  1. I have searched the forums and cannot find the answer, so here I am! Hi Everyone!!! I am working on a front-opening Country Victorian dollhouse. When I received it, someone had already wired the front opening with the tapewire and made sure that it was connected to the hinges. Now, my issue is, I have no clue as to how to start the regular tapewire process and how to connect the two. Do I go ahead and put the junction splice and tapewire in the house as normal, but connect the new tapewire run to the hinges that already have the tapewire? I checked the handy dandy Greenleaf Gazette and only see an article for hybrid wiring and not tapewiring with a front opening-like how do you start after the front-opening has already been done? Here are pics of what I mean... Thanks everyone, truly appreciated. I can't continue to put this house together for my cousin until I get it wired correctly!! :-) *And I am up for the challenge!!! **I hope this makes sense! Bre
  2. OH MY. I'm a doof. I took a loooong break from minis and am firing it up again, but have had to refresh on many things. I did the biggest rookie mistake. i spent so much wasted time meticulously installing wall sconces so the wires were under wallpaper and just realized they make ADAPTERS for them. i'd only done ceiling lights and wall plugs. duh me. They look good but such a royal pain to noodle it all through the hardest way possible. ugh
  3. So the Ellwanger House is home....but the client just let me know that the lights aren't working now!? She said that the sconce above the fireplace wasn't on, so she tapped it and it went on. Then she decided to switch off the lights. Twenty minutes later she went back and switched on the lights - and nothing. Could she have created a short when she tapped the light bulb in the sconce? If so- how do I fix this? Just a new light fixture? Do I need a new junction splice? Thanks for your help!
  4. Hello! I THINK I want to wire my Beacon Hill (bought used so renovating, not made from kit) I have the large cir-kit tape wire kit unused from my voyage to minis years ago. Honestly it scares me to pieces to think of doing it, but I bet once I start it's easier than it sounds! BUT the problem is that I wasn't planning to wire it, and I've glued panels to the walls of the main foyer room! They are not floor to ceiling, but are only 3 inch by 1 inch panels, glued about half inch from the floor. Since they stick out I don't think I can just tape wire over top of them. I know you're supposed to be about an inch or inch and a half from the floor, and consistent throughout the house, so I'm not sure how or if I could wire it now. None of the other rooms have had anything done. I have wallpaper for the main entry and a few other rooms, so I need to figure this out before I move forward. How can I make it work? Could I tape the left and right rooms all the way around in the traditional way, and then the entry just for a chandelier?? Could I wire that one room just above the panels? (By going around the bottom of the left/right, then up that wall, into the foyer above the panels, around the foyer, add ceiling wires, then down the wall of the right/left and around the lower area of that room?) Also, can I wire it now, then decide lighting placement later? Or do I need to know exactly what lights I'm using and where they are going before I wire???? And, one more, how obvious are the plugs for lights when you use them?? Do they plug into the house wall similar to how they plug into a real wall? I can't visualize how it works when I know there are wall sconces too, and where those wires go. Thanks!!!
  5. Hi I'm about to build a dollhouse for my two girls (3 & 5). I'm all newbie to this and have just bought the Beacon Hill kit and a Cir-Kit tapewire kit In a day I've managed two finish the main structure of bare plywood (subassembly A+ B). I'm planning to tapewire, prime and paint / put wallpaper on the walls and glue flooring to the floors. I now have some questions I cannot find answers to as I do not want to make any mistakes. Is it better to put the tapewire before or after I prime the walls ? It looks like the spikes to the power outlets etc are too long to match the thickness of the plywood. I'm planning to put distances or are there any other ways to solve this problem ? I'm planning to connect the floors by using the stairwell. I plan a tapewire run along the right partition wall behind the stairs. Is this possible ? Will the stairs put too much pressure on the run ? Any suggestions how to best fasten the outlets (wood glue ? melt melt glue ? epoxy ?) as I doubt the small spikes will be playable. /Lars
