Using trim in corners - how to make it look right with base and crown moulding? by Cathy Weeks
I'm getting ready to place an order for building components for the small "practice" dollhouse I'm building. I want to use moulding along the floor and ceiling, and vertically in the corners. But where the corner molding joins the baseboard and crown moulding, I think it will look funny. How do...

Adding to the electrical after the fact? by Cathy Weeks
Ok, I just got the electrical starter kit (now if only the rest of the supplies would arrive, then I can get started!). I know I have to plan for all outlets and light fixtures now, and that's no problem. But, the kit doesn't come with the larger brads for the outlets, nor does it come with...

Started the cottage by Cathy Weeks
Just wanted to share. I primed and painted the body of the house tonight. Kind of a pain to do with my wrist in a cast, but definitely doable. The house walls are "Hazy Green" and the gable I mixed my own color by adding white to it, to make a pale green. I have a very dark green, but I didn't...

Covering the edges of rooms? by Cathy Weeks
One thing I don't like, is when you look into the rooms of the dollhouse, at the edges of the room dividers and floors is seeing the layers, of paint, wallpaper, flooring etc. On some pictures I've seen, it's painted white, which looks nice. But I was wondering if anyone ever put moulding along...

Another wiring, flooring, and roofing question by Cathy Weeks
Right now the plan is to do my flooring on cardstock or something like that, and to run the tape for the first floor ceiling fixtures on the second floor, then cover it with the flooring which will be fixed down in a semi-permanant method. I got to thinking...instead of running the wiring on the...

Instructions for Artply Franklin dollhouse by Debbie G
I am missing one small corner of the instructions. I believe the model is about 15 years old - my mother-in-law bought it and never assembled it before her death. One small corner of the instruction sheet torn off, and rather than guess about the instructions I thought it best to see if anyone...

Mistakes already! How to fix? by Cathy Weeks
Sigh... the fact that I've already built on dollhouse doesn't count for much it seems, especially when I built it 12 years ago because this very simple RGT Victorian Jr already has mistakes. I primed the housebody and painted the exterior, but didn't pay enough attention to the instructions where...

sconces and coach lamps by Cathy Weeks
Ok... I need to run the wiring tape, and I have no fixtures to test with. I'll get the fixtures in April. Now, here are my problems: 1. How do I attach exterior coach lamps? I know that I'll run the tape around the top of the front door, on the inside. I also know that I'll have to drill...

Hiding the junction splice? by Cathy Weeks
Ok, I had an idea that I'd like to bounce off you more experienced people... The cir-kit instruction booklet has people put the junction splice on the side of the house on the siding, and I find that to be unattractive. I want to hide the junction splice under the house instead: On the ground...

1/8 inch brads with 1/8 inch plywood? by Cathy Weeks
My current project has 3/8" MDF walls, and I got to thinking about my next project. I'm thinking about a Greenleaf cottage next, and wouldn't wiring prove a problem? If you use the brads (or the eyelets) - which are 1/8" long, that's the same as the thickness of the walls. What's to prevent the...

What tools to use when drilling pilot holes for eyelets? by Cathy Weeks
I bought Cir-Kit's mini drill ($6) and am really glad I did. With an MDF house, trying to use the pilot hole punch that came with the wiring kit would be impossible, and even putting the drill bit in the punch didn't work - I couldn't get the chuck tightened enough, even with pliers, and trying to...

Mini Cole Jaws by Chuck
I just bought a set of mini cole jaws for my SuperNova, and it came with a set of screws for mounting on the jaw slides that are twice as long as are needed. Anyone know what they are for? They're listed in the manual but I can't see any use for them. TIA -- Chuck *#:^)

Wow...it worked! (Electrical) by Cathy Weeks
I've been putting in the tape wire, and installing the eyelets. I installed the junction splice on the underside of the house (in space created by the "foundations") I'll route out a "mouse hole" for the cord to escape. But I got out the tester, and ALL splices worked. I guess I expected it to...
