Walmer Foxhall Manor #600 is ready for a new loving home. We are keeping the other miniature houses but this is too big for our new space. It's a large installation- see ping pong table for size reference. See photos posted here: https://duluth.craigslist.org/clt/d/duluth-vintage-walmer-foxhall-manor/6963266066.html Kept in good condition by my perfectionist word-working grandfather in his basement. His 80yr old hands can't manage the intricate parts for quite some years so it's time for a new home. He reinforced the main base area for a better platform. Main house structure is complete but windows were not installed (still in original packaging). One of the additions has been set up, while the Conservatory is still new un-opened in box. Also includes both additions: #603 and #605More photos or video upon request. Make an offer. This exact kit [but without either addition] is being sold on eBay for much more:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sophistikits-Foxhall-Manor-Dollhouse-Material-Milled-Plywood-/331766853785Would make such a memorable Christmas house display. -12 Rooms. -Front-opening design. -Fancy porch posts and spindles. -Window kits include interior trim. -Step-by-step instructions with detailed drawings.
Hi, all... total newbie over here! If there were a name for someone even less informed than a "newbie," that would be me. So, I thought I would introduce myself before I begin peppering you all with dollhouse questions elsewhere in the forums! I'm a freelance illustrator and mom living in Minnesota, and I'm planning to build the Gloucester for my daughter. I love the simple lines and symmetry of the Glaucester and the absence of "extras" -- since my daughter is still quite young, I chose a house that didn't come with any cute little fences or other pull-off-ables! I also love that the Glau can be opened and closed. I am really excited to get started! The incredible amount of expertise and enthusiasm evident in the members of this forum are really inspiring -- I can't wait to learn from you all. If I may ask -- where is the best place to pose general house-building questions that are not specific to any one dollhouse? (Or is there a general dollhouse-building faq for complete beginners?) For example, one of my questions is: when the house description tells you how many bags of shingles or siding you need, can you assume that you can choose ANY of the shingles/siding sold on the Greenleaf site? If not, how do you know which shingle/siding is recommended? Warmest wishes and thanks in advance, Aimee
