1st Picture of My Dollhouse!

Well here is your first look at my dollhouse.  Charlene was over today and was kind enough to put up with my chananigans to get a picture of the house that I would actually like! As you can see, I got the walls, floors, foundation and roof on and stuck the windows and door in just so it would look pretty for the picture! It is pretty, isn't it?  My next step is to sink the nails, putty the nail holes, sand and then paint!  Once that is done, I'll have to choose between putting on the porch, working on the inside a little, or the long and tedious job of staining and then putting all the wood shingles on the roof, one at a time! Now remember everything including the shingles are in a 1:12 scale. So that is lots and lots of shingles!

I have a couple of ideas for the colors to use on the outside of the house but if anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear what you think! I hope to add a garage perhaps with a room over it. I am having fun!

you are to cute. A garage? With a room over it? Are you gonna rent it out to a student, too? LOL.
Enjoy!

love your dollhouse. I always wanted one, but my parents could not afford it. Have a great one in my classroom, but may need to get me a "big girl" dollhouse like you did! Can't wait to see how it comes together.

I am just tickled you are building a doll house. How fun! I think you should paint it to match your own house. Maybe that's boring, but I have a neighbor down the street with a shed in the front of their house and it looks identical to their real house only mini. I just love it every time I drive by.
