*** EMERSON ROW***

18 posts in this topic

I got it!! I got it!! Logged on to my e-mail this morning (I set up a "search" for Emerson Row on eBay) AND THERE IT WAS!!! ONE FOR A "BUY IT NOW!!!"

So I DID!! :banana::cheer::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::banana:

I'm not TOO excited or anything. My husband groaned..."Oh no! Not ANOTHER house!!" But too bad, so sad, I GOT IT!! :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

Anyway...my heart will stop leaping outta my chest one of these days...maybe.. :)

Congrats! Glad you got it!! (I'm suprised it lasted so long, I posted about it at about midnite,lol--it took major restraint not to snatch it up...I figured if I bought another house before I finished the BH, rosedale or Willowcrest, there might be trouble,lol)

And I remember not too long ago you said one house was enough....

Is this going to be the bookstore then? If not, then what? Any ideas yet? It would make a great house of ill repute...

No, I haven't decided what he'll be just yet.... I'll have to sit and stare at it for awhile, and examine the pics and all. Certainly books will be in there somewhere....and cats....but I don't know yet how it'll all come together. But it is such a lovely house, I know whatever I do in my little way will be just fine. But now it's back to reality....gotta do some ironing this afternoon. Ugh.

People still iron? I don't even know where my iron is. Last time I used it was to put the end caps on a new countertop. I do need to go clean bird cages though...

,,,,,so....were those two 24-hour days, or??? :wave: I dunno..looks a lot more complicated than that!! I might have gotten Brimble's shell together in 2 days...but Emerson Row?? And did you eat, and go potty, and do all that normal stuff??? :)

I am going to be picking it up at the end of the month when I go to the Chicago dollhouse shows...along with another house....at this rate, I'd better rent a U-Haul! :)

When you start putting the shell together, follow Jenny`s instructions and not the real instuctions when it comes to putting the walls and floors in

The first floor section has to slide thru notches in the front to make the top tier of the outside stairs and it is a witch to get in if you follow the instructions. Jenny did it a different way and had no problems.

it really was very simple! its nice because the 2 walls are flat, so its almost like putting a box together. The first day i probably spent about 3-4 hours gluing the basic shell together, then over night i let it dry and put the front pieces on. then the next day the roof.. .so i spent about an average of 4 hours a day in a 3 day period i think.

Thanks Heidi! ya putting the walls in the order i did was much easier for me, there was alot less need for cursing or using a hammer :cheer:
