Carriage House Custom Dollhouse

Carriage House is one of my French style little cottage with that flat topped roof and mismatched dormers. This one is the perfect backdrop for shabby chic furnishings.
 This house is 19 7/8" tall x 15" deep x 12 3/4" across. Interior downstairs space is 13" front to back x 11 1/2" side to side and  8 3/4" tall. Upstairs is 11" front to back x 11 1/2" sided to side x 8" tall.
 I Made the doorknob with a bead I covered with white nail polish. It looks like a porcelain knob.

As with most houses I have the battery and switch in the chimney.

 Doing that beam at the top was ridiculously challenging...LOL! But it looks great. So well worth the pain.

I try to list most of the materials I use on my 'resources' page. Also check out the tutorial page for info.  If you see anything missing and you want to know the answer- ask! I'll do my best to help you out.
Now that this project is done, I'm diving into another house. This one will be like the last house I did- In Tatters- except I'm going to try a full size upstairs.


  1. A Very Lovely little carriage house Caroline! :))

  2. Beautiful, love all your detail and your door knobs look fantastic. Jenn

  3. Absolutely beautiful, Caroline. I honestly don't know how you come up with so many different house ideas!! I love the roof layout, if you know what I mean. The mix-match of shapes is superb! Love your work :)
    All the best

  4. Maravillosa! Se ve sobria y especial, con el encanto inconfundible que sabes dar a tus casitas, felicidades! :)

  5. How can I say, "So cute," any other way. I love the gold chandelier and the white door knob, both original and minute, but such unique little details that make your work so special. Waiting for your next house!

  6. That chandelier is beautiful. I wish I had electrified my doll house which I built a very long time ago. I suppose I could still do it. It is a full 2 story with an attic, all open on the back of the house. Any suggestions as to how would be the easiest way to do it would be very much appreciated.

  7. Caroline,
    Evertime I look at your work I am in awe. I can't imagine how you do are so talented. I just love the house...just gorgeous!

  8. Como siempre, precioso. Las vigas de madera hacen muy bien. El exterior encantador

  9. I just discovered your site and I already love your delicate style. Your work is fresh and full of light, beautiful inspirations!

  10. What a beautiful job you did on that house! If it was full size I'd want to live in it!

  11. I love this house! It's a little different and interesting. The top is wonderful and so is the entrance. Great work, as always!
