  1. Hi, my name is Beth. Not only am I totally new to all this but I have been lost for a couple years and am looking for a direction to go. Let me explain just a bit... My mom (my best friend) was the miniature enthusiast, she had been collecting everything from the building supplies to the people and all the furniture, etc. in between. Many different scales and lots of years of collecting. My mom became ill and moved in with me and I cared for her until she passed 2 years ago. I acquired all my moms treasures which most had been packed/stored for 20 years. After 2 years, I have finally
  2. Hi! My name is Dawn and I am from Alabama. I got interested in dollhouses about 14 or so years ago and bought a Dura-Craft Newberg. I started to put it together, but messed up some of the parts, so it's still in the box. I've had three kids since I bought it and they, along with other things, have kept me busy. I am hoping once we move later this month I can get it put together with replacement parts I have found. I kind of live in a dollhouse. lol It's 768 square feet and I live in it with my husband and our children who are 12, 4, and 2. We have replaced the floors, refurbished wall
  3. Hello! I’m from Atlanta, GA and I’ve decided to start on a lifelong dream of mine of having a miniature dollhouse. I’m going to start small with the Orchid because I don’t know what i’m doing. When I see all the beautiful houses out here and custom furniture, accessories and stuff, I’m in awe. You guys are so talented! I’m not a crafts person so all of this looks extremely difficult and looks like it requires a special gift. Kudos to all of you. Wish me luck. I’m going to need it. If anyone would like to share any words of wisdom, I would greatly appreciate it. I really am sta
  4. Hello everyone! I’m new here. My Greenleaf Beacon Hill kit finally came in today! I’m a bit nervous as this is my first dollhouse build. Can anyone share some tips on what helped you? I heard the instructions are kind of difficult and hard to understand. I’ve been watching the YouTube videos and I can’t find one that is like a step by step. I already know some of the changes I’m going to make or other builders suggestions that I’m going to use. I’ve got most of the starter supplies: the glues, the clamps, painters tape, the ultimate cutter from hobby lobby, stains and some mini screwdrivers an
  5. Hi folks, I’m Deborah and I live in northern British Columbia. I completed one dollhouse with my mum (Dura-Craft Newburg) many years ago. My current plan, but we know how those can change, is to do a Greenleaf Westville set vaguely in the 1930s-1940s. After that I’m thinking of doing a Beacon Hill (anyone else watch Teen Wolf?). Although I also want to do a Glencroft and a log cabin (based on Laura Ingalls little houses, that’s blamed on a, uh, thanks to a member here although I cant remember who it was). So little time, so many little houses!
  6. Hello, My name is Jen and I have been a member since last year, but haven't completed my profile until now. I live in St. Louis, MO and have a wonderful mini support team consisting of my awesome husband and sweet daughter. They know that they must be careful in my "delicate" work room, but that most dollhouse stuff is allowed to be played with and enjoyed. I became interested in building dollhouses last year when my daughter received an Arrow 10 room dream house as a gift. It needed some rehabbing, so I thought this will be a nice project for us to work and play with together. Aft
  7. Hello, my name is David and I live in Kentucky. I purchased a Beacon Hill to build for my daughter after we went to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis and she fell in love with all of the dollhouse and dollhouse-related exhibits there. I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I am not particularly worried; it'll just take steady work, assuming the cats don't attack it. I'm on the forum looking for particular help with the instructions from time to time. Thanks for anyone that can help me!
  8. Have an outstanding, totally unfinshed Thornhill house, with all of the separate windows, doors, siding, etc., including instructions. About 30 years old. Would like to sell.
  9. Hello! I've only perused this forum a couple of times, but my mom and I both adore miniatures. We worked on a house when I was a kid, but unfortunately, we were both utterly hopeless at decorating the interior. Recently, we've come into possession of another very large, very beautiful, mostly finished Hofco house. I love looking at others' work, and am actually hoping to find someone in our state to potentially hire to assist us with the process of finishing the interior of our house, and was wondering what the appropriate section in the forum to post that sort of thing might be? Of course, if
  10. I'm new to building minis but have loved them for ever! Just received three fir christmas to build! Super stoked! The arthur Becon hill And a bird house general store that I'm in the process of converting from home tweet home Look forward to reading everything on the forums!
  11. Hello, So a lil intro.I didn't know what to do for this Christmas with my nieces and nephew so I got bored on pinterest(my deadly enemy) and decided to make something for each kid using popsicles. Yay.. Not. For the smaller ones, they are getting a barn and stable with real toy tractor and horses. The older ones are just now old enough to enjoy things like dollhouses so I wanted to make them each a house. Things changed. My brother and his wife are planning for a divorce which I think Is great(if you met her, you'd be happy too) But It brought up an old is
  12. Hi Everyone, Greetings from Brisbane Australia! Last weekend I bought my first doll house kit, the half scaled Fairfield, and eagerly await it's arrival. I've been reading up this morning about everyone's experience with the building process and have enjoyed looking over all the lovely finished houses in the galleries. It feels a little bit daunting as I'm a bit of a perfectionist and of course have never done a dollhouse build but I'm excited about the challenge! I'm sure i'm going to have many silly questions to ask along the way, so I apologise in advance ;-p Lo
  13. I'm just getting started on my first dollhouse. It's a half scale Greenleaf Jefferson kit. I had a rough start, the first one was warped. Greenleaf has excellent customer service and sent me out another on right away though. So far it's coming together really well. I'm looking forward to participating on the forums -I really needed a hobby and I am so excited about it! Any tips on DIY furnishing/decor projects in this scale? I'd also like to find a source for nice half scale dolls or figures.
