Scale of dollhouse
I am excited to be here. I just found this new hobby and passion yesterday.
To be honest, I can't wait to begin building! But there are so many things to consider before jumping into it.
I have tried to find out which scale I want to build.
A lot uses 1:12 inch scale. And I am sorry, but I don't get the inch scale. I have tried to google it in centimeters, which is what I use.
If you take this door for example: http://www.hobbylobby.com/Crafts-Hobbies/Dollhouses-Miniatures/Building-Electrical-Components/Miniature-Carolina-Door/p/21689
Then in centimeters it should be 19.69 high and 8.57 wide and 1.27 thick.
Is this a 'normal' scale to use? I think it sounds a bit large for a dollhouse/miniature house.
Brand newbie needing advice please!
Hi y'all! I'm really just looking for guidance, if possible. I know nothing about dollhouses or miniatures, but I recently found my old childhood dollhouse from the 1970's and don't have a clue what to do with any of it. I'm very sentimental, so I can't just toss it, but I need to find out about how to go about selling it, and selling the furniture. It was a kit, all wood, with a bunch of furniture (made in Korea?)...Is it intrusive to upload a few pictures to see if anyone here could point me in the right direction? Thank you so much for any help! Oh...I'm Kim and in Marietta, GA...
HEEEEELP!!! (Oh, and Hello from Nova Scotia!)
Hey all. So, I know there was a few people in the forums when I just googled 'willowcrest building instructions', and then I signed up and can't find those same threads.
I inherited the willowcrest kit (bought in 1990) when my mother in law passed.
But, there are no instructions in the box. Does anyone have an electronic copy they could email me? Pretty please??
Thanks in advance.
Need Help - Yellow Windows
I'm fixing up my old dollhouse from when I was a kid. I am NOT an expert at dollhouses ;) My problem is many of the windows are yellow now. About half of the windows are in the house and half have not been put in yet. Is there anything I can do other than taking out the windows and redoing it all? What material do you suggest using that won't yellow? I would put glass in them but don't want to risk it breaking if a kid is using the house.. and I don't see how it would work anyways since it is way thicker. Many of these windows slide open. Thanks for any help.
Dura-Craft farmhouse fh505
I bought an fh505 for $30 from Craigslist about 2 years ago. I love making miniatures and finally have time to build the house. This is my first build and I am having a little bit of issue with construction. I have read the instructions many times over, and I've examined the pictures, but I'm still not sure I'm assembling it correctly. I don't want to mess it up. Does anyone happen to have any pictures of their progress AS they are building? Im a visual person and hope if I can see the way someone else is doing it, it might help me to figure out if I'm doing this correctly. Thanks in advance!
