I was offered a 1976 woodline house to use for my class today. Does anyone know anything about the company or the houses? Any pictures? I did find a sketch to line and a different built house, but can't tell whay kind od construction it is or what comes with a kit. Nothing on Ebay either.

There is one house list in the 1978 "the miniatures catalog", the model is "Grandma's House" and the style is a Midwestern farmhouse with wrap-around porch. Here is the description on construction: "All parts are precut; house can be assembled using only white glue. Floors , roofs, and inside walls are hardboard; the rest is pine. Outside walls have clapboard siding pattern. 9" ceilings." Seems middling.

The 1980 catalog has more of their designs, some of them nicely up scale. They had a San Franciscan that was nice. Prices and quality of materials seems to fall somewhere between the Greenleaf/Duracraft and the Real Good Toys designs of the same time.
Lately I'm enjoying sharing mini project details on Facebook. If you do FB, stop in at MaineYankee's Miniatures Workshop and say hello! I'd be happy to "Like" your mini page on FB, too, so be sure to post a link to it on the Wall.
