Ok, here are the front and back views of "the Big Dollhouse." As you can see the door, windows, and porch railing have been removed for painting and the shingles are only half done.
Of the three rooms with both floors and wallpaper cut, I'm only happy with the bedroom, which is the one with lilac carpet on the second floor. The living room wallpaper is horribly bubbled. So much so that I think I will have to take it out and do it over. The kitchen wallpaper didn't do well either. I think I want something different in there anyway, so no big loss. None of the floors are glued down and there are no baseboards yet.
The lighting still works on the first two floors. Apparently I need to redo the junction from the second to the third floor. Not bad since it got moved twice.
The ceilings are all bare. I need to do something with them too. I have to replace a post on the bottom porch. The whole thing almost fell the first time I moved and Brad was barely able to catch it. I'm happy to loose one post versus the whole house.
I had planned on putting some of the goodies into their respective rooms and taking some pictures for you but the camera batteries barely let me get these pictures downloaded. So sometime after we get another package of batteries because these were the last two from the package. That's how it always works. [We recycle our batteries in case you wondered.]
FH and I determined that the transformer and lead in wire that we purchased for the Greenleaf do work. The junction splice does not. In fact in figuring this out I ended up being stabbed with the splice in my right thumb. Not quite sure how I managed that one. FH came running down the hall upon hearing my cries for help. Isn't he grand?
Now my thumb looks like it's bit snacked upon by a 1:24 scale vampire...
Upon further inspection the two prongs on the splice are bent. So I think we've discovered the problem. We are going to get another splice and try again on the Greenleaf.
