Photobucket has changed their terms of service and is no longer allowing 3rd party hosting. For this reason, my photos are no longer available for viewing. I am keeping the blog posts up so at least the text can be read.

I am currently in the process of migrating this blog onto Facebook. This will allow for the photos to be viewed again.

This process will take some time. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

The Harrison Dollhouse Day 01

Click on Newer Posts at the bottom of each page so you can see each day of the construction.

Don't forget to read all the How To Guides, listed to the left, for information on proper assembly and finishing of your dollhouse.

The Harrison By Greenleaf


I half way prepared the kit today. I am unfamiliar with this dollhouse so I need to go through the instructions and schematics first just to see what to expect during the build and how to prepare for it.

The interior and exterior trim sheets can be confusing because there are four sheets of them.

I made sure that every sheet was accounted for first. I labeled their numbers with a black marker and then proceeded to label each part, using the schematics, with pencil, while they are still on the sheets.

Be very careful with your labeling. This dollhouse has a lot of confusing parts. You might miss a vital part and end up throwing it away.

I removed the window sheet from the dollhouse parts and put it in a safe place.

Like I have said before. You can leave everything on the sheets and prepare as you go along with your assembly or you can label, remove and prepare everything before the assembly. Newbies might find that keeping each piece on their sheets until the assembly calls for them, might be less confusing and easier. Once you have assembled several of these dollhouses, you become familiar with certain parts that are very similar between models, like the chimneys for instance.

I also cut the dollhouse box with a box cutter. I am using the bottom part of the box as a turn table while I assemble and I cut out the pictures of the dollhouse from the top of the box. The dollhouse box picture can be very helpful during assembly.

i am a newbie to this and I'm working on this model, i am little confused to when i should put the window's in though, im at the part of the turret, any suggestions

The windows should be put in after the dollhouse is finished, inside and out. You do not want to put in your windows while the dollhouse is unassembled. You will not be able to cut your wallpaper cleanly around them or apply stucco with a nice clean look. You run the risk of damaging the acetate panes as well. Remember to finish all of the window trim before installation.
