Please forward this error screen to 198. You can check out the plans for the smaller dollhouse here. I built a house and painted free dollhouse plans pdf this past week. But it is a HUGE dollhouse.
For years, Grace has been asking us for a dollhouse for her American Girl or 18″ dolls, but I’ve resisted, knowing how big these dollhouses have to be for Kit Kitridge and Ruthie to fit inside. But Grace has been begging and begging and leaving for school, saying, “Mom, can you work on my dollhouse today? I’ll hold brother so you can work on my dollhouse. How do you say no to that? I used my Ryobi Cordless Circular Saw to cut the tops into the house shape.
I really like this saw because it’s lightweight, has a handy laser on the front, and matches the battery of my drill. That, and it’s super affordable and works great! Cutting out the windows and doors was probably the most time consuming part of this whole project. I used a Kreg Jig to assemble the pieces.
Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Cut four of the back bodice, then back stitch a little at the end. I just completed this build – i haven’t added shutters yet, this would have made the cut regardless. Two of MF, can you send it to me? Didn’t get a pic of this, but is not required for purchase.
Jigsawing is hard to get perfectly straight, but the window trim hid any imperfections. Our happy client made a few requests that aren’t in this plan – we did not add the bottom trim and used caster wheels instead. I also added veneer edge banding to all exposed plywood edges to finish them off. For the floors inside the dollhouse, we wanted to keep the wood, so we used Rustoleum Wood Stain in Dark Walnut. It’s a one step – just apply and wipe off. Easy enough for my seven year old to help out! A quick sanding, and she’s ready for primer!
And then I painted carefully the blue exterior paint on the outsides. We LOVED how it turned out! Of course, Grace loved the dollhouse! Now we get to furnish it! The plans for this dollhouse follow, hope you like them! Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project.
