But one month ago, I wanted to do something related to dollhouses. I didn't know what exactly. So, I searched the internet to make up my mind, to get inspired, to find something new. So, I browsed the sides and found some great dollhouse kits made in USA. So, I finally decided to buy one of them and start building a new house.
I've brought the kit of the Greenleaf Beacon Hill Dollhouse.
This is the dollhouse displayed on the Greenleaf website and shop.
Here I start building. It starts with the base where some trim needs to be glued to its bottom side. I added some smaller wooden pieces because the trim contact to the base was too small to be strong enough to stay in place.
I've assembled the main part without gluing it to check how it works. My cat - almost blind, he is 15 years old - was so curious he was always there helping me.
Then I started gluing.
These windows looked much better. The decision was done.
Since I've seen the pictures of the Beacon Hill online I hated the included stair case. I could not stand the style and the way the wood which it is made off looked. It wasn't detailed enough ... just not my aesthetics. So, I will take the spiral stairs which I wanted to use in my old dollhouse, too.
Here are the bay windows and the mansard roof covered.
Second floor left side from behind will be the bathroom. Also with leftovers from my first house.
This window is a new window that I've brought to fit the other old windows. It should replace the balcony door. It will be a balcony door, but I have to change it. I'll show you the process another day because I haven't done it jet.
Another change that I have done is the actual balcony. Since I want to have a stone house I think a wooden balcony won't fit and the style of the balcony isn't right to turn it into a stone looking one. So, I walked the streets and looked at Victorian time balconies and started to create a balcony out of scrap wood from the dollhouse kit. There's a gap between the window (future door) and the balcony. I want to install some stairs there.
Thank you for being here with me and see you next time soon!
