  1. From the album: New Glencroft

    I have been struggling with how to tackle the ceilings in this build, i didn't want stucco because i remember it being an issue when it came to the beam installation. Finally I ended up digging out the pyrography set and sketched in some boards and threw a coat of stain over it. I think this will work!
  2. I am about to start assembling my Glencroft kit. I was wondering if I could remove the downstairs interior wall (cut it off from the upstairs interior wall), to create an open plan downstairs. I’d really like more room for the kitchen and eating area. If I did this, would the second floor still be structurally stable?
  3. From the album: Glencroft 2020

  4. So, I want my beams to look substantial. Also, I am going to open my staircase in my Glencroft so will be using a 3/4 " floor to ceiling beam to hold everything up. I also want this pole to look like a "meaty" piece of wood. I've stained one ceiling beam with Golden oak minwax stain and then painted over with acrylic "melted chocolate " by Apple barrel. I painted one with a tan color wood filler and will go back and put wood grain in with my exacto knife. Not sure which I like best. Any ideas? Jeri
  5. So, I am on day two of my Glencroft build. The second floor went in with much finagling, but now I am dealing with the left side of my house. I've read about some of the problems other people have had with this side. I decided to walk away and start fresh tomorrow. So far it's been fun♡ Jeri
  6. Hello everyone! My name is Bill Brown and I hail from Arnold, Mo. (just south of St. Louis). I am new to the dollhouse experience but not ownership. Please let me explain. Back around 1984 I was looking for a cool present for my younger sister. One night I was out with some friends and someone asked to stop at Michael's craft store. While said member was looking for their item, I started wandering aimlessly around the store. I happened to stumble across the dollhouse aisle . "Wow these are cool!" I thought to myself! As I was walking along admiring th

    From the album: Glencroft "Spinners End"

    I'm LOVIN' my pond. I still have to figure out how to make the water look more alive with ripples, but for my first pond, It's come out OK.
  8. Good morning everyone, I'm so glad to have found this site to try and figure out what I'm doing! I recently purchased a 1983 Glencroft dollhouse from kijiji as I instantly fell in love with the idea of this build. I've had a penchant for miniature things since I was a small girl, anything small I tend to fall in love with, I'm not sure why! I was lucky enough to have my mothers old dollhouse given to me as a child and I remember well the struggles of wallpapering to this day! I still have it and may revisit it one day, but for now I'll be working on the Glencroft. The kit looks to be
  9. Hi, everyone. I saw many Glencroft bash where they add a room (usually what it looks like the primrose or a 'greenhouse'). My question is how about a basement? Anyone ever try that? May I see some picures?pleeeease!?!?!?!
  10. I purchased an almost completely built Glencroft dollhouse at an estate sale. The only things left to do are the windows and doors. No directions came with the house. I have looked at a lot of pictures online but I simply can't figure out how to do the windows. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.
  11. Please ignore the rough finishings in the picture, I'm not done yet. I put some of the furniture in my nearly finished Glencroft, to get a look at the big picture. And the first thing that jumped out at me is that the toilet looks TINY compared to the bedroom furniture. (I've learned that all 1:12 scale is not created equal). My cottage is of the present time, but was inherited and thus the fittings are a mixture of new, old, and in-between as the previous owners did updates throughout the years. I really, really want to keep this style bathroom. But, it looks terrible. My questions
  12. Progress on my Glencroft has come to a halt! The windows and doors need an exceptional amount of trimming to fit properly. I'm wondering if there's a faster/more effective way than sanding them by hand? I also tried a Dremel but it can't get the corners properly. Any suggestions appreciated before it becomes a pile of toothpicks!
  13. Hello! I am building the Glencroft (my first build), and the backstory is as follows: The cottage was part of a larger estate in Yorkshire which was inherited by a Canadian freelance writer; the main house house is in a state of disrepair and much too large and draughty for her, so she's decided to live in the cottage and work on her romance novels. (Perhaps the great house will be my next build). There's been a bit of updating done to the cottage as far as plumbing etc, but not too much (it was the caretaker's cottage and he was an elderly gent who passed some time ago).
  14. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Bathroom

    A little scuffing up and some paint gave these fixtures just the right amount of age and charm!
  15. Intro of my project HERE EXTERIOR As I mentioned in my intro, I plan on totally customizing the exterior. I will start by adding a portico style porch over the front door to give the house more depth. Then the whole bottom half of the house will have a stone finish. Photo 1: I love this house! This house was the initial inspiration behind the stone porch so I plan on replicating it on my Glencroft exactly! I can't wait to see how it will turn out. I also plan on finishing the chimney the same way. Plaster and Stone. Photo 2: I researched fo
  16. Hello! After a lifetime of fascination with miniatures, I finally decided on my first true kit. I'd built a dollhouse in childhood, but nothing as complex as this. I chose the Glencroft based on size and style, and look forward to the challenge of getting it together, then the pleasure of choosing the finishings, furniture, etc. My plan is to make from scratch as much of the interior as I can (another reason for choosing a cottage instead of a more formal Victorian style). I am excited to have this forum, as I can see from a quick look that there is tons of information and experience here
  17. Hello Everyone, I'm new to these forums but not new to the love of minis. I'm from Southern California and I live in Rancho Cucamonga - that's on the way to Palm Springs in one direction and Las Vegas in another. My first build was a Dura-Craft Farmhouse. ...not sure what I was thinking, or not thinking. But now I have time to revise this first love and I have a Dura craft San Franciscan 555 to build, a Greenleaf Glencroft and a Willowcrest kit waiting for me to assemble. I am however on the hunt for a 1:12 Hacienda Style plans. I'm looking forward to seeing everyones homes and learning
