I have a question on decorating, when is the best time to decorate the interior of your house? I am in the building stagings and want odecorate and put electricity throughout the house.

With the Garfield I papered as I built. Other houses I made I papered after they were done. It all depends on the access you'll have to the rooms once your done building. I didn't wire mine so I can't help you there.

Plan out and wire first, but if you want to see how one person wires AFTER wallpaper, but before floors are in place, see the "wiring" tutorial at spminiatures.

If you are doing the "power strip" method, you still should plan first so you can drill holes for the wires where appropriate before you get too far along.

Other than that, my approach is a sort of higgly-piggly -- but I usually start interior decoration from the ceiling down with the floors last. Also I do not wait for the exterior to be finished to do "inside" if I don't want to, although I do think that finishing the interior first is the better way.

This is a world full of choices!

Unless the build dictates otherwise, I usually prep floors and ceilings first, then start building and decorate floor by floor; but I don't electrify, so can't help you there.

      Hi guys, 
      So excited to start my lifelong dream of building a dollhouse. That being said, I'm seriously intimidated and afraid to remove the 1st piece..lol. Looking forward to meeting new folks with lots of patience who don't mind doing some major handholding.

      Im building my first dollhouse (the Orchid), for my niece, and am struggling to find dolls that will 1) fit in it, and 2) aren’t SUPER creepy. 
      The dolls that I have come across so far are terrible. They don’t necessarily need to be realistic, just cute and durable! Thanks!

      Hello my name is Lauren Parker and I am a psychology major at Flagler college. For my art course I am building a doll house (The Orchid) for my term project. The house will be given to my soon to be 3 year old son, Felix. I am in the process of building. I've decided not to use the plastic window bits. I don't like the looks. So far I've glued together and painted my front door a nice red. It looks good. It has a ceramic pale blue door knob made from a thumb tack. I plan to clapboard or just paint the outside white and the trim and windows in a dark dove grey. The white might be a creamy white or slight grey white. Have any of you put together a house without using the plastic window glass? I am trying to come up with a clever idea for the middle of the bay so it's not just a gaping hole. Any ideas? I hate the plastic.
