    That is beautiful! So detailed too. She will love it.

    How long before you start on a hope chest. That is an old tradition we use to have.

    And here I thought I'd have to wait for you to finish it. I was fascinated when I saw the wallpaper, then the cased openings. And carpet?

    How the heck long did that take you to build? That kind of detail is not something that is done quickly.

    Awesome man,
    That is lot of detail work.

    Great patience and a great job.

    My dad built one similar to that many years ago, (God rest his soul) , it took him a year, it was a 2 story,

    My oldest Daughter , now 50 yrs old , still has it.


    Lots of memories in those dollhouses built by grampa's.

    I wish I had pics of all the Wall hangings, tables, Jewelry boxes that I made for my Grands.:heart:



    Jim

    Wonderful, not sure if I could spend that much time on it.
    The siding detail would drive me up the wall, it would take months to finish.
    It seems to me, half of your skill is in photography.
    Good job.

    What a beautiful dollhouse and treasure for your granddaughter.
    Hope granddaughter's mother realizes the care and love that was taken to make such a wonderful gift.

    I just think it's stunning. I'd love a kitchen such as that little home has.
