Amazing project. I did not buy this shell because I could not imagine anything being constructed in it. Not usually a problem. So glad you did not have that problem!

Comment from: brae [Member]
Thank you! :>> Yes, the cutter has a deeper outer ring (it shows in the fourth picture above), so the clay would have to be thick enough to even reach the interior cut pattern before it would cut. Much too thick for mini tiles.

Thank you for the message! I am planning to build this house one day, so I don't want to break up the kit I have or sell it. If you have the instructions, they should indicate the measurements of the pieces you are missing. I have mine packed away right now so I don't have it easily accessible. You could get wood cut that would replace the parts you are missing.

Comment from: brae [Member]
Thank you for your questions. I'm sorry, I'm not sure how to do what you're asking. I'm not an expert on miniature electrics and do very simple wiring with ready-made products. I also have not used tape wire in any of my builds.

I was given this kit by my Mom before she passed. She started but never got finished. I have decided to finish it. The kit is missing all of the foundation and floor pieces. Are you still planning on using this kit? If not would you be willing to sell the whole kit or maybe just the parts I'm missing? Thanks, Tammie

Hi! beautiful work ! i am 58 and i was taking some times to remember the models i built when i was 12, and guest what? I suddenly remember that i did an old ford truck but didn't remember exactly the name and company who built the kit....and VOILA ! i found it right here ! 45 years ago i built this kit.....but not as well as yours but i did my best at 12 years old. Thanks for these beautiful memories.

Hi, I just came across this post. Are you still out there? I actually have this dollhouse completed. It was a wonderful kit to build from, easily customizable. I worked in a craft store back in the late 70s. If I recall the kit originally sold for over $300. I'm sure I'm too late to help at this point but I was wondering if you ever were able to complete yours? Would be interesting to see how you finished yours off compared to what I did with mine. Thinking about selling mine. I really don't have any good place to display it any longer. It is a shame, it really is a beautiful house.

Is the cutter too deep to use the normal way with the thinkness you wanted for the tiles? As always, love your work and the care you take in sharing the details of it with us!
