Yesterday, the laser cut Rosedale Dollhouse kit arrived. I was so excited to get it because I have had the older diecut one downstairs forever waiting to one day be built. Dean (the owner of Greenleaf dollhouses) told me to put it together as soon as I got it so I could see for myself just how fast I could assemble the house. I must say, after working on this house, I have decided that I only want to do laser cut houses!! I literally did not sand ANYTHING!! All of the wood pieces and trim pieces were just perfect. I assembled the entire house (Minus the inside window trim only) in 2 hours (Okay.... I had a lunch break and kept the timer on cause I forgot to turn it off).
This house is much bigger than i thought it was too. The clean cuts really gives the finished product a really beautiful look. The wood looks perfect. I just gotta say once again that I loved building this kit and if you have NOT tried a product from the Greenleaf Dollhouses Laser cut line, now is the perfect time to.
Now, I'll go back to sanding the Beacon Hill die cut house that i had been so excited about (until Dean spoiled me with the Laser cut house LOL ). I think I want to build a Rosedale for myself one day soon.
There are some New Surprises coming our way from Greenleaf Dollhouses soon too so stay tuned!
I also wanna say Thank you to Dean & Lisa for sending me the kit. It really made my day to have the chance to put something together this fast. Yeap, I am still working on the Beacon Hill. I feel like i am working on it in slow motion. The house is huge and there are so many pieces to it!! There are over 10 pieces to assemble each dormer window alone and there are five of those plus other windows. I was able to get those glued in place today too! The picture below shows the Beacon Hill next to the Rosedale (before I added the Beacon Hill Dormers).
