  1. That's really interesting! I enjoyed the pictures in your albums!
  2. This is exactly why I went with 1:24 - If I had all the amazing things available in 1:12 at my disposal, I would have to move into the dollhouse myself because I would be BANKRUPT and homeless. I had to level the playing field just a bit before heading off into a new hobby. 1:24 should keep me honest. I hope to make many things myself.
  3. I don’t think I’m going to do brick. There is a very famous Fairfield on the internet that captures this look almost exactly and I’m afraid I am going to be slightly unethical and largely copy that artist’s exterior plan. I have no idea what the real house looks like inside so mine will be original. I plan to use William Morris paper in most every room. 
  4. Hi! I’ve been lurking a while but think I’m ready to commit now. ;) I haven’t built a dollhouse before but have done a lot of diorama building in 1/6 scale. I didn’t *intend* to build a dollhouse, but a few weeks back I was randomly googling around and saw someone’s Fairfield build and instantly knew it was the right house for me. I don’t think I can post pictures yet so I’ve started an album at my Flickr here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/144333381@N04/albums/72157711471679943. Just a few pics now of my dry assemble. It’s probably going to be a while before any real construction starts as I am waiting for supplies and designing things. I have some structural changes I want to make and have a little more “how to” knowledge to gain before I tackle it. Until I have a good plan laid out I will probably hold off starting anything too involved. Thanks to all of you amazing people for your extensive posts/discussions – I have learned SO MUCH already from the experiences of others who have gone before me! - Melissa -
