That is one heavy house and has resin/molded landscaping.

There is no bathroom, but there is an outhouse. And no dining room but instead a country store addition to the house. I got this house years ago via craigslist. It is a lot of fun if you get it at a good price. Shipping would be really difficult.

Anyone have any idea who designed/put together the Franklin Mint houses? I really have enjoyed mine. I always wonder who designed the entire setup - the furniture and house design, wallpapers. It was a big project whoever did it. And they did it quite nicely - the Norman Rockwell house is really charming - my only beef was there was no kitchen and the 2nd floor staircase needed a banister. The two english cottage houses are super cute. And Heartland is the biggest offering - and the folk art is really nice. Very pumpkin/farm/dutch blue. 

I wish they'd done a few more houses -even just to look at. I could never afford the retail price for them - I got mine second hand of course! They aren't a common occurrence, but you just know they are out there.

I’ll have to look for my old Franklin Mint catalogs!ir seems like they had the back story of each house and a bit about the designers for each house they did. I’ll check my bookshelf today and see if they are still out and not in a bin in the garage.

They definitely had stories about Violet Schwenig's Rose Cottage, and Teresa Politowitcz (sp)'s Hummingbird Cottage - which, are basically the same house but one has a thatched roof and some slight variations in landscaping. They really are the same in most every way structurally - and even share furniture pieces, but their palettes and accent pieces (roses or hummingbirds) are different.  I have both and I love both. I will admit that the hummingbird house is my favorite - just something about the colors and details. Rose Cottage is fun to embellish with extra pink and chintz and frills, though. Anyway - the Wysocki house and the Rockwell houses were inspired by those artists, but they never said who actually designed the house or much about the furniture - I was always curious. They are well done houses and have interesting stairwells and doors and steps and porches - just very well detailed. Whoever project managed those mass produced houses and selected the furnishings did a great job. Who would the Mint go to for that job? I wonder.

Violet Schwenig is a "cottage artist" so maybe she had a hand in the initial cottage design. It is a heavy mostly resin structure.

Hi Kaylin,

I have been looking for the Franklin Mint Heartland Hollow Dollhouse for a while and I would like to know if you still have this one for sale?  I live in Maryland but I could drive to New Jersey, so that could avoid the hassle of shipping.  Crossing my fingers for a positive answer, thanks!

I do still have the house and furniture in storage. Tried to sell on eBay and Craigslist with no luck!

Mari, I have requested that someone remove your email address; this forum is NOT a secure site and all sorts of spammers and webbots are constantly gathering personal info.  We have a very nice personal messaging function, if you hover your cursor over a user's name you will get a drop down box and among other things there's an envelope icon with the word "message" that can be clicked on to send a message.  At the top right corner of every page next to your avatar there is another envelope icon that has a number on it when you receive a message.

I do still have this... I'm moving to Haines City in two weeks. Perhaps we can connect once I've moved if you're still interested.
