  1. Hi all. I’m new here and thought I would introduce myself. I have no experience but purchased my mother’s custom dollhouse years ago at their auction. The dollhouse is almost one of a kind. Her sister received an identical dollhouse the same year- about 1947 or so, they don’t recall exactly. I am ready to renovate it and hopefully one day have grandchildren of my own to play with it. looking for all advice you have- should I do electricity? It currently has no doors or windows and the back is unfinished. Should I cut those in and finish the backside? I want it to be played with- touched, not just to look at. Thank you!  
  2. Taking apart hot glue

    Any tips for dismantling a dollhouse put together with hot glue? I don’t want to take apart the whole thing as it’s very stable. It was assembled 25 years ago and is holding together really well, I want to re-do the windows and put on siding so I just want to remove windows, trim and porch railings. I’m nervous to use a hairdryer in case I loosen things I want to keep intact. Anyone with experience taking hot glued dollhouses apart?
