Barbie Doll Houses should be as Imaginative as You are. Surfing the internet we have come across some creative ideas concerning your fashion doll's living environment. And there definitely seems to be no shortage where accessories and clothing are concerned.
However, concerning building kits, it is the tendency to NOT come up with many online at all.
You want the model you choose to be attractive, entertaining, and creative for you, as well as safe for your children. Depending mostly on who you intend your dollhouse for.
It is our opinion that large scale dollhouses made of wood, or similar building material, that actually fit your fashion toys are cumbersome and weighty. Therefore many companies are not offering to sell this kind of kit online. Mostly because of the cost in shipping.
Many consumers would object to the costs of shipping as well, not just manufacturers. A wooden mansion may be produced locally by an artisan in your area for a more acceptable outcome.
As well wooden models tend to be made and sold more commonly for 1:12 scale structures in general.
Our suggestion would be to adjust any miniature plans you find into playscale. But when taking this route these kinds of plans may need to be adjusted by an architect for them to actually function as they are needed to.
Perhaps with that concept, though, it would be just as simple to pay for the freight if you happened to find someone willing to custom design a dollhouse for you. Wherever they may be located.
However if you do decide to adjust the plans you find, yourself, try making a mock up of it first in something like bristle board.
Visualize it as the real thing and measure and adjust to your heart's content. Then make the real house once you are satisfied with your results.
