Artply Highland for years.

You spotted a Dodo bird!!!  I thought they were extinct as I haven't heard of one for sale since I started this obsession. Wow what a great price. I second what Jodi  said.

Haha yup. If someone over here bought it, it would make the loss bearable. :glare: You madness girls are great. Stay close to your devices, you may get the call up! :salute:

I don’t know the dh models like most of the people on here, so I had to google your artply highland.  Most of the dh kits are too traditional for my tastes but that Highland I would consider.  Its got a cool vibe to it, a lot of different styles would work in it.  Sorry for the loss.  I feel like you and I could design and decorate a house without to many conflicts in regards to style :cheezy:

If anyone has ideas on a good starting point for a mountain ski house I’m open to suggestions. I have considered the Brookwood... 

That Artply Highland is a fantastic house. I can see why you would want to build it.  I would think the Brookwood could work well as a mountain ski house; I've seen some distinctly chalet-like builds, and the footprint appears to be a good size.  I like its split-level interior, too. The Merrimack is also somewhat similar to the Highland, but it's very pricey in the 1:12 kit (although they do sell just the plans, if you're feeling very DIY) and the footprint would be too big, I think.

I was eyeballing this for a Christmas house.....

Hmmm.. I have seen this before but now I'm looking at it again. It could work if I added a foundation and the side additions. I wonder if I could finagle a veranda on the front? I really want some knarled wood furniture on a porch. :D

Thanks Jodi! I didnt even think to ask my mini friends for help.. it’s s lot to ask you know, especially for a large house kit. I should’ve known you’d come to my rescue!:doh: It was going really cheap too $69USD.. this loss hurt, but maybe there is another kit that will make a great mountain house out there. Maybe something smaller than the highland which would be better for space reasons. (Gotta build a home for your log bed. :D ). If anyone has ideas on a good starting point for a mountain ski house I’m open to suggestions. I have considered the Brookwood... 

 

It's not a lot to ask, Sam. Any time, seriously!

I've got the HBS Craftsman kit from the 2017 Creatin' Contest that I am thinking of making into my dad's family's old homestead house in Butte Montana. It's totally not meant to be an old log cabin, but darn it - I'm thinkin' outside the box! What other kits do you have for "someday" that might work?

You are warming my heart girlfriend! ((Hugs))...  Mini friends are just the best! :D 

I have a Glencroft that I have considered. But I have no idea how to change the outside from English cottage to luxury rustic cabin. The interior isn’t bad for my purposes but I had my heart set on a double height living room with a statement stone fireplace. I don’t wish for much. :D I could just try and find a Duracraft Shenandoah and try to modify the second floor to a loft. Plus of course I want a log staircase. :blush: 

I’ve had a bit of a love affair with this 1/6 cabin by regent miniatures for a while

I know the one you’re talking about without even opening the link.  I love the simplicity of the design.

Yes the Merrimack would be a great ski house. Isn’t it mdf? If it is, it would be heavy which means beaucoup bucks in shipping and a cumbersome build.  It’s the one thing driving me crazy about the San Franciscan... it’s sooo heavy!

It's fibreboard exterior and plywood interior, but there's a $35 weight surcharge, so yes--I'm guessing it's very heavy.

Interesting house. Is there anyone here who thinks this is a super bash of a Bostonian?

https://denver.craigslist.org/clt/d/designer-doll-house/6743414147.html

 

And if anyone is in Scottsdale and wants to get a lot of discontinued Houseworks fancy Victorian windows all at once, we have this house - I figured the cost of the windows and doors alone would probably be worth what they're asking for the house. Twelve single windows, two double windows, and two doors.

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/tag/d/doll-house/6711275984.html

 

And a couple of old Celerity kits for pretty reasonable prices:

I just visited for the first time Facebook Marketplace, and to my surprise, I found lots of dollhouses and miniature stuff at least on my area. Unbelievable deals like this finished Foxhall Manor with 2 additions for $450 OBO!! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/249522989025479?surface=product_details 

and beautiful houses like this one https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/328823961032135?surface=product_details

In my area as well. I wonder how many of the items listed there actually find new homes.

Ahhh yes, I see. It is lovely and would be perfect! Contact the mfg and just ask if they'd make it in 1/12th. Never hurts to ask...

I think there are 16 singles on the Phoenix house. This is another house loaded with those fancy Victorian windows, but in my opinion in this case the windows are kind of engulfing the house, maybe too much for this particular house design https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/108030776712912?surface=product_details 

And this has to be a mistake https://www.ebay.com/itm/Misc-Houseworks-Dollhouse-Windows-and-Doors/223230439016?hash=item33f9922e68:g:mMgAAOSw5oxbs32A:rk:1:pf:0

This is a good price for these long ago retired Houseworks windows.   I had a bunch of these double windows, single windows and doors.  They are beautiful but larger than typical windows and doors.
