Here's an update. Everything is built, though I have some things still to glue (it's easier to paint while they're apart).
I'm actually painting now, which is a pain because I hate painting and there's a ton of different colors.
Left side bottom is living room and dining room. Middle floor is parent's bedroom (with balcony on back) and nursery (back wall is missing as a friend is painting a mural on it). Top floor is office and older kid's bedroom on right, with a hole in the roof and ladder to get up to the attic. The roof has a large open space in the middle that will be a patio, and then the right attic has skylights. The trim at the top will go all the way around - I haven't glued it yet.
Front door is actually oak, as I had a small piece. There's a lot that hooks into it - front door handle (in actuality a cabinet handle), hinges, cabinet magnetic catch so it stays closed. Yes, there is a big knot in the front but you won't see it after it's had three coats of bright pink
That's gallery railing from Home Depot. The windows were jigsaw cut and then I used some molding around the edges. Finally, there's jambs and sash made of...paint stirrers!
The pool has some blue painter tape on it as I was painting. The pool has 1/4" or so of epoxy in the bottom to simulate water. I'll be covering the backyard with a flat green tile carpet to simulate grass. Astroturf and that stuff is too spikey and you can't stand dolls on it. The diving board may break...it's glued with a 1/4" dowel.
See my first post for construction details. The main frame is cut so that the frame and floor come out at the same height. They'll be covered either in thin peel-and-stick pergo-type stuff or carpet.
There are six wheels (corners and in the middle)
OK, so your typical house doesn't have a chapel, but this one does
My daughter's namesake is my late aunt, and I have a cross from her that I will mount inside.
The top floor has a laundry and a small library (or anything else - it's kind of a bonus room with no fixed purpose). The middle floor will be the bathroom. The bottom floor is the kitchen. Of course, it's her house so she can reassign rooms at will!
Those attics are not glued/screwed in yet. I thought about trying to find some kind of plastic bubble material for the skylights but decided to just leave them open because she can reach in, etc. The top of that clamp is where the ceiling hole from the older kids' room is.
Finally, here is a look at the kid's room "door to the attic". That's just 1/4" hardwood dowling. I'm concerned it might break/snap but if it does it's not a huge thing to fix.
This is the trim that will go all along the top. I am not
an artist. That is molding I bought at Home Depot with that leaf pattern cut into it. I just painted it.
All the paint is flat, as I'll be using glossy polyurethane to cover everything.
Next up is painting everything, then gluing/screwing the roof in, and finally pergo/carpet.
