For those interested, this is the exterior of the dollhouse. The model is the San Franciscan by Dura-Craft, Inc. Have to laugh because the box says "Mansions in Minutes." That is an impossibility considering the complexity of the construction process. My husband painstakingly built this, including the double hung windows, and shake shingled the turret. I shake shingled the roof. What a job! We even created bricks with a special mixture and a plastic form. You can see a small bit of the brickwork at the bottom left in the photo.
I've added a couple more interior shots.
The first interior shot is of the Duncan Phyfe library table I made. A miniature hurricane lamp, a stack of prints and a miniature collection of Civil War era CDVs I made from my actual CDV collection are scattered atop the table. The open drawer shows a miniaturized index card recipe.
The second interior shot is the desk. I moved it under the chandelier. I just placed a gem sized Civil War era tintype in the letter holder/inkwell. I'll be affixing it to the wall unless I use a small tabletop easel and place it on the fireplace mantel. I made the books from pdf files I purchased online.
