I purchased this dollhouse several years (I'm not saying how many) ago and finally decided to put it together. After all how hard could it be? Well putting it together was not hard, time consuming but not hard. As with any project however, there is learning curve. I dove in with both feet as usual, collecting books, etc.; I also discovered a huge resource in Ebay.
I really had no idea the magnitude of the world of miniatures. It is so much more than little house that kids play with - a lot of them are not for playing with at all.
Once I got into it I was hooked - it can be all consuming and don't get me started on the money! Anyway I didn't take pictures of the unassembled house, but here are some "unfinished" pictures. Along the road to completion.
