Hello Everyone, Complete Newbie here
By CJ Sumlin
I’m from Atlanta, GA and I’ve decided to start on a lifelong dream of mine of having a miniature dollhouse. I’m going to start small with the Orchid because I don’t know what i’m doing. When I see all the beautiful houses out here and custom furniture, accessories and stuff, I’m in awe. You guys are so talented! I’m not a crafts person so all of this looks extremely difficult and looks like it requires a special gift. Kudos to all of you. Wish me luck. I’m going to need it. If anyone would like to share any words of wisdom, I would greatly appreciate it. I really am starting with no knowledge at all.
Beacon Hill Dollhouse arrived!!!
Hello everyone! I’m new here. My Greenleaf Beacon Hill kit finally came in today! I’m a bit nervous as this is my first dollhouse build. Can anyone share some tips on what helped you? I heard the instructions are kind of difficult and hard to understand. I’ve been watching the YouTube videos and I can’t find one that is like a step by step. I already know some of the changes I’m going to make or other builders suggestions that I’m going to use. I’ve got most of the starter supplies: the glues, the clamps, painters tape, the ultimate cutter from hobby lobby, stains and some mini screwdrivers and a mini jewelry mallet/hammer. Any help throughout this would be so much appreciated! As A paramedic I work odd shifts so I plan to work on this on days off. I’d also like to possibly make my own kitchen counters. I’m in love with the farmhouse sink and I would like to incorporate that. I also do plan to run electricity. Thank you all!
Greetings From the Great White North!

Hi folks, I’m Deborah and I live in northern British Columbia. I completed one dollhouse with my mum (Dura-Craft Newburg) many years ago. My current plan, but we know how those can change, is to do a Greenleaf Westville set vaguely in the 1930s-1940s. After that I’m thinking of doing a Beacon Hill (anyone else watch Teen Wolf?). Although I also want to do a Glencroft and a log cabin (based on Laura Ingalls little houses, that’s blamed on a, uh, thanks to a member here although I cant remember who it was).
So little time, so many little houses!
Building a Beacon Hill
Hello, my name is David and I live in Kentucky. I purchased a Beacon Hill to build for my daughter after we went to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis and she fell in love with all of the dollhouse and dollhouse-related exhibits there. I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I am not particularly worried; it'll just take steady work, assuming the cats don't attack it. I'm on the forum looking for particular help with the instructions from time to time. Thanks for anyone that can help me!
