The Great Dollhouse Renovation Project!!

Thirty years ago, I built a 1.12 scale dollhouse for my daughter. Well, it was sort of for her....... But recently I decided to begin a renovation and of the dollhouse and redo it in a more modern style. at the same time I am building an old vintage kit but giving it a modern spin, and at the next phase, which is still in my head, is to build an ultra modern modular miniature living space. Say that 6 times quickly!   Click here to see the progress shots, demos and video walkthroughs!!
