  1. Hi Sable, just wondering if you were the Lady that built a Garfield with an open balcony in the top of the tower?

    Or maybe know who did, needing help? Di

      No, I do not know who built that house, sorry.

  2. Christmas window scene

    Hi Dreamer14, I`m sorry I did not ask you what part of your Garfield are you up to? Di

    Hi Dreamer14,  I am building a Garfield and Yes I have put in different windows and doors.  I am also moving the bathroom wall from the side of the staircase and moving it over about two and a half inches. Bathroom will be smaller but I will have a hallway so that the owners don`t have to walk through the bathroom to get to the library. It will also give me some vision into the front staircase area. I have drawn the bathroom interior onto paper  and it looks fine to me. I am also thinking of adding a small room onto the back as it will allow the kitchen table to sit back into it and not clutter the kitchen ( instead of the little bay window that is supposed to be there). I have wallpapered and made all of the curtains, so I`m ready to start to work on the lighting and the gluing up of the walls. Hope we can discus our houses together. Di

    I used, Spray Easy Paint and Prime by British Paints on most of mine (Garfield) and I had no problems. As I`m not sure if they sell this brand where you are I`m pretty sure thay would have something similar.
  6. I have made the same house, although mine was made in China and had no name. Measurements are roughly the same as the Greenleaf Tennyson. I have just read that someone is going to trace these parts for you. Mine was in a similar box but mine was green and very basic instructions on back of box.... I think it was only sketches and numbers, this was my intro to dollshouses I didn`t know anything about them untill then. Hope you get to finish your house  and as you can see from the photos you can make it as fancy as you like, Robyn`s is beautiful, don`t you think

    Hi Louis, Havana Holly is quite right your photos would be a great inspiration to the rest of us. I was looking at this photo and I was imagining all of the things I need to do to my house. It is a really clear photo of the inside. Thank You. Di

    They are lovely and I would like to see the lady when finished, she is very pretty.

    Hi Tanya,   I would like this very much. I started with great gusto but with so many family commitments I fell behind ( sudden stop) LOL. I need to start again, I will have to learn how to put my photos out there.  Di.

    Hi Jeannine, I started my garfield a long time age but because of family commitments it came to a stop. I would like to keep up to you and chat about it if you like. 1.I have made my base floor and have made the timber floor boards to go over it. 2. I have painted , wallpapered , made the curtains put in the windows of course,   But. 3. I have come to the electrics, and a stop. I have asked my husband to help me. But  he would like to just wire it and I had planned to use the copper tape method and put it behind the fireplaces. I am now not sure what to choose?    Can anyone help me by making sugestions? Thank You Dianne A.

    Hi Jeannine,  I am very sorry to hear of this I hope that you wrote them and demanded your money back. Or at least an apology because I didn`t think that they would be allowed to do this.  Were the tiles wooden or cardboard?
