  1. Hi, I am presently building Grosvenor Hall. kit. Has anyone built this one?  The main house has 12 rooms then you can buy the basement which has another  5 rooms including the kitchen and  which I have not got yet so am just working on the main part of the house, but because it is my first ever dollhouse build I have made some bad mistakes, like going ahead with gluing it together before applying any internal finishes wallpaper and moulding for starters,  so now have to add these things in a very tight space. I am certainly learning the hard way though, but still loving it all.

    Amazing house Holly, and also amazing how you built it and finished it all off. Thanks for sharing.

    Cardboard. Yes I know that so will try it out. Thanks again.

    Thanks KathieB for the info. The trouble is I have unfortunately already glued the whole house together and yes, it is really terribly hard to get to places like the back walls and the back of the side walls and I do want to paint the template so will just go ahead and try it out and see how it goes. Learning so much.

    If it is as good as the rest it will be magnificent !

    Thanks so much  for answering KathieB, but how does the thin cardboard go when painted and when it  has the timber pieces glued to it when doing panelling above and below the dado board? How would it hold all this,  especially the paint?

    Thanks Terry, but what is 'cardstock' please? How would it go with all the paint on it and then the thin boards stuck to that for the panelling and dado boards? Would cardboard hold all that stuff?
  8. I will remember this for my kitchen shelves. Where did you get the labels finally?

    It is a lovely big room too and a good idea to combine the two rooms. I love the wallpaper also. Well done.

    The clapboard and the dormers look great, also the work on the porch floor too. Going well.
  23. Don't know what day it is!

    I think you are doing wonders with it, The fireplace is great and the stairs look very professional and work well. I like it very much.

    Hi Clove, yes it is lovely house. When I get further on with it I will find out how to post the pictures of my work for you to see but will be a while,  as I am very much a learner  at this stage and learning as I go but find all these comments so very helpful. It is marvellous really. I am decorating it in the Georgian era which was very elaborate with lots of moulding on the walls and ceilings and with  fancy plaster work on ceilings, over doors and fireplaces and on walls,  so very decorative and I hope I can do it justice.

    Zelda, have you already built Grosvenor Hall? I am asking this as you are working on the basement. Have you done the whole house too?
