Beacon Hill Basement?
I found my way to this site after trying to identify the two mostly assembled dollhouses I purchased for my daughter and I. One of them I have determined to be the Beacon Hill. I want it to have a "yard" so I purchased a brown IKEA table on wheels to mount it to while still being able to move it around our hobby house. I found this picture and love the atrium and basement concept. Does anyone now if this is a kit you can buy or is something the person probably custom fabricated?
Ceiling is up, needs retouching here and there but my arm must get some rest lol. Now I must cut templates for the bay windows and start working on the pannels. The fireplace will be on that wall (+ 2 wall lights surrounding it), I think I'll leave a wall socket on the opposite side of the room for a floor/table lamp.
Ceiling is ready to be decorated and the templates for the wall pannels are cut, hopefully I will have something more interesting to show soon but this step really gave me a lot of work.... spackle is messy as hell when sanding so I wanted to get all the surfaces ready before I start the detail work. I've decided to use thicker templates for the wall pannels to be safe (2mm plywood... I hope it will work fine for this scale), the gap on top is where the crown moulding will fit.
Next step: assembling the pannels and ceiling decor.
Preparing the kitchen, need to finish the ceiling before I can move on to the woodwork. As I've mentioned in the Beacon Hill Builders thread, I felt very inspired by this kitchen so those are the colors I will use. I won't use cabinets thou, will try a period style this time ;)
Is the beacon hill sturdy?
I am new here. I have been thinking about buying the beacon hill dollhouse kit.
Now I only have experience with the Doll House Emporium houses so I don't really know what the quality is with the beacon hill.
Are the pieces strong ? ( I once had a house from china and the pieces kept breaking).
I just really want to know if the house will be strong and if the pieces are sturdy.
Thanks for the help
