So how you ask was this monstrosity born? Well ok I was going to trade someone for a store bought one, but I am actually glad that did not occur. The store bought ones are 4ft 11 inches wide and 6ft tall and would not have fit into their room. So it would have ended up living in an area I would not have preferred so building custom turned out for the best. Plus I am not really into the pointed roof dollhouse setup with an upper floor you can only half use and all that wasted space.. We designed and built ours to have a roof space like an old downtown building and put their little café up there! Rooftop café !
As you can see it truly is a monstrosity. I went with 4ft by 4ft and staggered the rooms because the huge doll bed I had already built them really needed some more space in the one room. I really just winged it putting this box together with two sheets of Birch plywood.
We stained the floors then painted all the walls. Love some nice real wood floors!
After some fun wallpapering floor trim and some little chair rails were added.
Once it was trimmed up added some furniture and shelves. Many many more details will be added and blogged as we go. We will be doing quite a bit of decorating in this little home.
Some little under cabinet lighting was perfect to brighten the place up. Make sure to check back as we add details!
