I broke the rules by Millie
I guess I broke the rules of this group by using the "for Sale" term, it was never my intention to cause a problem, I only wanted to offer some of my 66 years worth of expertise to someone who wanted it. SPAM is something I never associated with myself until now, I have given many free hours of my...

buying lumber for an external chimney by patrick
If you don't have access to power tools . . . Instead of getting a large sheet that you would have to cut multiple times to come up with the correct widths, buy a few pcs. cut to the width and then you would only have to cut the lengths. The precut Midwest lumber Basswood strips range in price...

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...

Paint for doll-house building? by Cathy Weeks
Hi all, What's the difference between the paint sold in dollhouse craft stores, and the stuff sold at your average hardware store? Quantity? Viscosity? I don't have a convenient dollhouse store nearby and trying to look at paint colors over the computer is giving me a headache. I'd rather go in...

Kit or Homeade? by Jennie
So I am curious, purchased kit or homeade project (with plans or without?)? I have done both. I did a cheap Greenleaf kit, then built my current project without plans (tough). I also built my daughter a 'barbie' scale house that is too tall for her. It was fun and so much easier then the little...

dollhouse plan by Patrick
Herb, I must say that in my three years of learning by reading in this newsgroup . . . you have always been there with a tip or link. The other four that chime in are to be thanked also--good people! I have learned so much and don't know if anyone ever said thank you, so here is mine. Thank you....

Painting walls by Metis-Artist
I read somewhere that instead of trying to sand the wood to get perfectly smooth finish you can apply that sticky "mac tac" shelf lining and paint that. Has anyone tried this before? Any other suggestions? I really don't want to wallpaper. Tania

I need Roofing Advice by David
I was wondering how to stain these little pices of wood. I have tried dipping, and brushing, It takes forever to do a few, and need to do 1000. Also what kind of glue do I use to put them on. Can these be purchased already stained? Thanks. David

Marble Tile Revisited by Chuck
I haven't seen anything of Vicky since her initial thread on marble tile, so I'm wondering if she is still reading this group. If you are, I have a couple of questions: What are your construction skills/capabilities, as far as refining raw materials for use in your dollhouse? and What sort of...

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...

Hanging miniature wallpaper by Pat
Hi, One of the most frustrating tasks for me is wallpapering assembled dollhouses. The space is too small, my hands are too big, and I just can't see. I have documented a better way for me on my website. I am sure it is not original but it is a step by step...

Wallpapering directly to walls or to posterboard first? by Cathy Weeks
I had an idea about wallpapering - it's going to be difficult working in such enclosed spaces, (though the gable is done already - I did that portion prior to assembly - I KNEW I'd never be able to get inside there) and I was wondering how I was going to hide some of my (ahem) messy electrical tape...
