Dollhouse Build

welcome to the biggest project i've ever done... a project in which terms like "mitered", "gable", "facia" and "boston lap ridgecap" became a part of my vocabulary (at least in my head)


each piece had to be painted, sanded, and painted again


the shingles had to be dyed


the porch floor measured, marked, and painted


and the walls & floors glued and taped


i painted the black and white floors... this will be the kitchen & dining room





the shutters & windows painted and glued



the shingles glued on one-by-one


i didn't get pics of the railings, but they had to be assembled piece by piece as well


michael made a platform for it... with casters and handles 
so she can pull it out into the center of her room and play!



she really loves it!
