I inherited this home from Brady's late Grandmother, Darlene. OK, so maybe the house is only 1-10th the size of a real house. That doesn't mean I can't be just as excited as if I were to ACTUALLY be building my dream home. And let's face it, I would kill to have a really awesome modernized Victorian. OK, back on track.. A while back I mentioned to my mother-in-law, Kari, that I was digging the new trend that was happening in the home blogosphere, building and finishing doll houses just as you would your dream home..
The construction alone ought to get me through the winter and then some. With about 10 hours of work, all I have accomplished is assembling the windows and about half the trim for the exterior. With the directions clearly being for experienced doll house builders, this might be more of a project than I had originally imagined. It truly is like building a real house. You have to sand, paint and assemble each and every piece down to the last rafter in the attic. You even have to shingle and side the house. Brady can't quite figure out why I would want to shingle a doll house, piece by piece, yet I HATE putting siding on our house. This would be a better project to get into once our REAL house is complete, but I just don't care. Brady can put siding on our house while I side the doll house...let's see who finishes first. :)
