Spring Cleaning time!!   I fell behind in deleting the old posts in the old topic. After deleting 10 pages (one post click at a time) I decided

Here she is - the new $60 baby: I haven't been working in 1:12 in a long time, but this will be fun break in between 1:48 projects. It seems so HUGE

If so, is it one of their MDF models?

It is a DC Queen Anne house, I have one of this vintage kits, but mine is in plywood, I don't know if they made this specific model in MDF, good question Holly.

I don't know how many of their older kits Dura-Craft re-issued in MDF before they bellied up, I mostly recall they did the San Franciscan and I think the Marquam Hill.

While looking for hours for some nowhere to be found mid century forniture for my Highland, I found this 2 extremely rare (and in this case also pricey!) Miners 1/2" scale Living Room and Dining Room sets. I know somebody here was after them before:

Those are VERY cool! But yes, very pricey too!

Oh, wow.  I missed this initial posting.  These would look fabulous in the Merrimack, but they are way out of my price range.  I can only use them for inspiration.:(

I am waiting to see if they actually sale this kits at $200 each, because they are nice and everything, but realistically WAY too expensive. 

They aren't kits, they are pre-made and include the little roombox and all the accessories. Still pricey though.

It's not the Lawbre Farmhouse. I thought it might be the Celerity house, but I don't think it's that either. I don't recognize it straight off, but there are so many farmhouses and they all look sort of the same. I'm not familiar with them all.

Does anyone know what kit this is, or if it is a kit? It looks like it could be one but I'm not sure. I think this house is cute as a button but I'm not interested in the price.. lol

So if it is a kit, I'd like to keep an eye out for a cheaper one. :D

Except for the brickwork on the first floor I'd guess a Dura-Craft?

I thought the trim looked like a dura-craft too Holly... I'm surprised that it isn't because nearly every house that I like ends up being a dura-craft for some unknown reason... lol

Oh my goodness Samantha, I just found out from Cathy that the house I bought for US $40.00 is the Franklin. Granted, mine needs a bit of work but not a lot.  I posted a picture of it to see if I could find out the name.

Yes, I saw your post and was about to answer when Cathy C did. I only just found out it was the Franklin too. I really like this house. I particularly like how they changed out the windows on the expensive one I found. You could probably do that to yours if you want to. I have to admit I'm a bit jealous at your find.

We don't have craigslist over here or a large dollhouse community & the few locally made commercial dollhouses don't float my boat, so finds like yours are non existent. Shipping a rehab from the USA would be cost prohibitive so kits are all I can get unfortunately. :cry:

I was so excited to see the pictures for ideas on that link. I saved them all so I can look back. I am so new at this so I will be asking many questions and searching the internet for how to's. I just hope I can do it justice.  Craigslist has its ups and downs but I can't imagine not having the resources to go to. I love repurposing things and finding 2nd hand items. It's a shame you don't have a bigger dollhouse community. Are you from Australia or Did you end up moving there?
