    I am an enabler! 
  2. Too much stuff???

    Perfect!  I was asked the other day to give some ideas for what I wanted for Christmas!  I don't know why I haven't seen this tool before!  Added to my list! PS - you can never have too much stuff!  I look at my stash of boxes in the attic and I think I have OD on windows, doors, lights/chandeliers, and wallpaper.  They will EVENTUALLY make it into future projects.

    They also have a store on Etsy under DollsHouseDirect that has all the same items for sale.

    Here is an interesting UK house that appeals to me - just not the price.  Especially if you add shipping to the US.  I just wish they had some interior pictures. https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Wye-House-Kit-Flat-packed-Unpainted-Dolls-House-Direct/333352694107?_trksid=p2485497.m4902.l9144

    That is the Model Homes Cape May.  It's my current-on-hold-build.  Great house, but yes, pictures will sell it.

    So glad you got it!  I was the one who identified it on the eBay forum from an old Miniatures Catalog.  I am envious! 
  7. Pierce Instructions

    Does anyone out there have a copy they can scan/email me for the Pierce?  I have an old kit,  missing the instructions and some of the parts.  I contacted Greenleaf Customer Service 2 days ago and have not heard back from them. Thanks! Matt

    Interesting idea from the Westville. Makes me wonder what happened to the rest of the house. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F143362212462

  10. Color Choices Real and Mini Houses

    We had to have some of our shutters rebuild and new ones made that were missing. Its not cheap. All are of Spanish cypress to resist rot. But as you, it probably won't matter if we get a direct hit from a major storm.
  11. Color Choices Real and Mini Houses

    Every time I do a dollhouse build, I let the house speak to me on choosing its exterior colors.  I did the same with our full-size house.  When we moved it, the house was tired looking and needed to be refreshed and revived.  I did consult a professional to get the palate correct for the year of the house - 1870.  He came up with about 40 different combinations.  This one jumped out at us, and I knew it was the one the house wanted.   Isn't it funny house our real size houses can speak to us as well as our mini ones? Along with the new colors, we also fixed the porch foundation.  No more solid stucco, but correct piers and lattice panels.  The first-floor shutters were also hung correctly (they bi-fold back, so when closed they do cover each window completely).  Also, so many of the architectural details were hidden.  The brackets above the two front upstairs windows, the crown molding in the eaves and on the porch fascia.  Plus, the trim in the house fascia board. It's been a long haul, but it is finally finished! Before: After:

    What a great house! I knew I had seen it before. It is from The Country Peddler.

    This is the kit for that "expensive, one of a kind" house mentioned earlier in this thread on eBay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F312727858281
