This was the first Greenleaf house I every built. I've built several more since. It creates a beautiful house, but be sure to have sanding paper and wood putty handy. When I built the kit the directions recommended using a glue gun for assembly. Do NOT use a glue gun! Years after assembly, I've had to replace pieces due to that mistake! http://www.nanasminis.com/beacon-hill.html
The “Beacon Hill” dollhouse kit was a Christmas gift. It was my first attempt at such a project but I learned so much from the experience that I would do it all again in a heartbeat! Today it still gives me enjoyment because all the difficult parts of the assembly are finished: extras such as electricity, wall paper, ceiling sheets, flooring, and crown molding and baseboards which required the use of a miter box and accurate measuring. Because it was my first attempt and because I had to use tweezers in places too small for fingers to fit and mirrors to see “around” blind spots, it is far from perfect. The small framed pictures throughout are actually ancestors in our family so hopefully whichever of our granddaughters “inherits” this “treasure” will appreciate it as much as I! It’s still a work in progress and so much fun acquiring all the “extras.” I would highly recommend any Greenleaf product because of the precise instructions and helpful hints given along the way.
Not for a first project.
This kit is awesome. With alot of patience you will have a crown piece for your collection. That being said, it is alot of work. Become good friends with sandpaper, clamps, and high quality glue that sets fast. Read the instructions.. Then read them again. I am currently building my second Beacon Hill and it is still a challenge but the final product is soooooo worth it. I am changing a few things here and there. Many people do leave out the staircase. I think that is a shame because it is one of my favorite features. It draws the eye in and creates wonder. This one is going to be a haunted house and the architectural style is perfect for it.
The WOW Factor
Yes...this mansion is a lot of work,but nothing worthwhile is ever easy. There is so much detail on this house,its incredible. The rooms are a nice big size,the kitchen could be a little bigger, but many people add an addition,usually a greenhouse type look,off the kitchen side or even leave out the stairs for more interior rooms. The stairs and entry way are my very favorite parts of the house. Its a special accomplishment to complete this house,and you will have a lot to be proud of when its finished. If you have any questions while building you can get plenty of helpful support and advice on the Greenleaf forum.This is what I did with mine: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/index.php?autocom=gallery&req=si&img=55594d.
