State of Grace Cottage Custom Dollhouse

 State of Grace Cottage is a 1/12 scale dollhouse made by hand and from scratch. No kits just my drawings onto wood and cut out. 

This house is measures 16 3/4" tall x 12" across x 16" deep. The interior space is 13 3/4" tall x 11" across x 13 5/8" deep. 
This was originally a screened door. But I glued a piece of transparent plastic in its place. 

The switches and batteries for the 2 lights and the fireplace are hidden in the chimney.

The floors and the mantel wall are pickled wood. While the rest of the house is aged white plaster.

State of Grace Cottage is available in my Etsy shop:

Chateau Dans Les Nuages Custom 1/12 Dollhouse

 Chateau Dans Les Nuages (Castle in the clouds) dollhouse is a bigger dollhouse. I haven't made one this size for my shop in such a long time. But since Christmas is coming I thought I'd make a special house.

This dollhouse is 1/12 scale. It's about 23" across the front x 19" deep x 23" tall.
The exterior is aged white plaster with lots of embellishments.  And the vines and flowers all come Hobby Lobby. 
I thought these doors made the perfect French entry. The entry is lighted.
The decorations make this the most romantic chateau!

On the roof are two chimneys. Inside each chimney is 2 switches and 2 batteries to control the lights and fireplaces.
No details were spared on this one -  corner stones, stone foundation, picture holdings on each side of the entry.

The sides of the house are also embellished. 

Inside there are 8 lights and 2 fireplaces. 
This living room has 1 of the fireplaces. It's 18"front to back x 13 1/4" side to side and 8 3/4" tall.
The floors are white washed throughout the house for a light bright feel they can accommodate any style.
The interior is full of embellishments. 

The chandeliers are all handmade.

This room is smaller than the living. I think it would be a great kitchen. It's 18" front to back x 8 1/2" side to side x 8 3/4" tall.

Upstairs is separated in 3 sections. This room has a fireplace. It would make a great bedroom. But I could also see a bathtub in front of that fireplace.

There is a working door to get into the rooms upstairs. This room is 8 1/2" side to side x 18" front to back x 9" tall.

This is the hallway/stair landing. 
The hallway is 6" side to side x 18" front to back x 9" tall.
This is the door to the fireplace bedroom. 
And this is the second room upstairs.  This room is 7 1/4" side to side x 18" front to back x 9" tall.
