New to Beacon Hill House

Hi.
I am new to this web site and was given a great review from others. So far it
is great. I am new to the Dollhouse world. Since I will never get my dream
house this is the way to go. I got the Beacon Hill house oh??? 2007ish. I love
the style. Very few people seem to feel the same. They all say the Munster's
live in it. I disagree. Every house now in Nevada all look alike. I so far have
most of the outside done. I put on stone on the Tower part. Did not like the
look so I took a hammer too it and removed it. What a mess. Use a drop cloth
next time. I got tired and started working on the inside. I sealed all the
walls and stained the floors Red Oak. I have to say some parts of building were
not fun. I wish I understood how it went together I would have wallpapered as I
built it. Well, next time I will know. Right now the house is Dark green with
light taupe trim with burnt orange accents. I will change the green so it is
not as dark. Love the orange and will keep it. I decided to not wallpaper the
wall directly. I used poster board and made templates of the walls and will
wallpaper them as I am not able to commit to anything right now. I do know
the Parlor is dark red with gold (Lower right room). I will put up photos
when it arrives. Middle right room will be the Master Bedroom. Right now it is
light blue. I am not a big fan of the color so this will most likely change. I
am trying to make it historically correct but due to lack of resources I am
just going with what I like. Mostly Late Victorian. I try to make everything
drapes, bedding myself but have to buy everything else. Well this is me for
now. Feel free to write. I will help with ideas as I can. I will update with
photos as I take them. Thanks Daun

Daun,

Welcome to the forum. It is a wonderful place. If you can't find what you need, ask. Someone knows :)

Since you will never have your dream house: many of us have had or still have dream houses. They are alot of money, alot more work and they control your life. It is waaaaaaaaay more fun to have your life controlled by miniatures.

Enjoy :)

Welcome to the little family, Daun. A terrific source for Victorian interiors is our Grazhina's blog. There is also a book, Victorian Interlude, that had period photographs.

Brenda~ I have a Beacon Hill also but did not build it so can't answer but.....find the topic 'Beacon Hill Builders: Next Generation' something like that (I can't post links) and alot of people will be able to answer.

The Beacon Hill is my favorite house ever. You will find alot of us who are very passionate about this house on the topic. Come join us :) Also, go to the new members section, start a new topic and introduce yourself. This forum is great.
