Just thought I'd post a couple of photos of my "Harrison" dollhouse by Greenleaf:
http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/dollhouse-kits/harrison-d...

I've only gotten the shell partly done. I still have the roof (including shingles and chimney) and all the exterior details to do. Inside I need to do the electrical wiring and two staircases. I am at a standstill because of the electrical wiring. I need to do the wiring before adding the roof because there is a secret room that I can't get to very easily once the roof is on. I have also traced and labeled every single piece I have removed from the house kit so far. I want to use some kind of cardboard or card stock or something to use for the flooring and the walls that make them removable to change the house or to find the wiring, but I don't know how smart of an idea that really is. I definitely want to do that for the flooring, but still not sure about the walls. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Here is the shell that I've completed so far. It was actually completed years ago.

Here is the house sitting on the cheap work table that my dh built that has casters so I can turn the house as I am working on it:

Barb - Thanks for joining me in this adventure! This is my first house and my progress is starting again after this dolls' house sat for 20+ years! LOL! I will post pictures as I have progress to show. There may not be much progress right away as I am still working until the middle of July. After that I will be off for about a month which I hope to really kick it into gear working on this house! Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up
