  3. What's everyone working on?

    Oh I LOVED my Beacon Hill. Some day Im going to remake that dollhouse (originally built it dor my daughter and it eventually got trashed). It can be a frustrating build but just take it one step at a time. You’ll get there!
  4. What's everyone working on?

    Probably should have but the edges were clean and it wasnt super deep so, meh. I arnold Schwarzeneggered it and just cleaned it and bandaged it. Could have done with about 5 though. I hope you didnt have to get too many!

  6. What's everyone working on?

    Hi guys, gals, I’m new here.  First day..first post..i got a Beacon Hill kit for my birthday last week.  I’m a bit more than a bit nervous to open the box and get started.  I’m truly excited to find this group to inspire me and to help me along this long and amazing, and it seems from somethings I’ve read, sometimes frustrating and difficult journey.  
  7. What's everyone working on?

    It's called the "aha!" moment, A phenomenon that often happens during twilight sleep. It usually precedes some kind of demolition activity. In your case, Keith, it came after the unintentional demolition.
  8. Wooden clapboard siding

    It requires a little skill to get the cuts perfect. I use paper templates sometimes to measure the angles properly. I put my windows and doors over the boards to hide the edges. The most important issue is to not use water based glues with this product. I use an oil based construction adhesive. And you have to get the bottom lip perfectly over the board you are placing it over....otherwise the seam will stick out bothering you until eternity.

    Been there, done that; more than once.

    They did a good job....
  11. Wooden clapboard siding

    Thanks! I do like Minimum World. Is that siding easy to fit? I am making the Diana and because there are lots of angles and bay windows etc I was a bit concerned that the sheets of siding would become quite tricky to fit together without obvious gaps.

    Don't know if either of these have been posted before but... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dollhouse-With-Side-Openings/273749396556?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3D3dbb779c9ef741ddba9b4d35ae73acbe%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D264206934088%26itm%3D273749396556&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109 If this were anywhere near me my bank account would already be minus $450. There's definitely some weirdness going on with the wallpaper and the tiles and some other areas (those doorknobs!) but I don't think it would take too much work to really turn this into something grand. I don't think I'd even change the exterior at all. I wonder if the second owner cut those interior stairs in. There are some signs that that is the case. It's really all just an odd mix because on one hand it looks like someone really did some precise and detailed work but on the other hand they didn't bother with to scale wallpaper or floors. This seems like a steal at $300... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Wooden-Dollhouse-with-Furniture-and-miniatures/112674482159?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3D342e2b8230ed4d53b6a02980d96541bb%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D253389016489%26itm%3D112674482159&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109 Looks like a RGT 1700 series with two additions. I wonder why someone would get this far along, including even cutting out the doors for the additions, and then stop. The shell kit alone would've been around $300. Someone should scoop this up because this seems like a lot of dollhouse for that price.

    Well I hope yours did not require stitches. They’re no fun.

  23. What's everyone working on?

    Thanks Sam.  I woke up at 3:30 am due to nature calling and I could not get back to sleep.  So I lay there thinking and of course my thoughts turned to minis (as I’m sure happens to a few of us on here) and I thought... this is a test, a challenge if you will.  So I said to myself, what are ya gonna do about it?  Well I’m not going to let a broken piece of glass get this mini builder down.   Thanks you guys

    Being a “wood” guy, I love the different woods and stains you got going on here.  They all work together really well.   It looks rustic and yet I could see it selling for a lot of money in a highend furniture store.  I’m going to call it modern rustic
