Schematics for Glencroft


Fred Wegman

Recommended Posts

Hello Fred, I found this post from years ago about the Glencroft schematics. I will attach link from this site. You can click on the arrow to the right, at the Glencroft instructions from 2009 to read entire post. I will also see what I can find online.

Here is the post from 2009:
Do you have the schematic sheets?  If not, PM me and I can send everything to you by e-mail (already did this for someone else recently).  However, my instructions are for a kit bought in the mid-1990's, and I do not know if they have been changed.  The Glencroft is also my first dh, but I am bashing it to make it bigger. 
 
For other things you will need, look under the General ... forum.  There is a lot of good advice there and people will gladly answer any questions you have.  However, to start, do NOT use a hot glue gun - use Aileen's tacky glue or Elmer's white glue instead.  Wood glue is also ok.  Use masking tape for 'dry-fitting' and for holding pieces together while they dry, and have a utility knife (with the snap-off blades) or an ex-acto knife handy to help taking pieces out of the sheets or trimming pieces for a better fit.  Also, have lots of fine sandpaper.  Clamps can be used in some places.  For paint, use regular latex paint in satin or eggshell finish.  Stain and varnish depend on how you want the house to look.  For the wood floors, I am using "skinny sticks" from Michael's stained and glued to an acid-free paper template.  Look around the forums and decide what look you are going for.

I don't have the schematics, I do have the instructions. Hard to tell what parts.   fpwegman@yahoo.com

Fred, do not ever post your personal email address or other personal information in an open forum such as this one.  That's why we have a personal messaging feature, to protect our personal contact info from being harvested by spammers and webbots.

Julie, Sorry to hear that your Glencroft kit has no instructions or schematics.  I did just email Greenleaf asking if they could email me the schematics as well as the instructions.  I know Fred has contacted them too.  I did find the warm up sheet on line.  That should have been included with your kit too.  I can send you the pdf file of the warm up sheet.  The warm up sheet is for all Greenleaf dollhouses.

I emailed re: instructions on how to build this house, and was told it would cost me $8 and they only mail to the continental USA. 

Very disappointed. 

So far I have a beautiful Glencroft dollhouse that I cannot even build since there are no instructions.

Also, go to home page of this forum and look for Community Projects. There is a section for Glencroft Building Blog where multiple members built this house.

The link doesn't lead to instructions, just a blog with pictures - which is lovely, but I cannot follow the pictures while looking at a whole bunch of wooden pieces in a box with no indication of where they go or what they're for. I appreciate the help, but I'm looking for actual instructions. 

I emailed the company asking about it and they said they mail instructions for $8 to continental US only (I am not from the US). Then they stopped replying.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble getting instructions for the Glencroft.  Have you tried sending a message to people on here who built the Glencroft?  It would be helpful if they could create pdf files of the instructions for you. I built a Harrison Dollhouse and I uploaded pdf files for other miniaturists on here.  Another idea, have you looked at the Ebay auction site in your country? Someone may have an auction for the Glencroft with the instructions included.  You could always sell the new kit, or use it for spare parts if any of your pieces are too warped.
