  1. Ok I need some help giving an ID to this beauty. My Aunt built it for my cousin many moons ago and now she has a home with me. It is a very special project to me. I am looking to ID her so I can take my next steps when ordering some stuff.
  2. Today I brought home a very used Fairfield that is in need of a lot of TLC. Would love tips on 1. Possible disassembly to make decorating easier/ suggestions on opening up the tower room...or not. I wanted to reconfigure the staircase but that looks impossible- although I’ve seen it done with this model, hence why I’m asking about disassembly. Also wondering what tools are best for cutting into wood cleanly, assembled or otherwise. 2. Electricity: I have a tape wiring kit but have never done it. House has been cleaned and sanded. Figuring out swatches for exterior paint right now. I have a basic outline broken down chronologically and room by room. My goal is to have electricity working and the exterior painted by mid October 2019. After that I will focus on one room at a time. Thanks for your help! I look forward to getting to know you all.
  3. Hi all! I have recently acquired my first dollhouse, which is also going to be a fairly involved renovation. I'm almost certain the maker is Real Good Toys, but I can't find anything about it online. According to the parts list that came with it when I bought it, it's called Fox Hollow. Anyone know if that's right, or anything more about it? Thanks!
  4. Hello, everyone! My name is Erika and I'm a miniaturist living in Orlando, FL. I've been making miniatures for about two years now (I specialize in food and home/holiday decor), but I just acquired my first dollhouse (a fixer upper) and thought this would be the perfect place to learn and share throughout the process of rehabbing it. When I'm able to post photos, I may need the benefit of your collective wisdom to help me identify the house. I purchased it off Facebook marketplace from someone who didn't really know anything about it. Based on the instructions and printed materials that came with it, I'm estimating that it's from the 1970s. It appears to be a Real Good Toys model called Fox Hollow, but my research on that name didn't turn up much of anything useful. Anyhow, it needs quite a bit of work, but I'm really excited about the prospect. I'm planning to start my renovations on the exterior before moving inside. It needs repainting - especially the porch, which is blue and not really the look I'm going for - and the clapboard siding is warped in several places, so I'm not sure if I'm going to replace it all or just try to fix the sections that are damaged. I've been reading quite a bit here in the forums over the past week or so and am looking forward to learning more from all of you! Best, Erika
  5. Hello all! I picked up this "less than beautiful" dollhouse for $65 and am redoing it. Any suggestions on what to do design wise? Craft wise? Technique wise? This is my first dollhouse and I want to make the effort as painless as possible! P.S, if anyone knows what the name/manufacturer of this dollhouse is, that'd be great! I believe it's a kit, because it has pegs/holes for many of the pieces that go together.
  6. Hello Everyone, I recently bought this pretty red dollhouse at a rummage sale. Probably the nicest old dollhouse I've ever had the chance to rehab. All I have to do for this rehab is clean the house, fix some of the porch railings, and replace the yellowed/torn/sticker covered window "glass". Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what house this is. Definitely a kit. Slot and tab construction. There's an extra room added onto the kitchen, but I'm pretty sure that is part of the kit. The last house I brought home was an old Greenleaf Van Buren, and the windows are similar to that. So my guess is that it's another Greenleaf, but I'm not sure.
  7. From the album: Doll houses

    Here is the front of my Duracraft Farmhouse 505. I purchased it through a local online buy-sell-trade group, fully furnished for $60! What a find! I'm so excited to redecorate it!
  8. A promise made eight years ago has come back to bite me and friend Norma Jeane. Does anyone recall the Duracraft VH600 that NJ and I rehabbed/finished for a charity auction to benefit our local hospital's cancer center? See it here. The people who bought it donated it back to the hospital. NJ and I agreed to set it up again when they prepared a display area. Well ... eight years later, the cancer center is finished, but the new people in charge have decided to put it on a roll-around cart, so it can be shared among three main waiting rooms, and expect us to design and built the cart. (Get serious, people! We don't plan to do this; working on alternatives.) Meanwhile, the house and contents have been stored for eight winter/summer cycles in the donor's uninsulated attic here in the Heartland. The woman told NJ over the phone that it was "a bit rough". Ha. NJ saw it briefly last week and reports that several pieces have come off and the spiral staircase is in 3 pieces, for starters. Haven't yet check the wiring or unpacked any of the contents. The hospital has given us a room to work on it, which means we'll have to cart tools and supplies to the site. We're going over there later this afternoon to check it out more thoroughly. After spending months and considerable funds from our own pockets doing the original good deed (it netted the hospital fund $4,000 at auction), we thought our work was done but for putting the contents back in order. We each have extremely busy schedules this summer and are not excited about this. Especially since the hospital folks contacted NJ last December to ask us to do the set-up, which we agreed to do early this past spring. They only just now are moving forward and expect us to jump to it. I feel guilty about not wanting to spend more time on this project, but I also want to see the house enjoyed by visitors to the hospital. Can you spell c-o-n-f-l-i-c-t-e-d? <signed> One Unhappy Camper

    Progress.

    So much progress in just a few short weeks. I'm really starting to feel good about this!
  10. I need a little advice on a situation. I recently purchased three new kits, two partial builds and a bunch of HoM furniture kits still sealed in their boxes. The seller is a miniaturist who does mostly HO and N scale. He does some beautifully detailed work and has won some national honors. The downside is that he smokes A LOT. I would have turned around if they weren't such a good deal. They all REEK. I let them sit out in the open in my garage for a couple of weeks. I then wrapped the individually in bags with a lot of charcoal. Much of the smell has subsided, but it is still pretty noticeable. I am going to primer all of the kits as I build. I am hoping it covers the rest of the smell. What have you done in the past in cases like this? In my previous hobbies I would occasionally run across this and cat litter or charcoal always worked. This is larger scale and smokier. I am open to any and all ideas. The new in the box kits are Bobbi, Tennyson and Pierce. The partials are a Coventry Cottage and a Tiffani. There is enough here to keep me busy, but I am impatient about removing the smoke smell. Thanks for your input!
