Well it took me nearly a year, but I finally started working on my 4 story doll house. I had gotten it on Craigs list and the family that made it did a wonderful job, it's built out of heavy plywood and is a tank. At first I was going to add on to it because I was afraid I would fill it up to fast and not have any rooms left to play in. But houses are multiplying around here and now I have three houses to finish so that fear is no longer there.
Plus, I recently inherited some really pretty miniatures for the yard so I decided instead to build up the gardens. So on the side of the house where there was a window, I got a framed glass door that will lead out to some stairs down onto a patio.
One of the reasons I had hesitated so on working on the house was a fear that I would mess it up when I cut into it because it. But I got out my saw and decided to go for it. After all if I messed it up, I could just fix it, right?
And look I did it!!!! I have to admit that I was proud of myself. The door actually fit properly in the hole I cut! I did some damage to the siding but I'll deal with that little detail later.
Next step, making stairs and doing some shopping for some lattice and porch railing.
