  1. Hi everyone! So I've been spending the past 6 months working on my first doll house - the half scaled Fairfield. As the rest of you half scalers know not everything comes in half scale and therefore it's difficult to source what you need. There are also little parts that once glued it's difficult to get into the rooms to decorate. So it's been a challenge but I've throughly enjoyed it. It's forced me to think out of the box and do my research! As my time with my Fairfield is drawing to a close (hopefully - by Christmas fingers crossed if i get organised and motivated) I've started thinking ahead to my next project - a full 1" scale house! I've narrowed my choices down to the Lily or Beacon Hill. The Beacon Hill is of course a crowd favourite and a very traditional doll house! The front is stunning but the inside, but for me, is a little restrictive. Has anyone completed this house with modifications to the rooms? I see a lot of people add on a little conservatory but has anyone added on anything more substantial? The little kitchen is going to drive me bonkers, so I'm going to have to figure out the best way to make it bigger. Ive thought about buying 2 kits and bashing them together by placing an additional 3 room tower section (the part with the bay window if you are looking in front the front) on the right hand side next to the small kitchen. The other issue is the layout - being very vertical. And after dealing with the Fairfield - which is a very similar layout to a real house the Beacon Hill looks a little 2D from the back. Although it's probably easier to display because of the smaller foot print. What is great about the Fairfield though is the rooms are really easy to get into and decorate. The Lily is of course similar design to the Fairfield in it's "3D layout". I've done a few searches on the forum and read the posts - only can find a handful of examples. I've toyed with the idea of adding an additional level between the 2nd floor and the roof level for some extra rooms. The wrap around balcony reminds me of a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast with the bottom level a kitchen, dinning, lounge and the upper levels bedrooms and bathrooms with perhaps a library/music room : -) I'm thinking black iron railings, shutter windows and bricks for the outside. The big draw back with this one is getting into those small spaces (like the fairfield) so a lot of the work needs to be done before gluing. Can I do this to myself again? LOL Has anyone completed this house? Have people added different windows and doors? Would love to hear and see what you've done with it! Thoughts and suggestions would be most welcome! : - )
