Hey everybody.  I am brand new to doll house making.  Let me explain a little how I wound up here.  I am a cross stitch fan and one day while looking for new cross stitch kits to buy, a DIY Mini doll house room kit popped up in my search list.  So I bought one and then 2 and 3 and so on.  I am still working on my first one and really enjoy it.  It is a bit difficult for me to figure out how to handle such tiny pieces but I am getting there after buying tons of different glues, tweezers, etc., to help me in my process.

So, I joined here to see if there were tips and tricks for working with such small items, but really do not see anything here about that, but see tons of info on regular size doll houses.  So this got me thinking...instead of buying 12 different room kits, why not buy a regular doll house kit.

So, I am hoping to find information on a kit maybe I could buy, a 1st doll house kit, regular size, that includes all the furniture and what not you need to complete the kit, to practice on, and once I am comfortable working with these small items, I might branch out into furnishing and what not in my own style.

So, does anybody know of a doll house kit (regular size) that comes with the furniture, curtains, paint maybe, siding, etc.?

At the top left hand side of the page under the Greenleaf logo there is a row of buttons; the one on the right hand end is "shop".  Press it and you will go to the Greenleaf store where you can buy kits for houses and furniture, siding, shingles, flooring and what not; thrift stores are great sources for silk and cotton fabrics for making curtains and bedding and there are online tutorials for making rugs, some linked here:  http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=forums&module=forums&controller=topic&id=1290 and books, some discussed here:  http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=forums&module=forums&controller=topic&id=21471.

Welcome! You're not going to find a dollhouse kit that includes everything. Sometimes people sell kits on eBay or Craigslist that include all the supplies they bought intending to build it, and then they never got around to it. So you could look around for stuff like that, but you're really better off finding a house style that you like, buy that kit, and then ask for advice here about what supplies you'll need.
