  1. Help! I started my first dollhouse and FINALLY got to a finishing point after about a year and a half. There are still a few minor things that need done but it’s finished enough for now (I needed to finish it by Xmas for my daughter). I have made dozens of little 1:24 models in the past and am a little knowledgable in electrical (aircraft electrician over a decade ago) but have since become rusty in the topic. I opted to install 6, small LED lights into the dollhouse, connected by a series of 9v batteries. Since my other smaller models have included similar setups with the LEDs and batteries,
  2. You might like to look @ this if you were lucky enough to get a doll's houses at Christmas
  3. Good day! This is my first post in the forum - go easy on me! I'm an absolute beginner, currently building a 1:18 scale recreation of a local heritage house that was torn down 4 years ago. So far things are going well, but like MANY miniature newbies, I am absolutely confused by the wiring aspect of the build. I have done as much internet research and forum reading as I can, but I'm still not sure if I'm doing the correct thing. So, here it goes. These are my supplies: Cir-Kit Basic Wiring Kit Transformer (FIFODR® 12V 5A 60W DC Power Supply Adapter(
  4. 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

  6. Help! I took on the wiring of my Fairfield dollhouse. The problem is with where to put the wires on the lights & the tapewires. I have looked at the house over & over. I just can’t figure out a way to make it work!
  7. Hi everyone, It has been a few years since I've been on the forum. I was working on wiring the Arthur, ran into a frustration point, and life got busy, but... time to finish this project (or at least make progress again!). To avoid trying to pound an eyelet into the weak upstairs wall of the Arthur I tried using a manual drill someone suggested, but the eyelet connections are really loose and there is not electrical connection in the joined wire because I couldn't hold the drill steady enough (I did try to use the block of wood that came with the drill for support). Is there anything
  8. Hi Folks, So earlier this week I posted about my thrifted dollhouse that I rehabbed for my girls for Christmas. What I forgot to mention was that as I was pulling off the wallpaper, I noticed that the house was already wired...so today my husband helped me maneuver the house onto it's back so I could take a closer look. Any ideas how I connect this to a power source? If there is a good tutorial out there, I would appreciate it if you could sent me in the right direction. You can check out the rest of the photos in my gallery here. Cheers!
  9. The house I am currently working on is a Willow, by Corona Concepts. After watching hours of videos and reading numerous tips and techniques, I decided to go “old school” and install round wiring. The technique I am using could be called “grooving.” I have seen a video on this before, where a builder used a knife to cut a groove across the floor, then glued the wires in it before installing the carpet. Thus, the wires were hidden completely. I decided to use a similar concept, but the plywood floors in this particular kit were so nice that I did not want to use paint or carpet on t
  10. I started a remodel on my daughters 30+ year old house for her daughters ages 6 and 9. To update the outside, I removed the Tudor embellishments, added clapboard, and build new windows. To accommodate the new windows I added foam core to the walls to increase the wall depth. I purchased a new electrical tape system to replace the one that I removed. I am now wondering if the foam core was the best choice to place over the existing walls. Will brads in the tape system hold up in the foam and, more importantly, to the playing activity of a 6 year old? I do not want to swi
  11. Hi everybody Will you be coming to?

  12. Little Houses Plus and Small World Products We have some great news here at Little Houses Plus. After long negotiations, Little House Plus is proud to announce we have just taken over SWP (Small World Products). SWP specialises in doll’s house wiring. Small World Products was run by Martian Butter who sadly passed away last year. You might have known or talked to him at Dolls House Fairs. Martin spent a lot of time looking for good quality products to sell through Small World Products, these came from a lot of diff
  13. So, I need to add at least two lights to the current build. One will be an outdoor light that goes on the wall over the center of the door, and the other will be a wall sconce in the bathroom. I hate to sound dense, but other than using a false wall on the interiors, how do I hide the wire? Both lights will have a hole drilled in the wall, with the wire fed through to the other side of the wall. I may use LED/battery powered lights for the rest of the rooms, so I'm not sure that I need to wire the whole house. Planning to use small battery packs (hidden in furniture) for the two light
  14. Ok...I am about to start wiring my Garfield dollhouse...I keep putting it off by researching the subject. I have read tips and tutorials...they were great...I should know exactly what to do... It is the first step that has me stumped - cannot seem to figure out where to put the junction splice (where it goes from round wire to tape) It can't be inside the house-I am hinging enclosure walls-don't want to pinch the cord. I was thinking about pounding it into the foundation - but thought it may look odd. (should it be up and down or sideways) Then thought, drill a hole in the foundation
  15. Just discovered that if you splice with a flickering light, all lights spliced will flicker (well, it did for me). I spliced 2 sconces with the fireplace light and now the sconces are flickering, could be a good thing, but I think in this case its too annoying. Just an fyi... Test 'em before you tape 'em... grrrr Hope everyones having a great day! Electricity day for me BLAH
  16. Getting ready to embark on my first, lifelong awaited dollhouse. I've chosen Victorias Farmhouse. I can get it for $120 at my local Hobby Lobby and, after some minor bashing, it'll be my dream house. So here lies the confusion.... Hubby's a skilled woodworker and I'm an artist, so I'm hoping we have the "building ability" under control. What were clueless about is the wiring. The house is MDF. Do we buy the book for round wiring or tape wiring? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Oh yeah, what if you decide to add a light or re arrange a room later? Are you stuck with original
  17. Hi, I'm getting to a point of wiring my dollhouse. I want to be able to easily change my lighting and want to use round wires. I'm thinking of just wiring the house with those little plugs that come with wiring kits. Has anyone wired their house like that? If so, are there any suggestions? I really don't want to use tape wiring.
  18. I'm starting another scene in a cigar box, and this time I want it to be "landscape" - with the lid opening flat to be part of the floor. I want to use the little LED battery lights for this - not the lamps, but the bulbs, wiring, and battery that gets installed and built-in. My plan is to have a micro dollhouse on the floor/lid and have one light there, and one light in the main part of the box. QUESTION: If I run the wires out to the micro dollhouse from the main box, hiding them under the flooring, will they flex too much as the lid is opened and closed? Bending wires doesn't sound
  19. 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 supp
  20. I just got the lights and fire boxes for the scratch build...the lights all have plugs (this will be my first time wiring a dollhouse, so I REALLY don't want to mess with copper tape - I am disaster-prone and have accidentally set things on fire before). The fire boxes don't. They each come with a (separate) bulb on two wires...can they be fixed into a plug, or are there bulbs that come on plugs, or what? (Plug-in flicker bulbs would be awesome but are not absolutely necessary.) The fire boxes are FP G017 by Glow Well.
