Hi, Everyone! I am new to the Greenleaf Forum. I live in Fairfield County, CT. I have loved tiny things since I was a child and from about age 9 into my teens I loved decorating my childhood dollhouse (a four-room tin house with an "addition" of 8 rooms thanks to two liquor store boxes, haha) and making mini things for it. I really didn't pack the house away until I went to college, but then for about ten years I didn't think much about miniatures. Then I found a dollhouse kit at Goodwill and put that together and decorated it sort of on a whim. Ten MORE years went by, and my mom sent me a little quarantine birthday care package that contained a miniature room kit, which I finished putting together a few weeks ago. I started poking around on Instagram looking at some of the amazing things miniaturists do, and now I am wondering why I haven't been making miniatures and building things this whole time! I think I didn't realize what a large community of people it is. It sort of felt like something I enjoyed as a kid and almost didn't realize could be a hobby for me as a "grown-up", too. So here I am! I just bought an Aster Cottage kit, and am slowly getting ready to put that together with a Christmas theme, but I'm doing lots of reading and preparing because I want it to look great :-)
Oh my goodness, I so happy I found this forum. Super excited to get to know all these creative minds. I have zero experience building dollhouses - well as an art student 100 years ago in HS, I did create a miniature Shakespearian Scene for my English teacher. That’s it!
My husband purchase this dollhouse for my at a Fleamarket. I’m planning on rehabbing it ;-)
Good day! This is my first post in the forum - go easy on me!
I'm an absolute beginner, currently building a 1:18 scale recreation of a local heritage house that was torn down 4 years ago. So far things are going well, but like MANY miniature newbies, I am absolutely confused by the wiring aspect of the build.
I have done as much internet research and forum reading as I can, but I'm still not sure if I'm doing the correct thing.
So, here it goes. These are my supplies:
Cir-Kit Basic Wiring Kit
Transformer (FIFODR® 12V 5A 60W DC Power Supply Adapter(Input 110V-220V,Output 12 Volt 5 Amp 60 Watt) DC Converter LED Driver Lighting Transformer for 12V 5A Flexible/Rigid 5050/3528/2835/5630/5730 LED Tape Strip Light FD-ADP60W)
Lights (Pre Wired DC 9-12V 3mm Water Clear LED Diodes White Light)
First question: Will the lights I purchased work with the tape wire kit?
Second question: I will obviously need to purchase extension wire for the lights - what type of wire am I looking for?
Third question: My house is mostly foam core on the inside, but the outside walls will be wood. I'm thinking of only installing the tape wire to the wood outer structure and laying/hiding the wire through the house, linking to the outside tape wire (does that make sense?). Will that work?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!
