Beacon Hill Scraps--free to a good home
I have just completed a Beacon Hill (more or less). I wondered if anyone would like my box of scraps? Most of the sheets are intact (with the pieces punched out, of course). I never used the shutters, so all those pieces are there. I am willing to send the box and all the scrapwood to anyone who wants it.
Pennethorne Manor ~ Remake
After rehoming all my dollhouses (including Pennethorne Manor I - remember MiniMadWoman?) and being out of minis for awhile, I have once again caught the mini bug! I brought up all my miniatures from their tomb in the basement the other day and took inventory. O how I missed my precious pieces!
I am going to build a Beacon Hill from the dollhouse kit (which is due to arrive today) with a few modifications. I am adding a basement, extending the kitchen (which will be a dining room) and the bathroom, and adding a conservatory and possibly extending the boudoir. With help from dear hubby, we built the basement over the weekend and today I was playing with flooring.
I will be posting each step of the way here, but you can also follow along on my blog https://beaconhilldollhouse.blogspot.com
The basement from left to right . . . wine cellar, butler's pantry, kitchen, sewing room.
Kitchen flooring from a vinyl tile.

Hello, fellow forum members -
My first exposure to Greenleaf was the Harrison that my mother built for her grandchildren in the early 80s. It was well loved by our families and most of the neighbor children. The dollhouse traveled a bit and was given first to my niece and then my eldest daughter, whose five year old daughter is attached to it at the hip. When my newest grand daughter was born last year her mother said, "Great! Now it's OUR turn for the dollhouse!" To forestall the inevitable battle (ever tried to pry a five year old from her favorite toy on the planet?) I decided to make a new dollhouse for the other set of grandbabies. I joined the woodshop in my retirement community, found the best mentor on the planet, and dived in.
It's been twenty years since I tackled a doll house but it's been a joy.
I'll share pics soon - promise!
