Hello from Arizona

Although I have never made from "the beginning" a dollhouse, I have in the last few years rehabbed 3 (now working on the 4th) dollhouses. A Country store (which belonged to my mother) she got it at a yard sale and I have no idea what brand it is; a country cottage which I believe is the Arthur; the San Franciscan - given to me by a friend. I rehabbed this one and sold it to my department head for she and her granddaughters. Learned a lot of lessons doing this - one of which was never to do it again for someone other than myself. And now I'm working on rehabbing a Pierce that my brother found at a garage sale. This is the dollhouse that I have a question about - there are three pieces of it missing. They are the three pieces that make up the front entry roof and the front piece to it. Can anyone tell me how I can go about either getting these pieces or some type of pattern that my brother can cut the pieces out for me. Any ideas would be much appreciated. di

Welcome Diane! :D

From another Newbie! I'm working on rehabbing a Pierce also, just getting started in fact. Someone here who hasn't assembled it yet may be able to trace a template of the 3 missing pieces for you. I'd be happy to try for you, I'm just not sure how accurate I could get it.

Thanks for your welcome Jeni. That's what I'm kind of hoping for - that someone here will make me a template. My brother can cut the pieces out for me. di

Hi Diane - welcome to the forum! Hope someone will be able to help with a template. If not, you could always order replacements from Greenleaf. :wave:

Hi and :wave:, Diane! I was going to suggest ordering them from Greenleaf as well. Good luck with it!! I think refurbishing is harder than doing the acutally build.
