I built this dollhouse from a kit nearly 9 years ago. We recently moved it to our basement and some of it was damaged because we had to force it through the doorway, and we had to cut some of it off. For some odd reason I didn't think to save the piece we cut off.
All the art work in this dollhouse are miniaturized photos of actual paintings by artist Diann Izzie. All the photos of people are from my family.
I put up a fence all around my dollhouse because my cats were playing in it. As it happened, the fence didn't help.
First instruction in the kit: 1. Don't Panic. 2. Second stated the measurements of the dollhouse and to make sure it would fit through the doorway. The size of this dollhouse forced me to leave it in my dining room for 8 years. When we finished our basement, I wasted no time moving it, although it was damaged in the process.
If I ever built another dollhouse it would have to have pre-cut pieces and not the punched out die-cut in the Garfield. I wish I had known better then because I don't see myself investing another 1/2 year of my life hanging around indoors, building a dollhouse!
I've made many purchases for my dollhouse from Miniatures.com I've always been happy with their service and merchandise.
I'm a software engineer and the rest of the time, I'm a poet, writer, volunteer, blogger, and playing on my iPhone. I currently have nearly 700 poems. I enjoy outdoor activities like inline skating, biking, skiing (especially cross country) and hiking.
I have 4 cats all of them are litter mates - found homeless, feral around 5 weeks old by a volunteer at a cat shelter.
