Cozy reading roombox
I finally found a room that inspired me to start building again!
Local artist John Dowd's house in Provincetown. The photo is by photographer William Waldron & it was done for Elle Decor magazine.
Where I'm at now:
Floor, walls, & paneled stair wall constructed...nothing painted yet.
I finished the bookshelf & tried my hand at making an oar - I shall try again

I need to tackle the staircase & landing next, & those shutters!
I am new here and would love some help. I purchased the RGT painted lady as my first dollhouse to build. However upon research, I have discovered that this hobby is not only expensive but it is also extremely difficult. Does anyone have a site or any help as to the best way to start? I opened the box 2 weeks ago and became instantly overwhelmed. I haven't touched it since. I was looking to make it as realistic as possible.
My First Dollhouse Room!
By Charming Cuisine
Hey friends, I'm new here, and wanted to show off the first dollhouse room i ever made! All the furniture was made by me using walnut, and the floors and windows are with basswood. The walls are actually foam board covered in plaster. I was able to emboss the brickwork right into the foam board, and then use a polishing powder to fill in the grout.
The door was also made of basswood, and the stone is polymer clay. The food you see in the photos was also made by me. ;3

Not from a kit but my own design
New member and starting my first of what I hope is many more adventures in building. As I was looking around the house I discovered a great deal of plywood from different projects: Akume of different widths from building a small boat and a kayak and thought why not use it to see if I could actually build a doll house from it's thin enough to keep it from being to heavy to move around and sturdy enough to deal with the efforts of working on it. So have been looking through the holy grail of miniature books for the past few weeks and I have finally gotten to the point starting to construct. I've drawn up what I hope is a workable house design. with the size rooms I want. I've got enough wood and plywood to at least get started. The only thing I'm thinking about rethinking is whether I want that front porch or not. Any suggestions would be helpful. This a complete do it yourself plan from the bathroom and kitchen fixtures, all furniture, windows, doors and roofing material.
