First time attempting a dollhouse, COVID boredom set the wheels in motion. Made the lap siding from strips of Purple Heart, the roof is strips of cedar. Cut strips of oak for the flooring on the inside. The two decks are cedar while the spindles are toothpicks. Building something this scale was very labor intensive but it was a lot of fun.

Beautiful! This will last a lifetime.

The fenestration makes it look surprised.

I didn’t take many pics but here are some more. I left the inside unfinished except for the floor. I figured part of having the dollhouse was for the girls to finish it the way they liked.

Take the girls to a wallpaper shop and have them get some wallpaper samples for the inside. Or have them draw their own.

Bead furniture is easy & fun to make for little ones too.

Great gift.
