This is my ex-stepmothers childhood dollhouse, as a 40th birthday present I redesigned the exterior and started the interior.
Also this being my first dollhouse I had a great time rebuildinging it and adding my own touches.

I'm so sorry you weren't able to finish it. It was turning out beautifully. Do you have another kit in mind to work on? Or have you already started one?

I have a Harrison that I got off CL. It is partially built & with hot glue, so one of these days I am gong to take it apart & redo it. Thanks for the different look - I have not been sure I wanted to do Tudor style. It is a magnificent house, isn't it?

It was a fun project to start on. It was basically a blank slate. I do have another kit but I haven't started it, don't really have the space or the time at the monent but I'm alway getting idea's and seeing insperations for it. So for now beacon hill will just have to stay in it's box under my bed. I can't wait to start on it. I've already come up with a redesign for it.

I love how you've altered the house, puts me in mind of the President McKinly home in OH.
