Wonderful roof tiles and slates, convincing thatching, realistic brickwork, weatherboarding, paving, and other stylish decorations transform a dollhouse into something truly personal and unique. And, here are ingenious do-it-yourself finishes that enable you to add those details without spending a fortune. Kits and plain ready-made homes then become inexpensive "blanks" that can easily become authentic reproductions of a period manor, farmhouse, or corner shop -- even a replica of your very own dwelling! Inside these pages, filled with inventive advice and instruction, you'll find out about engraving basics, suitable materials, and building miniature "heirlooms." Select from brilliant ideas for fireplaces, wallpapering, paneling, doors and hinges, flooring, stairways, wall finishes, fencing, topiary, and gates.

This book is more a viewing book to get ideas. The actual instructions are not the selling point for this book although there are some. This is for the more advanced Dolls House creator definitely not a childrens book. Read full review
