I've just begun the Magnolia and been away from building dollhouses for some time. I haven't got a clue if I have done it right but it seems to me from the exterior, once the sashes are installed there will be a part of the actual wall showing so I painted that the same color as the trim of the windows. Should I have done that? I know I've done these windows on another dollhouse (the Orchid??) but I can't picture it in my mind.

Any help or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

You did it right, Wendy. When I put the house into dry fit one of the things I do is to go ahead and lay the windows and their trims and door trims in place and then trace around them with a #2 lead pencil. Then I know what to paint to match and what to mask off for later gluing.

Its 2020 and I'm having trouble figuring out where the window sashes are for the Magnolia Greenleaf Dollhouse.  I ve sent several message to Greenleaf with no response. Certainly losing motivation for this new hobby. If anyone can help me please let me know! Thank you for your time!

Carolyn, Here is a link to download the Instructions and Assembly Guide for the Magnolia Dollhouse.  http://www.mysmallobsession.com/dollhouse-assembly-instructions.html

From my reading this guide there are 16 window sashes.  There are two Sheet #8s with eight on each sheet.  They are labeled Single, Double Wide and Kitchen Window on the schematic.

I hope this helps.

      All the window parts. After sanding, filling, sanding, and more sanding, painting, sanding, painting and sealing, the windows are ready for assembly. I chose to glue the top frame in and only the bottom frame opens. This helped make a rigid window frame that can be handled without falling apart. Notice the gluing jig I made for assembly.

      15 windows, 11 pieces per window, 161 total pieces. Nice to have that bit finished.

      Could someone tell me what the ceiiling height of the the Willow Dollhouse is?  Thinking of purchasing and wonder if I would be able to replace the doors and windows with standard dollhouse (non-Greenleaf) elements.

      Hello Everyone! I recently acquired not 1, but 2, Magnolia Dollhouse kits from Corona Concepts. My parents found the boxes tucked in the back of a closet when they moved into a new apartment. When they pulled the boxes out and realized what they were, I got really excited, because I love building dollhouses, and the Magnolia was one that I always toyed with buying. It was like Christmas in July! However, it looks like I’m missing pieces, that I will either need to build myself or reorder. I already know that I’m missing 24 of the 32 window sashes that I need. Let the building challenge begin!

      Hi all- new to this forum and building houses.
      I would like to know how you put in the windows so they don't get glue all over them.
      I also want to know what the best method is to remove wood glue from the windows. Thanks in advance!
