  4. Catching up in Wisconsin

    Welcome to the little family, Celeste.  I have built the Orchid twice already, once in wood and once in plastic, and I have another that was built with hot glue (recommended in the instructions, NOT by builders of these kits!) to rehab one of these days.  If your clear acetate door & window inserts have yellowed over time you can use flat clear acetate packaging or transparency film instead; clear report covers will also work well.

    Thanks you so much Sable . I love making the ones I keep to fit into my house . Every time I walk in my front door I see this house and I just have to smile. Well this and my two unconditionally loving dogs.  This is the second house I made and it will forever stay with me.

  11. First time builder in Texas!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are no dollhouse stores that I know of in Texas.   The Dallas Miniature show is held in Dallas every year and a couple of members from here and I attend that show.  They have great classes several days before the show and then the show on Saturday and Sunday.  This years dates are June  24th thru the 28th.  It's a great show. and you should definitely plan to go if you can.

    Thanks for the tip, Shannon!  I googled Minneapolis watch repair and there are quite a few so I will at least look into it further.

  16. First Time Builder in NYC

    Hi Michael, Welcome I'm so glad you tried the scribing. I learned that type right here from Kathie too. I works great I have now used it on furniture too. I made a wood table top from leftovers and did it. I think my table looks great. Thanks Kathie for the tip I use it often.
  17. I lost all of my miniatures and miniature-making supplies too! Welcome!

    I build out of foam core for almost everything (furniture, whole structures, etc). I highly recommend it.

  20. hardwood flooring

    I've seen people use vinyl, peel-and-stick flooring that they cut into strips. I'm currently planning to use that technique, and I paid about $1 per "plank."

  23. Do You Believe in Siding After a Build?

    I've definitely sided once the house is built, but I've never had the courage to wallpaper after building. Kudos!
  24. Hello From Colorado!

    Welcome....What a cute log cabin....
  25. Refurbishing Old Harrison Dollhouse

    I've made dollhouse kits more stable by gluing blocks of wood in the corners of the base (under the first floor).  I've put corner trim on vertical outside corners of the house and glued horizontal pieces of trim on the outside walls to cover up the places where the tab/slots are.  Another thing that helps is to put baseboard and cornice molding in the interior rooms making sure walls get glued to floors in the process.  Good luck with your project.
