I’ve been toiling away at my dollhouse and have made lots of progress. For those who haven’t been keeping up with my riveting Facebook posts, I messed up while putting the levels on the house. I glued on the upstairs floor and let it set overnight. Then in the morning I worked on the house some more and the house didn’t look right. There was supposed to be plenty of space for a balcony, and my house didn’t look like the one in the picture. I had glued on the wrong floor. Crap. I had to use a hammer to knock the wood loose from the glue, and it took a little bit of wood off of the tops of the walls, but none of the damage was a disaster. I glued the correct floor in place and it looked much better.
I even managed to build the access bay door yesterday. That involved putting on hinges, and it has been a long time since I installed hinges on anything. They were tiny hinges, too (and very tiny screws), but they’re on the door now. I think it helped that I had the TV on and I was listening to “Office Space”. That kept me focused and calm.
Here is what the house looks like at the moment:
