An exciting new 1:16 scale project!

A friend at the dolls' house club very kindly suggested I look at two of her houses that she had bought recently from an auction house. I had mentioned that I was ready to dive in to another project.

I fell for this lovely house on sight so bought it immediately! It was built in the 1940s to plans from Hobbys from the 1930s, and needs much care. It it will be stunning when complete. Much more to follow on this. I'm starting with the exterior but am planning on keeping as many of the original features as possible so will be trying to touch up more than anything.

What an absolute beauty. I can't wait to get started!



  1. Very nice! I love these houses.

    In case you aren't aware, there is an online forum for vintage dolls house enthusiasts: with lots of photos and inspiration.

  2. Congratulations, it`s a wonderful house. Yes, I hope you keep many original features :)
