    Very good idea - tracing the outline before assembly and using it as a template ! Why no self adhesive paper any reason ? Can you buy books of wallpaper of varying types like 100 page or is it an individual item purchased ? I don’t have the luxury of just popping down the shop - besides the fact there are no dollhouse or miniature shops in the closest major town to me - it’s over 150ks one way drive . I have to buy online and get items posted. Thanks

    Thank you for the reply . When using wallpaper is it best to use the self adhesive type or the type you apply glue too ?

    Hi guys . This has probably been covered previously- but I can’t find any helpful advice . Although I have built many houses in the past I’ve never decorated nor painted , that has been left up to others . Question : Is it best to paint or wallpaper the interior of a house prior to assembly for ease of getting to certain areas ? Or can this be done effectively once assembled ?  No particular house just interested in what the majority of people do . What is the general consensus - feedback much appreciated . Stuart.

    Hi Samantha yes I did on your advice - glad I did as well  Thank you for pointing me in the right direction 
  11. G’day all from Australia - Thanks for the welcome. I’m an ex Australian Army Infantry Soldier living on a few acres in a small country town in NSW - currently work for the Department of education. Currently have one built house The Stlapleford (Barbara’s Moulding) and I’ve just purchased a Greenleaf Garfield which Is yet to be built , looking forward to sharing my build here . Have already done much searching and reading on this forum. I use to scratch build dollhouses about 20 years ago making at least a dozen but haven’t dabbled in this hobby for some time. Im a very big collector of 1/10 Radio Controlled cars New In Box ( unbuilt ) I have about 300 and about 20-30 built cars on display , I also collect Vintage lego train sets for my grandchildren to play with on visits ,N gauge model railway - pretty much anything not nailed down . Also very proficient in wood working have my own lathe-bandsaw-table saws-drill press and many more - have built furniture in the past. I have 4 children ( all adults now ) and find myself an empty nester ( which is awesome ! ). I also have 4 motorbikes and do a lot of motorbike touring . And have in the last 3 years built my Victorian Federation dream house on my acreage. Umm that’s about it .
