  1. Hello from Newfoundland!

    Hi, Benni! My grandfather's side came from Newfoundland (Twilingate). This is a fabulous hobby and the forum is so helpful.

    Love the wood paneling for the ceiling - it's such a warm color.

    The floating stairs look great. I'm just glad I don't have to use them in rl.
  4. Showpiece or playhouse?

    I build the houses for children to play with - trying to find a child that will be a little older and gentle. However, I am partial to my (still-unfinished) Chantilly, which has become more of a personal house with things that I don't want to part with, so it is a showcase/play house for me.
  5. what's missing from this little bedroom?

    Glad you found another version. (You never know what you'll get with youtube - and I did a quick search for it, thinking it was the one I've used with my students).

  7. Apple Blossom window replacements

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement! I enlarged them - I took my time and worked as carefully as I know how. Hopefully they will be straight.
  8. So, in July I picked up an Apple Blossom (RGT) house (for free!!)  and it took me forever to strip the paint on the outside. Some windows were missing and others in rough shape. At one point, somewhere, I saw that there were replacement windows for the house. I thought it was on RGT website. But, when I was ready to order them, I could not find them. I ordered the Victorian windows instead, which OF COURSE are too big. The windows are absolutely beautiful, but it means I will have to enlarge the openings. The house is plywood, not MDF, but there is still a risk that they will be cockeyed with my cutting skills.  This is when I say to myself, "It's so much easier to build from a new kit." What was supposed to be a quick refurb has morphed into a big project. I know it will be worth it in the end, whenever that is.
  9. AC Moore closing all its stores

    I hadn't heard this. There is a store not too far from me and I go there for my supplies. I like it better than Michael's too. I'm still getting daily emails for their specials, but I only pay attention when I plan to go there that day. So sad to lose another store.
  10. This is a fun kit to build. It actually took a little longer than I anticipated - I thought I would slap it together in no time - but it is very enjoyable. I did a Pinterest search for campers and found some great ideas there. I'm looking forward to seeing your creation!
  11. Interesting. I have seen these images on Google/Pinterest and they look adorable but I did not know the scale.

    She's living out my fantasy of shrinking myself and living in a dollhouse!!!! Lucky girl!!!
  13. Side wall

    This is so clever. I wish I could be even a fifth as creative!

    I agree about the rooms being small in the Laurel. One thing I would do differently if I build another one is put some kind of window in the living room (but some people solve this by putting on the Primrose addition). It is still one of my favorite houses. Did you bump out walls onto the porch?
  15. Is your house made out of MDF? If so, I don't think it would sag - that stuff is pretty sturdy. If you are concerned, I would echo putting in columns.
