I've been reading this thread the over the last two days and got a little over half way through. You guys are really creative.

Anyway, I was at Hobby Lobby today and they (mine at least) had one of the greenleaf dollhouses for $30. They also have a ton of miniature doll house items. A little sewing machine, a package of books, a tiny tea set, etc. They also had flooring and shingles, and stain for the shingles, and lighting, and hinges etc. A ton of stuff. So if any of you have a Hobby Lobby nearby, you might want to check it out. If nothing else, it could give you some ideas.

I think the templates posted in the original post are going to work out beautifully.  Katara hasn't posted a progress photo in a while but that last one looked great.  And foam board can be purchased at Michaels and at Dollarama for $1.25 each.  So this route is a big money saver.

I bought the adhesives last night!  I'll see if I can get the template printed and foam board cut.  I'm really excited about this project.

I'm looking to get hold of the creatology house.. the "dollhouse with veranda" one. But I'm in the UK! Would someone be willing to buy one and ship it to me? If so, how much including shipping would this be?

I'd be looking to pay for it around the 23rd of this month..

Also, I understand you build it yourself? What extras would I need for this like adhesives etc? I'm looking to create the house from UP! for my wedding Smiley Would poster paints work?

I'd really appreciate it Smiley Thanks!

I sent you a pm-  The pieces punch out (and result in sore thumbs, but it's worth it) and then fit together.  They will fit together without adhesives but for the sake of sturdyness and durabiltiy, it's good to use glue before you are completely done with it. I've painted mine with acrylics, or stained the wood, with no problem.

For everyone seaching to no avail in their local Michael's.... I went into a shop last week and they said they are seasonal items and should be arriving in the next few weeks. How dollhouses are seasonal I really don't understand but it might be worth checking back in a month or so to see if they are in stock Smiley

Maybe the 'dollhouse season' only lasts a few days Wink I'm thinking of just ordering a crap load.
