Linfield Dollhouse

Victorian Dollhouse

1:12 scale
.
  • Made from a Duracraft kit, this dollhouse has
    been upgraded to a much higher level by
    adding a large amount of solid wood trim,
    which in turn helps to reinforce the joints.
  • It is sturdily constructed using wood glue. The
    base is reinforced with a wood frame
    underneath  the entire house. The roof is
    reinforced with a one-inch ridge cap.
  • The hardwood floors and roof shingles have a
    shellac finish. The house is painted with a
    variety of latex paints, including the exterior
    walls, interior ceilings and all of the trim,
    inside and out.
