    It's the Little Orphan Annie House by SW Crafts.  It has been added onto one side with the bay window added.  A dormer has also been added to the attic, along with the porch alteration.

    I am liking the dark purple for the exterior, but really am not happy with the lighter purple for the trim.  I am going to have to experiment with a different shade.

    Ignore the green trim.  I used old trim pieces on the bay window.

    It's been relisted at a lower price of $15.00!  Shipping is only $55, so for $70 you will have a GREAT kit.  It is a bit heavy, so the shipping price is not out of line.  These are really nice kits.  Tab and Slot construction like GL, but are of 1/4" plywood. I would buy it, but already have this one in my stash and definitely don't need another!  I am envisioning mine as a great Bate's house with an addition of a center tower. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-SKIL-CRAFT-VICTORIAN-MANOR-W-COACH-HOUSE-NO-6830-UN-ASSEMBLED/264560741157?epid=24035606823&hash=item3d990c8b25:g:ekcAAOSwJUBd5rug

    So I have to update you all on the latest.  Last night we were putting the Christmas decoration boxes back into the attic.  We started cleaning out some items to donate and trash unused items.  He found the Granville hiding in the corner of the attic.  "Where did the big assembled dollhouse come from?"  Me - "What?  Oh, that one.  I have had that for a  long time.  It's just been sitting there in the corner waiting on me to rehab it."  Him - "Hmmm, I don't remember bringing it up here." Of course none of it was a lie.  I drove around for 3 months with it in the back of my vehicle, before moving it to the attic.  I think 6 months is a long time
