furniture will look too crammed... luckily it fits on that narrow wall too. I bought a reutter pot rack so I could have a decent assortment of pots and pans, everything else is from my porcelain collection. I guess I'll use some of the stuff I already had to decorate the house, I'm missing a lot of basic accessories I'll have to get later but I'll have plenty of time till I can actually keep the furniture in the house xD

    My husband and I just completed our Beacon Hill! We extended what was once the kitchen to make a dining room and created a larger kitchen.
  3. Hello from Kansas City. I'm building a dollhouse for my anxious 6 and 9 year old daughters and I'm not entirely sure what I've gotten myself into. I just opened the box on a brand new Beacon Hill and scanned the assembly instructions. Holy cow! I certainly would love some advice/counsel as I get started. This seems like a great community. I clearly need all the help that I can get… even as I stare at Step 1. Initial question - How best to prepare the flooring? Do I need to add flooring to each room later? or can i just sand/stain the floors right from the box? Thanks, in advance, for your help. I'm certainly going to need it.

  6. Hi - I'm restarting a beacon hill after dragging it around for years. Very excited! Is there somewhere to find the room dimensions? I'd like to start ordering flooring and wallpaper as shipping times are really slow. Many thank!
  7. Dollhouse experts- I need your help! This is my very first house (I know, bad choice) but I have struggled through with some YouTube videos and blogs that have solved the other mysteries. Now I'm at Step S, Dormer Windows...and the pieces on the SCHEMATIC for sheet 18 match the instructions (and a blog with pics) but the pieces on my sheet 18 (all 4) have no notches on the R/L side pieces and the bottom sill is a simpler shape than the schematic shows. Did they change this? Did I get the wrong sheet 18s? Thank you!
  8. Hi! I am building the Beacon Hill, and almost finished. I am working on the dormer windows and struggling. My directions got paint spilled on them. Can I see the directions online? And how do you make the roof on the dormer widows! Thanks for any help you can give! I wish I would have thought of doing this when I started! Kathy Stieren
  9. Hi, I've got a secondhand Beacon Hill kit sealed in box and was going to cut it open to do a dry fit. However, I'm very slowly trying to finish a Willowcrest first. So instead of opening the BH, can someone tell me the height of the ceilings in the upper rooms? I've got a few canopy beds that never seem to fit in dollhouse kits but I'm hoping they might fit in this one.
  10. My Beacon Hill in process I bought the kit back in 2008. I got the basic shell done at that time, but life put it to the side. This shell has moved from Texas to Missouri, back to Texas, to Virginia, back to Texas. I got a little done here and there. I finally got the box back out in the last month, I have the windows almost done, and some of the trim on. I know I'm sloppy, and I get in a hurry. I put some of the household stuff from the giant box in the rooms, not permanently, just to put something in it. I had a metal dollhouse when I was a child, which is now a collectors item, but I gave it to some random little girl. I gave her the plastic furniture with it, but everything else I kept. I've been finding and saving stuff all my life for this dollhouse, hence the giant box. I'm still undecided about the paint colors for it. Here's a couple of my favorite things, cat table & chairs, and table & chairs made from screen and springs. I had a friend come over a couple weeks ago, and she helped me a little bit. She said I need some people to be living in there. I didn't keep the people I had before. So, mine is going to be this cat family. For now. I printed 2 out on card stock, one with mirror image, then glue them together. No cost. What's funny is...I live in San Antonio, in the "Beacon Hill" neighborhood. Every other place I've lived here, I used the Beacon Hill post office. Worst post office on the planet. However, even though I live in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, they are not my post office.
  11. Good Morning Everyone, We are getting the Beacon Hill for my daughter for Christmas for us to build together. She loves all things miniature (as do I) and will be thrilled with the traditional style. As a first time builder, my main question is where do we start? Is there a reference book we should have on hand, any tool kits I should buy in addition to the doll house, favorite glue? I would hate to open the box and find we need several additional items, or start and realize we should have done things in a certain order. I am so excited and nervous to start this project with her and want to be as prepared as possible! Many many thanks, Sophie
  12. Hi everyone, After carefully testing everything in dry fit and following the instructions I have begun to glue together the Beacon Hill. Everything is going well so far but I'm having a bit of trouble with the 1st floor staircase: the base doesn't seam to want to sit flush with the floor tabs. I have modified the wall from the hallway/living room to make my entrance a straight corridor (no curve), I am not sure if that's what's causing it or just the floor that warped a little in that area. I thought I had left the required tabs in the wall but there is an added extension that isn't from the kit... I have checked the staircase and it's squared, everything is flush. 1) I am wondering if it would be safe to just cut the floor and wall tabs from the staircase? It's giving me more trouble trying to make them fit in place than just aligning the stairs with the trim/rails connecting the walls. I'm not sure if these tabs are needed to keep the stairs connected with the second floor landing, or if they will hold fine without them? 2) Also, can I glue the stair trim/rail to the staircase AND still manage to position the stairs in place after the walls have been glued? The space is so narrow I'm trying to play it safe and glue it >after<... but I feel it would be so much easier to decorate it from outside the house >.< If anyone has done this kind of modification on the BH lemme know how your 1st floor 'entrance room' turned out, I am a bit afraid of gluing something I shouldn't until I make sure the stairs will sit right in place lol.
  13. Hi everyone. My name is Michael and I live in New York. I’ve been building scale model ships and aircraft for a few years but I’m brand new to dollhouse building. Last year I purchased a Greenleaf Beacon Hill kit to build for my niece who is now 5 years old. I’m getting ready to begin the project now to work on during the cold winter months. I’m hoping to have it ready for her by next Christmas. I’ve been reading through the many excellent posts on the forum and am so inspired by all your creativity and ingenuity. I’m sure I will be back on here many times searching for answers when I get stuck along the way, but the great info I have already found on here has given me a lot of confidence to tackle this project and have fun doing it. I’ll try to share my progress as I go along. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I look forward to chatting with you all more in the future.
