A few things you should consider when building your dolls house
from a plan are:
What type of wood you will use (MDF or plywood are most popular).
Remember the type of wood and thickness you use could alter
the measurements of your dolls house and you may need to take
this into account when following the plan. For example MDF is
much thicker than plywood and you would need to allow for the
difference in thickness when measuring.
Will you make your own windows & doors or use ready made
one's? Making your own windows and doors to fit your dolls house
can be a very tricky business and you can purchase these ready-made.
There is a wide selection of windows and doors available and
you will find these in most miniature stores.
Cost's: Building from a plan may seem like a cheap way to build
a dolls house but remember you will need the tools to do it
and these can be expensive.
