  1. Hi, I have been poring over all the posts on this forum and have found so much incredible information from all of you! However, I have a few questions that I can't seem to get my head around. I just bought the Vermont Farmhouse Jr. kit, and opened the box tonight. I have most of the tools, glue, etc., that I think I need, but I'm not sure about a few things. 1. I would like to have lights in the house but I'm not sure how to go about that. Is that something I need plan/buy now before I even start, or can I put the house together and then work on the electric as I work on the rooms? 2. I'm a little confused about what the extra are in the VF Jr and what is included. For example, many of the houses I've seen have a railing on the staircase and a landing, but I don't see that in the instruction photos. Are those extra? And what about interior doors? Sorry for this but I'm a little confused. Is there anything else that you would recommend to supplement the look? Thanks so much! Mardee
  2. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    So I took Emily's (Fov) advice and tried out a mock-up of a different front stair configuration than I had originally intended. I added a little extension to the front of the porch to allow the first flight to descend at a right angle to the house (I will need to figure out some kind of railing for this.. I don't want my little people swan diving to the driveway when coming home from a night on the town ). The landing at the bottom of the first flight would be the same level as the front garden and their would be a retaining wall under it as indicated (this house is on an imaginary hillside ). The lower flight of stairs would end beside the driveway and they would be enclosed on the front side at least, maybe the backside also, but I kind of like the understair area as storage. There is a little alcove under the porch for access to the basement apartment. It still needs some tweaking, but I like it! Thanks for the inspiration Emily!

    Working on the Landscaping Board today... Still very much in mock up mode... As you can see I've just used random pieces of foam to simulate the lower landing. I may even put another set of three stairs on the other side of this landing facing back towards the apartment door. That way the little occupants have a choice of stairs whether going to the garage or the front gate. The foam will all be covered in water putty or some such product (again thanks to the Greenleafers who made suggestions.) to simulate a painted cement retaining wall. It'll probably have some cracks in it with plants popping out,.. or maybe a garden bed at the top (of the shortened) wall with hanging plants spilling over.. or vines.. I don't know yet but something to soften the effect. It will need to be something that is not caustic to foam.. found out the hard way today that spray adhesive melts foam...

    James has waited a long time for this room to be put together
  5. From the album: Unicorn Emporium

    I used wide popsicle sticks (tongue depressors) to cut the gingerbread balusters from, and used thin molding from Hobby Lobby for the railing. Newell posts are made from square dowels, wooden beads and matboard.
  6. From the album: McKinley staircase roombox

    Included special gifts and remembrances in this box. Also a great place to display the laser cut chandelier!

    Staircase module

    From the album: Arsenic and Old Lace

    This is the staircase module which incorporates the corridor to nowhere. I made these books last year when I first had the idea for this build and couldn't resist having a little play.
  10. I put pictures of the finished roombox in my gallery. I love how it came out.
  11. From the album: McKinley staircase roombox

    Finished the exterior of the box with three coats of clear finish.

    Scrapbook paper worked out pretty well for this--a little tricky to match--I now have a two-headed lady in the corner! LOL!

    Love the little wedding picture of my son and his wife....

    Never tried the wine, but thought "The Maiden" just begged to be used for a miniature.
  15. Hi, everyone Anyone ever bashed the staircase in the Brimbles Mercantile? Like make more open or something? Can the steps be made seen by a railing or maybe 'floating' steps? From pictures I seen the staircase is not supporting anything but itself, right? Can anyone should me light!!!??? THANK YOUUUUU!
  16. From the album: The Great American Dollhouse Museum

    I was rather taken by the staircase in this more upscale Copper Hollow home. I also thought the back staircase that is by the window and leading up to the next floor was also interesting.
  17. Hi, Would appreciate recommendations for applying a shine to wood floors, staircase, doors, etc. I am familiar with MiniWax but would rather use something non-toxic. The flooring I am applyng is Houseworks Red Oak Wood. Thoughts? Would it be awful not to apply a finish of some type? I do like the way the floors look. However, I still have the rest of the woodwork to consider. Thank you! Helaine
  18. Still chugging along on the Bellingham. Does the interior staircase come with a bannister? I see no reference to it. Thanks, Helaine
  19. This is my first doll house. When I was a teen/twenties I used to make high quality doll furniture and sell it at local doll museums/shops. But I never had the room for an actual doll house. I saw the Glencroft at a friends house and she bought me one for Christmas. Of course, I had to add my own touch: I'm changing the roof line. I don't like cropped roofs. I like the height of full roofs. I love the architecture of stairs. A great set of stairs can make any small space look bigger. So I took out the wall and opened up the staircase. I just love how the railings came out. And also I enlarged the shelving beneath the stairs to make it look more custom. I love how grand it all looks. I would totally want to live here. I added a window between the living room and kitchen. I plan to put a stained glass window in it. I started the stone work with vinyl spackeling in the kitchen. It came out great but took forever to carve. And the dust it created was ghastly. Then I read about Paper Clay here on the board. OMG. I love, love, LOVE this product. It was so much easier to do the fireplace walls. I'm really looking forward to finishing the fireplaces and using PaperClay on the stair case wall too. I think I might even add it to the exterior. These are my current images. I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's images so I hope you enjoy mine too! Happy New Year, Bogie
