This is my little "Summer House" dollhouse. It oozes Cape Cod vintage style with the ease of summertime furnishings.
This dollhouse is made from scratch with a bump out section in the front for the entry.
This house is 11 3/4" wide x 18 3/4" long x 15 3/4" tall.
I had this design in my mind for a long time. The cozy front yard has a sand path that leads to the front door.
I love the roofs on this dollhouse. That top front window is such a charmer!
I decided the dormer should have the shingles. It's so traditional.
I made a screen door for this dollhouse instead of a front door. I didn't want a door to take up any space inside the house. I use real screen from the hardware store between two pieces of veneer.
I made this little bistro chair from Evangelione's wonderful tutorial and a wooden box.
The switches are in the chimney. One is for the fireplace and the other controls all the lights.
I made the entry armoire from bass wood veneer.
Downstairs I made 3 chandeliers and working fire all battery operated. I also made a sink, vintage style cooking range, upholstered chair, mantel, kitchen table, stool, laundry basket, ladder steps, baking scene, rug, artwork, plate drying rack, shelves, rolling pin, clay houses, bunting, curtains. I think that's everything!
I tried to make these curtains like they were blowing from the wind of the open window.
Here you can see the little lights in the logs.
I also put a little apron back there.
Non of the furniture or accessories are glued down.
