I was wondering if Greenleaf has a Southern Plantation kit. I saw one on Esty but it is in Australia and they only have 1 left. I'm interested in having it be my next project as I love the look of it BUT I just started my very 1st project and I'm nowhere near ready to get another one. Thanks
DOWNLOAD: Greenleaf Fairfield: Preplanning Colors / Free Photoshop File
I have taken the liberty of sharing my Layered PSD Photoshop file of the Greenleaf Fairfield Dollhouse. I created this file to help my wife choose the colors that she wanted for the outside of the house.
Photoshop File: You can download the Photoshop file at: http://www.caddisart.com/fairfield?utm_source=LinkToCAIFairfield&utm_medium=LinkToCAIFairfield&utm_campaign=LinkToCAIFairfield
You can see the :30 video of me making this file at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xa7tgUjgUo0
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and let me know or reach me on the download page.
PS - this page wouldn't let me upload the 157K cover photo of the project even though it says I can upload a 500K image. Something broken here.
3 Dollhouses For Sale: Arrow Kit 750 Royal Dream / Greenleaf Fairfield 8015 / Dura Craft Heritage HR560
Hope I am obeying the rules.
I am "New" here, but my eBay record is visible, and I can point to when I bought and sold high end cinema cameras and gear.
I am happy to provide additional photos or details if requested.
(1) Arrow Kit 750 Royal Dream Kit in original box, Appears complete, I counted the main wood sheets. I am not sure if any shingles or other loose pieces. Box is old masking tape nightmare, but it is there. (2) Kit: Dura Craft Heritage HR 560
Kit in original box. Perhaps 25% of kit is missing.
My wife and I did an inventory of the pieces. I have some of the instruction manual pages we made notes on, but need to look for a couple pages.
(3) BUILT: Greenleaf Fairfield 8015
Fully assembled, painted, flooring. But needs a bit of care. Some shingles are missing, Some panels sem loose. Flooring, other decorator items showing their age.
Kit-bashing a Tab-and-Slot house?
FurMama's post here reminded me that I have two Greenleaf kits (somewhere! I haven't seen them in months!) that I had once intended to bash. Yeah, I know, another project I'll probably never get to. I didn't want to hijack her thread with my own project and questions so I'll start anew. The kits are this one:
That brought up the question of just how hard is it to kit-bash a tab-and-slot house? Can you reverse them by flipping over the pieces? I know it's more involved than that but I think you get what I'm asking.
I've never built a tab-and-slot house before. I owned one but I didn't build it. Way back in the day when Michael's stopped carrying Greenleaf products, I got a smokin' deal on their already-built Beacon Hill display model. What a mistake that was! I eventually gave up on that mess and set it out on the curb with a "Free to Good Home" sign. Mind you, that is in NO WAY slamming Greenleaf. Trying to fix up that shoddily constructed hot-glue-gunned-POS was a nightmare I never should have attempted. ANYWHO . . .
I finally managed to find my silly mock-up of what I'd intended to do with my two kits. You're all the experts on this, can it be done?
Travel Trailer Screen Door
Next on the list was the screen door. I wasn't going to have one but every photo I came across showed one. Okay. The challenge came to finding scale screen material. Brae had shared what she used for her screen door but I could not find it locally. I hunted everywhere. Luckily at Michaels the associate showed me Tulle. It looked good to me! I made two frames and sandwiched the Tulle between them. Then painted aluminum. It didn't turn out half bad.
