I hope someone in the group can help me. This house came fully assembled with lighting installed. It's old and has been well played with by a 16-year-old who has enjoyed it for 8 years. I have questions about repairing and refurbishing the house. I haven't done this kind of thing before but I am beyond excited to have this beautiful dollhouse. The house has been glued with wood glue (not hot glue) and the interior and exterior were primed. No flooring and a minimum of paper (one or two walls only) I'd like to put siding on. Can I install that around the already glued in window frames or must they be removed first? The second-floor bay window roof piece is missing (see image) If I had a pattern of the missing pieces I could make another out of thin bass or balsa wood. Does anyone have a pattern and instructions for making and installing the new piece? Any suggestions for rehab as per the attached photos are most welcome. Thanks! Rosemary
Hi all! I'm MiniaturesInsight, a soon to be 23 year old college student living in the Northwestern part of North America. I've been in love with miniatures since I was seven years old and my mother brought me along to a miniature show. I, of course, immediately demanded my own miniature dollhouse, but sadly it never got put together until just recently. On one level I'm glad for this, because I think my seven year old self and my 23 year old self would disagree on the details now! I hope to get a lot more work done on the dollhouse over this next summer, maybe even to the point of final details. I'm also really exited to get to know this community, since I've been reading a few of the threads as a guest for a few weeks now. Best, MiniaturesInsight
