  1. Hi, all! I have built my own kid-friendly dollhouses in the past out of old wood. I finally decided to graduate to my first kit. I recently bought a Hofco Federal Victorian House Kit for $150. It included bedroom furniture, bathroom furniture, Christmas decorations, a complete lighting kit, etc. The kit itself is complete and in great shape - which is impressive for its age. When I opened the kit, I was so impressed by its details. The doors, the windows, everything. There was a marble fireplace buried deep in the box. Clearly, this is way too nice for me. I needed
  2. Hello everyone, I have a question about the old Hofco kits. Did they come with windows, doors, stairs, trim, etc?
  3. Hi, I'm an old codger with a mini problem. I've inherited - rather my granddaughter has inherited for me to assemble - a Hofco Americana 242 in mostly box state. However, there are no assembly instructions. Does anyone know where they or a good copy exists that could be made available to me? First time builder, and not sure where all the parts go, nor really the best process to follow to assemble. Thanks for any help. Carl
  4. After working on it off and on for two years, including a move from NYC to Florida, illness, a family death et al, it is basically complete! Have put it up for sale but if it doesn't sell right away I think I will rework the 2nd floor porch railings with the Real Good Toys porch railings or something along those lines. I find the uploading process here frustrating, so if you don't mind heading over to my blog, here's the link. Would love to know what you think! I visioned it as a Key West house, music-oriented, and wanted to have the color come from the furniture and artwork so hav
  5. This rare dollhouse which I have painted and decorated is my pride and joy. I purchased it as an unpainted shell from the original owner in NJ about 2 years ago. As you all know, Hofco made very high-end dollhouses in the 1980s which are very sought-after now (you can search for Hofco dollhouses on Ebay to see the kind of prices they fetch - a google search turns up an auction one year ago for the same make/model that went for over $2000). Made of cabinet-grade wood, this is a sturdy house but with delicate features. The 2-story porch is one of the widest dollhouse porches in the business. All

    Progress.

    So much progress in just a few short weeks. I'm really starting to feel good about this!
  7. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    The topiaries had brown bases when they arrived which didn't match very well. I reps intend them black then added some white for a distressed look. I love that the bases are square, they seem to match the lines of the house.

    Foundation corners

    From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    "Nipped" the bricks to make the corners work.
  9. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Finally added hardware to the French doors.
  10. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    I want to experiment with the porch railing. Considering painting it black, maybe just the spindles white with black rails, or maybe a fancier design all together.
  11. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    It looks a little more aqua in person. After I read the history behind the blue porch ceilings of the south I had to choose this color!
  12. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Painted the porch floors grey today (thanks for the ideas havanaholly) and put a third coat of black paint on the shutters. I realize things don't appear to be straight but everything is just resting temporarily, windows doors and shutters are not permanently affixed yet.
  13. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Finishing touches! Brass knocker, knob, and kick plate added. Yes, the knocker works and there are two keys for the lock.

    Front view update

    From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Still need to add the extra moulding around the French doors. But, this sure looks a lot better than a few weeks ago. Painting the shutters black now. Also need to add "glass" into windows and door along with brass door handles.
  15. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Using the suggestion of a friend and fellow enthusiast, I used a hair dryer and some gentle prying to deprecate the pieces of the old frame. Going to glue the to the new frame to have almost an exact replica and more accurate version of the original.
  16. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    My new French door arrived yesterday. While I was happy to get it I was more than a little disappointed in the lack of moulding on the frame compared to the one I have to replace. See the next image to view my remedy for this.

    Fresh coat of paint

    From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do!
  19. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Needs love! Dingy and dinged up. Missing two windows and French doors.

    The before front

    Mostly dingy, dusty, dinged up, missing two windows, and French door. Needs some overdue love!
  21. From the album: My Travel Finds

    My latest find. This was in NE Philly on Craigslist. I got it for $40 and the guy delivered it to my hotel. Normally I take them on the plane with me as checked luggage, but since I am in a walking boot I made a stop at FedEx Office on my way to the airport. I can't wait to get started!
  22. From the album: Hofco Byron Free

    And here is the finished house! It kinda reminds me of "The Waltons" house. The Hofco House was really nice to work with, and if it had belonged to me I would have done lots of fun stuff with it.....but this is what the client wanted - and she loved it! So that is all that matters.
  23. From the album: My Travel Finds

    Hopefully the Hofco kit I just bought will look something like this when I am done.
