04-FS-152 - Victorian Barbie Doll House Woodworking Plan.
Barbie houses are not very common to begin with, a Victorian style Barbie doll house is RARE. This would be the gift of a lifetime for a young daughter or granddaughter. We have worked about a dozen more photos throughout the plan that may help in sub-assembly building. Paint chart not included, you can decide what paints to use. This amazing project is the ultimate dream home for young and young-at-heart Barbie doll collectors. This woodworking plan will guide the woodworker through all steps of the building process. The rear of the house is open for full access to seven spacious Victorian rooms ready for decorating just as Queen Victoria may have done herself! In the near future we will be developing woodworking plans for doll sized Victorian furniture. The spaces include a parlor, kitchen, bath, bedroom and childrens playroom. The dormer windows add architectural interest inside and out. The first floor turret is enclosed and accessible from the inside. The second floor turret is open with access from the upper porch. Other options which you have a choice in building include grid work around the base and two styles of bay windows. Also included is information for making replica stained glass windows. There is even a plan included for the display table the doll house is set up on. The majority of the pieces are drawn full scale. Basically, those that can fit on the 11 x 17 inch paper stock. The house walls and some of the larger features are scaled down with dimensions and angles shown but all the gingerbread, shingle and molding patterns and other trim are mostly full size images. There are no electrical diagrams or wiring instructions. But if you have the determination like Emma Robson
, a customer who built this project, you too can make something beautiful.
There really is not a scale for the Victorian House, it is just designed to fit Barbie (model) size dolls that are near 11 1/2 inches tall. The lower floor rooms are 14 inches high. The upper floor is about the same, the loft is about 12 inches at the peak.
