hello fellow jocks…this is another toy in my journey of toys this year, this is a doll house that is for a good friend in utah. the walls are made from oak and are all glued and nailed, ive tried to detail this house with some neat details, the lower flooring is 1/8 inch antique heart pine and the top floor is 1/8 cedar…i made a fireplace that is trimmed in walnut and in the center red cedar…with a cedar mantle, there is also a fire painted into the fire box…the bottom flooring is also trimmed in has been a really fun project and i hope the little girl this goes to will enjoy it for many years….this has been a nice break from the usual larger projects that ive done and kinda nice playing santa.ive also made a table and four chairs for this, and im not done making the rest of the furniture..there will be a sink and frig with a stove for downstairs and a bed and such for the upper room…..thanks for taking time to look …..i hope you all are making the saw dust fly… going to be making these doll houses for sale in a few months…so if you know of any one who would like one…i will take orders…..grizzman.

Really neat doll house Grizzman!

I have been thinking about making the little one next door one of these- thanks for the ideas!
About how big is the size, overall?

What’s the flashing on the roof?

This is so creative, so well put together, and such a cool gift.

One of the things I like most about your toys are that they are old fashioned fun. No video game component or other animation. This is just old fashioned play for kids today. I often think that this is how we developed our own ability to be creative. We had to plan, learn, think and play for ourselves. Three cheers for this kind of toy.

Great Job, Grizz!! I always wanted to make one of those, even started one, but ran out of wood and never got back to it…It wouldn’t have been as nice as this one though!!

I want one… and the furniture !!! TOO COOL.
(I agree Ellen—even the children’s books today have the sounds attached so they don’t even have to imagine a “moo”... sigh.

thankyou for the great comments..when i grew up we had no computer things to entertain…and im very thankful for it…it has its poupous and is a god thing in a lot od applications….but these kind of toys invoke us to use our imagination, which is the creativeness in us…...a dog sledd is next…it will have some new challenges…thanks for looking folks…...oh and lew i believe the dimensions are 14 inches wide and 11 inches deep..its about 16 inches tall…and thats to the top of the second room..not including the roof system.
