I loooooooooove dollhouses... always have.
I have had many in my lifetime... cardboard... metal... wood.
Both of my daughters have lovely wooden houses which they stored at my house when they 'left the nest'. Kristin's chalet-style house is stored on a shelf in the basement, but Wendy took hers with her when she moved to Arizona last month.
This house is Wendy's. I remodeled it several summers ago and it has lived on a step in the sun porch since then. An adorable family of 3 bears (from England) resided in the house. It was such fun decorating it for each of the seasons. But now it's gone!
So, I found a dollhouse kit online and it just arrived. I'm really pleased with the quality of the wood, etc. It's going to be a lot sturdier than most I looked at in Hobby Lobby. The finished house in the photo below is not the way mine will look when completed. I have a lot of 'tweaking' to do. It's small 24"x16" and 20"high (1" to 1' scale). Just right for the TV/guest room and sturdy enough for visiting little people to play with.
