Old and New houses

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I was drawn to this site when I was looking up info about a Wahlmer Old Towne dollhouse - my aunt passed on to my daughter. She originally acquired it in 1978 in Alexandria, VA, USA.  I think the cost was $80 plus accessories.  (Expensive & fancy dollhouse back then. :))

So far I’ve only fully altered an Ikea dollhouse into soemthing more. I let my daughter create the wallpaper and I modified other aspects of it with popcicle sticks and a lot of wood glue. I cut windows into it too.

I can’t stop the ideas running through my brain on this beautiful Wahlmer house now.  hehe

Anyway, I’m looking forward to all the creative people & their ideas on this site!

If you have photos online somewhere you can link to them; once they're in an album in the Gallery you can let folks know they're there and we can either go to your albums or you can copy and paste them into your posts.

      I think we have a Walmer. I’m not entirely sure but this is our first house and I’d like to see picture of completed models like ours! Any input would be appreciated!

      Walmer Foxhall Manor #600 is ready for a new loving home. We are keeping the other miniature houses but this is too big for our new space. It's a large installation- see ping pong table for size reference. See photos posted here: https://duluth.craigslist.org/clt/d/duluth-vintage-walmer-foxhall-manor/6963266066.html 

      Kept in good condition by my perfectionist word-working grandfather in his basement. His 80yr old hands can't manage the intricate parts for quite some years so it's time for a new home. He reinforced the main base area for a better platform. Main house structure is complete but windows were not installed (still in original packaging). One of the additions has been set up, while the Conservatory is still new un-opened in box. 

      Also includes both additions: #603 and #605

      More photos or video upon request.
      Make an offer. This exact kit [but without either addition] is being sold on eBay for much more:

      Would make such a memorable Christmas house display. 
      -12 Rooms. 
      -Front-opening design. 
      -Fancy porch posts and spindles. 
      -Window kits include interior trim. 
      -Step-by-step instructions with detailed drawings.

      Hello everyone,
      Does anyone have any knowledge about the early to mid 1990s Walmer dollhouse line? I'm rehabbing a Walmer house that I purchased and built in 1994 but I can't remember what it was called. Possibly it was called a Brookshire. My memory is that is was part of a series where the house was basically the same but you could order different porches, additions and dormers. The RGT New Concept series seems really similar so might have been something that RGT kept when they acquired the Walmer dollhouses. My house shares a floorplan with the New Concept 1000 series. 
      Anyone have any info for me?

      Discovering that finishing an intact house is not for wimps, but it’s good for learning about process before I assemble one start to finish.
