Pretty big change in plans for the dollhouse this week. As I mentioned, I purchased a new kit that I was planning to use as an addition to the old house. But for some reason, when it comes to dollhouses, building the actual structure itself sucks all the fun right out of it for me. I have zero interest in that part. I was struggling to get my mystery pieces to fit together and just not looking forward to the whole project.
So, I’ve abandoned the addition for now. And in keeping with the “Urban” title I have going on, I had a big new idea for my old dollhouse. I’m starting by gutting it.
I was really surprised at how little structural support the center walls and stairs provided. I had pillars already in place when I demolished the walls, but the house seemed just fine. The pillars will still go in so there isn’t unnecessary stress on the structure, but it’s a relief to know how sound the house is.
It’s looking a whole lot different than last year and I’m really excited about that.
The first floor stairs will be going back in, just in a different location and the second floor stairs will be replaced with the spiral set from the other dollhouse kit.
The debate today has been whether or not to tell you about my plans yet. I think I’ll save it as a surprise for now. Hope it will turn out as awesome as it is in my head!
