  1. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    I think the first two are the same seller.
  2. On my Rosedale I painted the flat roof to match the trim.

    The sofa is made by Lee's Line (now discontinued, I think). I used fabric paint on one of the checkered ones because I didn't like the fabric. It came out looking like leather. Not sure how it would work on the butternut sofa with the texture.

    Looks like the Joseph Angel dollhouse? I don't remember all the history, but if you search the forum you should find info about it.

  6. Decoration of front closing house

    Just leave the gap, you don't really have a choice. It's not any stranger than the front of a building swinging open, is it?

    Those look like the shingles that come with the Fairfield.

    A Granville with $99 starting bid: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-NEW-IN-BOX-Old-Stock-Vintage-Heirloom-Series-The-Granville-Dollhouse-Kit/202433320933?hash=item2f21f757e5:g:qxsAAOSw7fhblwBA Bostonian in Arizona with $100 starting bid: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Real-Good-Toys-Bostonian-Assembled-Great-Fixer-Upper/332800944362?hash=item4d7c7b68ea:g:WekAAOSwHn9bhIAP   I saw that on Craigslist last week. The description confuses me... "ALL DESIGNS CUT IN SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA" ??? (Greenleaf is based in New York) "The house was made as a custom project by professional architect." Do you think the seller knows it's a kit and are trying to talk it up, or do they think it's something that it's not? It says the windows are "hand carved", aren't those the windows that come with the kit?
  11. Hi Emily, hate to bother you but I again have duplicates in my Visailian Album...can you delete them for me please when you can? Also can you make the house the cover photo instead o that silly electrical transformer?

  12. Shingles on hinged roof

    Here's the finished roof! There are some more pictures on my blog: http://www.emilymorganti.com/blog/?p=5457    
  13. Here's what I heard back from RGT: "That is a display model for the 'dollhouse center' line of houses.  The original concept for the dollhouse center series was designed around modular components that could be mixed and matched to make a variety of houses... so a basic unit (F4: the side walls, interior walls, and floors) could accept a variety of fronts and roofs, and one selection of parts could be used to pack many, many different houses.  This house has a full front (the F1) plus a tower (A50) and a 4100 series roof (E2 and D95) so that it looks like one of the 4100 series from the dollhouse center line; the most popular 4100 house was the 4107 Norcross Manor. The half scale models were used at sales shows to demonstrate the way a selection of parts could magically create lots of houses and lots of 'looks', and a few shops bought the demo sets for their own displays.  I believe this was one of those (that's why there's a wall inside the tower)." I searched for "Norcross Manor" and found this on Pinterest -- I'm not sure if this is it, because it doesn't have a name on it, but it looks just like my mystery house. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f2/99/c2/f299c266e1909a1419972dc671e265d6.jpg Diane, I hope you don't mind, I emailed them your photo to ask if it was also one of the model houses or a kit. EDIT: Gary from RGT wrote me back to confirm that Diane's house was a kit (the Hawthorne). And here's a newer picture of the 1:12 house similar to mine, it's called the Montgomery: https://www.dollhousestrainsandmore.com/collections/1-scale-dollhouse-kits/products/front-opening-montgomery-dollhouse-kitdh15  
  14. Yeah, the towers are exactly the same. I was looking at it more closely today and saw that the cut into the tower, where it slides into the roof, is meant for a steeper roof pitch (like more like your house) so there's a gap in the tower walls that I'll need to cover up. Makes me wonder if my house was bashed together from spare parts from other kits? I also noticed that the windows are slightly smaller than Houseworks size. I'll have to enlarge them. The front of the house is stamped F1. I couldn't find any other identifying marks. I emailed RGT to see if they can shed any light.
