Modular stick built dollhouse PART III

Quick study or crude beginnings:

To see entire project click here 

On the left is the wall section - you can see the baseboard on the 2nd floor & crown molding of the 1st.  In between is the groove for the floor tongue. Notice inside the groove on the wall 2 copper strips for the electrical contact to connect the floor/ceiling or for wiring to the 2nd floor. I 'borrowed' my wife's stained glass copper strips.
On the right is the floor & the small stick is 1/16" thick floor board.

Floor & wall attached with floor board tucked under baseboard.

Walls or 45° pitch roof sections.

Connecting roof  halves or walls with locking spline. Spline slides from the top into position.

Parts locked in place.

  1. Hi Kathi! Thanks for all the kind words. Glad I could help in some small way with your mini projects :)

    About the modern house - I would use plexiglass or plastic like the kind used for CD jewel cases & the plastic would slide into grooves in the walls w/o glue.

    Water Putty note: add some white glue to the mix!
