Hello Everyone, This is my first dollhouse restoration and so glad to have found this site. I researched prior to buying and read for your first one, you should start small, a room box or small home. Well, I came across this large grand old farmhouse needing to be completed, one look and I was smitten; I bought the Farm. I have not seen any other one like it, nor when searching S/W Crafts does anything come up. If there is anyone that knows about this company and history I would be thrilled to know. The home I now own is S/W Crafts, Inc Country Estate Doll house. I have the original build instructions which looks a bit vintage and the lady I purchased it from, her Father-in-law built it with the intention of her finishing. Well obviously that never happened because it had been in storage for quite a few years and is in fairy good shape, just needs lots of TLC. Thanks for reading! G
Some late Victorian houses had square towers with flat tops---does anyone know what the tops of these were covered with? I guess I could ask the same question about widows' walks in earlier houses. Would it be wood planks on top of some kind of metal? Or tarred wood? I'd love to see pictures of real life or miniature versions.
