Half Scale Custom Dollhouse: La Maison de Campagne

I don't do many half scale(1/24) dollhouses. But a commission request came in from Don to turn La Maison de Campagne into a smaller version and I decided to give it a go!
Something I like to do is get purchased elements to keep me in scale. For this project it was the staircase and door frame. This is a great tip for any scale. Buy a door or a window. Just something that will remind you of the scale you should keep while building your custom house.
 This dollhouse came out to 9 1/2" across x 11 1/2" tall x 10" deep.

I chose to put the battery and switches under the house since the chimneys are so small.





 For this project, I used Pico LED lights and fire kits I got here:  https://www.modeltrainsoftware.com/fire-led.html

These Pico lights are very good. It's remarkable how much light comes out of something so tiny!



Thanks for coming over!
