  1. Hello All, Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved playing with dollhouses, playhouses and puppet theaters. The surreal time we are all living in with this pandemic has made me reflect and look back at the fond memories and nostalgia for a simpler time of endless hours of fun playtime. Even though I haven't built a wooden dollhouse kit since I was 12-years-old, I have always been the crafty DIYer type of person that enjoys to do projects, so doing an advanced house wouldn't overwhelm me nor using an x-acto knife scare me. Recently, I purchased a wonderful turn-of-the-centu
  2. Hi all, first post here. So for some years after we had our daughters, my wife had mentioned getting a dollhouse kit when she was a little, but it was never built, and lost to time. Well, since both her parents had passed, the other weekend we were working on cleaning out the estate, and low and behold, found a NIB Dura-Craft Victorian (VH-600) under a bunch of old mattresses and junk in the attic! Our daughters were so excited to find it, so we got to work right away. The first thing I noticed is the instructions are horrific. Not just that they've been eaten by silverfish, but the
  3. Hi everyone! I found this site while seeking information about restoring a doll house. My childhood doll house is about 40 years old as it was a cousin's before it came to me. My step-dad had taken it on as a project 7 years ago and apparently instead of fixing it up he slowly let it fall completely apart. I now have two little girls of my own and big dreams of passing this treasure from my childhood on to them. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing but I believe I've figured out where the pieces all go from memory, now I just have to figure out what to do with them/how to replace the broke
  4. Back when I started building the Duracraft San Franciscan, the one made of MDF, I decided it needed a basement, so a carpenter friend of mine cut one for me based on my specs. It's got window openings and an opening for stairs. I'm not asking any money for it, just the cost of sending it to where it would need to go. I think I can get packing materials for free. I've posted some pics, although they're not the best, but they'll give you an idea of the piece. It's made from 1/2" thick excellent quality wood. I decided to go in a different direction and didn't build the house, but I hate to just
  5. This is my second large dh I completed within two months before the quarantine. I found some technical difficulties with the model but am very proud of how it came out! I’m waiting on my box stand to be completed so I can get it off my work table and really dig into Foxhall!

    From the album: San Franciscan Interior

    I made a huge faux pas, I made the loo the largest of the room in the San Franciscan....before proceeding I decided to switch the master with the bathroom....it required re-flooring the bathroom, removing the tile walls and wallpapering. The drapes which I made and stitched every little ring to the drapes and then hung them on the rod I made....to say I way annoyed was an understatement. In the end it was worth every sore fingertip...the master bedroom is elegant and airy yet welcoming. The Bespaq settee sits in front of the windows so the mistress can put on her shoes or read a chapter or t
  7. Hello, everyone! I’m a lifelong miniature enthusiast, although I’ve taken a 10 year leave of absence from larger projects primarily due to workspace and time commitment issues. Over the past decade, I’ve done the occasional small project such as room boxes, but I’ve been itching to get back into actual houses. Big, beautiful houses. I LOVE large projects. I got into miniatures when I was a little girl. My dad’s hobby was woodworking and we built a dollhouse together as a project. It was great father/daughter bonding time, and he taught me so many tec
  8. From the album: The Dollhouse Inc #1600 series Victorian

    So even though I haven't been working on the Jarrell Manor house, I have been tucking away little treasures for it. I found this amazing staircase at the Lancaster Mini Show (5/2019) and thought it would be perfect for the entrance hall. I will just have to make some adjustments in the opening for it to fit how I imagine.
  9. Hello All! On Friday I took my parents to the Miniature Museum of Greater St. Louis. I had been wanting to go back and really take a look at the wonderful works of art on display and to look in the gift shop. I'm still working on the Travel Trailer for my father and then it's on to my sister's Glencroft so I was looking to see if I could find anything for either project. They also had some previously built and loved houses for sale as well as a few kits. While I was passing the kits one of them "spoke" to me I definitely was not looking for anything of the sort but strange how th

    single door is Bespaq but double door seems to be a rarity. Mountain Miniatures claims no double door was ever made.
  12. Hello, i an hoping someone can help me identify a dollhouse. The house is customized by artist Julien Martinez, I put is link further down on this post. I am looking for my first dollhouse, and this one would be perfect, with its glass roof in the attic and ok sized rooms. It does not have to be this exact one, but I am looking for a mainsard roof empire victorian (french/colonial/new orleans style) , with a minimum of 4/5 rooms. Preferably not so large, and also preferably already built, as my main interest is spending time creating the dolls and accssories to go with it.

    Master Bedroom

    From the album: Christmas Surprise for our niece

    This room is so beautiful! Need to paint chairrail and baseboard and install. The Houseworks carpet I attached to tagboard with adhesive photo squares and the tagboard attached to the floor with "real big people" webbed carpet tape from my toolbox (easy to pull up). This room is waiting for the Canopy bed set that I've bashed, or rather, removed the existing fabric and making sheets, pillows, comforter and lace canopy. I'm sure I'm having even more fun than my niece! I love this room and I'm not a "pink" person. Love the stripes, think I'm early Victorian!

    A full shot of the Duracraft Newberg interior. Wallpapered with Minigraphics Wallpaper Mucilage from Hobby Lobby with a foam brush - for my first time, I'd say it went rather well. What is left? Baseboard, Chairrail and the wood flooring that my husband is going to cut at work :-) Mitering 101 for me!
