Wow! Everything is so impressive about this house. The brick chimney is massive, the large picture windows! Wow! As I mentioned in the previous comment, I have stayed in a house identical to this, incredible to see it in miniature. Love it! In the life-sized version, the front door was to the far left on the side. Room arrangement: from the left front corner, it was study, entry hall, bathroom, master bedroom. From the right front corner, it was guest bedroom, bath, mud room hall, kitchen, family room. Also, there was a partial split level basement under the right side wing. The basement had an exit level with the ground; also, had a covered side carport which served as a kitchen patio up top. In the basement: utility, games room, bedrooms, bath, hall exit.

The problem with this house is the huge space that it occupies. It is next to me now, but the 3 sections are stacked up on each other. The ground space it occupies when assembled is impossible to accommodate in a real modern house. Grecons like living in it, when it is on the ground, as it were.

These bungalows are amazing - I wonder who was supposed to live in them?


1:16 smart, contemporary early 1960s, dolls house dolls. Trouble was, no-one was making them. My childhood dolls house was a U (pic 200), which I got for Christmas, 1962. It had to be inhabited by whatever ragtag assortment of dolls I could find - none of them very convincing. Poor Mrs Dollshouse-Doll (a tiny teenage fashion doll, barely 3" high) had to be a widow - I couldn't find a spouse for her anywhere. Her three children were various small plastic dolls - her baby came out of a Christmas cracker the day I got the house! He had to wait until the local toyshop re-opened after Christmas before he got his mum. (There is a popular myth that children aren't concerned by scale or realism. That was NOT true of my 7-year old self. I wanted everything "right" then, just as I do now!).
