Hi all. I had a dollhouse when I was a child... a Greenleaf Pierce to be exact. My dad built it for me when I was about 8. I loved it and spent hours playing, pretending, and trying to make things for it. Fast forward 40 some years and I no longer have anything but the memories of the dollhouse. I was talking to my husband about it and told him it would be fun to build a dollhouse. He in turn told someone at work who said they had a dollhouse they just wanted to get rid of. Her mother found it on the side of the road with a "Free" sign on it and grabbed it for her, thinking it would be great for her three year old granddaughter. The coworker then said if we would take it then she would bring it to us just so she could get it out of her house.
Here is the house and how it looked when I got it, a week ago.
I'm building my first doll house, The Harrison, and was wondering about the roof preparation. I planned on priming and then painting the interior roof white. But when it comes to the exterior I don't know if I should prime and paint, stain, or just leave it alone until I add the shingles. What is the best way to proceed? TIA
I working in the attic this week, I decided to clean out more of the house kits that I know I will never get to build, and really have no sentimental attachment to them. Just message me for details if interested. I am only charging actual shipping, and if it comes out less than I have predicted, I will refund the difference.
All kits have been stored laying flat.
The kits will be listed on eBay on Friday July 31st.
The Pierce Kit - Open Box. this is actually a full kit and half of another one. It would be great for someone who would like to bash/add on to the original kit. I am not sure all of what is missing from the 2nd kit, but know that over half of it is there.
Woodline Victorian Kit - Unopened - this is not the actual picture of my box. The box of mine is in perfect condition.
SW Crafts' Little Orphan Annie Dollhouse Kit - Unopened - very HEAVY house
Dura-Craft Victorian VH600 - Unopened
Model Homes #1006 San Francisco - Opened Box, But All Pieces are present
Dry fitting the windows, French doors and working on the porch railings. The owner had cut the hole for the French door rather poorly, so you may notice a couple of shims put in to help fill in the gaps. There is also a gap in the railings- I thought I had enough in my stash and came up short! Argh! Off to buy more....