  14. Hi out there, A new member from Florida working on a doll house from scratch. Going slow and getting right I hope looking forward to reading and learning as I go along
  15. Hello everyone! I can't express how excited I am to be among you! Let me first say that though I am an avid doll collector, I have never, ever built a dollhouse! This new journey on which I am about to embark however, has been in the works for decades! About 20 years ago, I purchased a Willowcrest kit from Ben Franklin when they were going out of business. It was to be a project for my (then) teenage daughter and I to do together...as soon as we had space and time. Well life had other plans...job transfers, relocations, etc, and that dollhouse faded into the background and was
  16. Hi! My name is Liz and I reside in PA. So excited I finally feel like I can stop lurking through and join the community! My husband bought me my first Greenleaf and I am so excited to start! I am a lover of all things miniature and have been pretty much obsessed with dollhouses since I am a little girl. I collect from the Victorian Era so that era tends to also be my favorite dollhouse. I have scanned the forums on and off for a long time and am excited to be able to legitatmately be able to join in! I have another dollhouse I got from Craig's list for pretty much a song al
  17. Good morning, all! I just wanted to stop in to say hi and introduce myself! My name is Jess and I'm currently working on my first dollhouse. It's a Dura Craft Columbian. I came across this site trying to source some missing pieces from the kit I've acquired. I've always loved dollhouses and miniatures. As a kid I had always wanted a dollhouse but never had one. I would constantly make my own miniature items to use for my Barbies and other various figurines I had as a kid. I'm a mother of four, my youngest is a girl so I am enjoying doing this all over again, especially with a real dollh
  18. Hi, everyone! I just wanted to say hello and that i'm so excited to start my first craft-making hobby! I was wondering if anyone could help me start out? I have no clue where to begin with building my own 1:12 dollhouse from scratch. I hope to start competing in the next couple years! All I really bought today was a Doll House magazine that just shows how to create miniature furniture and items. I couldn't find any doll house building books or anything at Barnes and Noble either. Is there any videos/articles/books that is for beginners? I also have a couple questions! (1) For 1:12 doll hous
  19. Hi my name is Jodie and I am new to this site. I recently bought the Garfield Dollhouse Kit. I started it in December and got totally carried away with it. I decided to adjust the my dollhouse by adding a basement to it. This might be pretty ambitious for a first timer but I figure dream big. I am looking forward to reading tips and to seeing what other ideas everyone is coming up with. I started a blog for friends and family at www.jdsdollhouse.com if anyone is interested in checking it out. I would love to hear thoughts and comments.
  20. Hi! My name is Carrie and I am a new member to this site as well as to "dollhouse building." I bought a pre-made dollhouse (homemade) at a miniatures show in Lakeland, FL last year for my granddaughter and was instantly smitten. For Christmas, my husband bought me RealGoodToys-Victoria's Farmhouse which I have yet to start bidding. To be honest, it looks a bit daunting. I am a mother of three and a grandmother of two with another on the way! I am looking forward to learning all I can about dollhouse building and hopefully, making some friends along the way.
  21. Hi all! My name is Halle. I live in GA and have recently fallen in love with dollhouses. I'm working on the Primrose right now. I know it's only an addition to the Laurel, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy. In order to getting ready to build, I have already been reading through your guys' forums and learning all sorts of tips and tricks. I can't wait to really get into this hobby and buy more dollhouses! Any tips or information you guys want to give me would be sooo appreciated!
  22. Hello all. My name is Emma, I also go by Squirrel. I've finished The Orchid, and The Primrose. I'm currently working on The Willow and The light house keepers house(in 1/24 scale). I have a blog at emmasminipads.blogspot.com. Please feel free to take a look, comment or follow. (Whatever you'd like) I'm currently 20 years old and living in St. Louis, Mo. On a more personal note I think i'm going to stick with the 1/24 scale from now on, I like it a lot better.
  23. Hi! (waves) I'm almost done with my first house, the Orchid, and thought I'd come check out the online community. Looking around the gallery, my poor little house needs a LOT of work, lol... ~bunny
  24. Hi everyone. I'm happy to be here. Little bit 'bout me... I've been a miniature enthusiast since I was knee high to a cricket. Humble beginnings started with an aunt who had a large suit case full of plastic dollhouse furniture for me to play with on her dining room table. I've been a miniature bear artist for years, and enjoy all scales of miniatures - 1/144th to 1". I've built a few houses and room boxes but when it comes to electricity and many other things - I get ghost white and run away intimidated, thus the little bears I create have yet to know what electricity is like or other modern
  25. Hello, mini-makers, My name is David and I've been lurking in this forum as I began my Beacon Hill build. First let me say that the artistic and creative skills demonstrated by the members of this forum are truly impressive. I can't tell you how many times I've thought "WOW!"s while looking at the work you've posted. I am new to building minitures, but I've thought for some time about building a dollhouse for my daughter who just turned two. As I've done a bit of precision and 1:1 building with metal and wood, my original intention was to design and build something from scratch.
