Let's Build A Dollhouse


me eh?

My name is Jennifer.
Dollhouses and Miniatures are my passion.
I love my dollhouse, and wish that everyone who wants one could have one.
I have done a lot of renovations on my real house over the years, and not having a table saw at home, I had a lot of wood cut at Home Depot. One day it occured to me that I could also get a dollhouse cut out at Home Depot, so that is what I did.
I built this dollhouse by myself during the Winter of 2003/04.
The cost was just over $100 CAN.

You don't need a lot of tools to build a dollhouse. All of this dollhouse, excluding the interior walls, was cut out of a single sheet of 4 foot x 8 foot plywood. The whole thing was cut out at the Home Depot.

I began by drawing a cutting plan. I used my own dollhouse as a guide, I had taken the measurements for that original house from house plans of a real house we had owned.

Drawing each piece of the dollhouse for a cutting plan took a lot of thinking.I built the dollhouse over and over again in my head to assure that the measurements are correct. I'm somewhat obssessive which is both an asset and a weakness, in this case it was a big help.
Figuring out how to fit each piece of the dollhouse onto a 4'x8' sheet of plywood was challenging.I couldn't have done it without the help of Adobe Photoshop

Once I had the cutting plan completed, I walked over to my local Home Depot with a grocery cart, purchased a sheet of plywood and presented the cutting plan to the nice man who cuts things out on Home Depot's big beautiful saw.
The cutting plan worked well.

Since I had spent so much time creating this dollhouse plan, I figured I might as well share it. As I worked on the dollhouse I took photographs and typed up the directions.Then created this web site 'Let's Build a Dollhouse'
