What a Basic Kit Contains
Your kit may contain:
- Pre-cut wood sheets. So those of us who have no experience or desire or tools to cut our own wood may find this a definite advantage.
- Silk screened plastic window sheet. You will note this producer has done away with any possible mishap concerning glass. Which in our opinion is a good decision.
- Set of instructions. This is a good item to include. When all else fails of course read your instructions. In fact before anything fails - read them first. Why wait?
- Set of schematic diagrams. Another great study tool for those of us interested in the how-to's. All this info can help in knowing how-to proceed. They even illustrate how a pattern is laid out on wood. Which will be valuable info to some.
- List of items needed for you to supply. This is a must-know list for sure. It's nice that they think of that kind of list. If not you may find half way through your project that you have to make a special trip to a store to find what you need.
- Tips, tricks and helpful ideas. Which for some of us will be a great addition.
Additional Ideas of Interest
- When you open your construction kit you will find the contents needed to build your dollhouse. Some kits contain everything except for a few extra easily obtained items. Such as paint or glue. Then you can even get kits that have less or more elements. These you will have to get for yourself as well.
- If you have gotten your kit to explore the how-to's .. You should study all items included. Especially if you have plans to sell and design your own products. So study everything even down to how the kit is put together to ship to you.
- Next look at the written material to gain ideas for your designs. Always come up with unique ways of writing out instructions and pay special attention if you find something you feel necessary but is not included. What you do not see could give you ideas that no one has thought to do yet.
- What the kit will give you is the view of how it all is done. Plus you can work away at it at your leisure. Which is what a lot of people will find convenient. A lot of us do not have the time to travel to a workshop for these important how-to's.
- One of the best benefits to the kit environment is that it was put together by people who do have years of experience. So that is a help for sure. Your kit will usually contain a phone number you can call for extra assistance. We found this number in the Introduction to the Instruction and Assembly Guide.
- After studying all of this practical information and experiencing the actual construction .. You would reasonably know if you had the desire to pursue design work for yourself. And if that is the case there is nothing stopping you from going right into putting your own design down on paper. And starting the process now.

Get the Best of Both Worlds ..
Doll house kits are the best of both worlds. You get access to the knowledge but you don't have to attend a class. Plus you get to take your time with the process. And learn as you go. However there are a couple of drawbacks too we have to mention.
- You won't have access to the one who made the doll house kit or
- A good dollshouse instructor if you have questions.
However Help is just a Step Away ..
Ask Questions of Full-Size Constructions Workers
That said however there are people online and possibly around you whom you can ask a question or two of. But make sure you pick people who know something about constructing dollhouses.
You can not ask the "know it all" of the neighborhood unless he truly does know. You can however, ask people who work in construction though. They may know how to do what you want to do.
The guy who builds houses may actually know a thing or two about how you can make your dollshouse all fit together.
Check out Forums
And then you can hook up with forums on the net. People all over the world may have had their say about your miniature construction project by the time you're finished. That would never have been the case a few years ago would it?
The internet is an amazing place where you can find help in any area from anyone who knows. But still stay away from the "know it alls". They seem to only want to hear themselves talk while steering you in the wrong direction.
Books a Great Learning Tool

Check out our Crafter's Bookshelf here and don't forget to check the additional subcategories too. You never know where or when you'll happen upon thee book you've been searching for.
