I have some business to finish up today, so I am taking the day off from building my Glencroft, but I thought I would list my dream dollhouses here. Someone on the Greenleaf forum posted their progress in building the Harrison. I'd love to get my paws on one of those. I wonder how much time it takes to build relative to the Glencroft.

As you can tell, I love the Tudor style. Ever since I was a little kid, I loved the half-timbered look and wanted to live in such a house.

My dollhouse obsession has also allowed me to appreciate other forms of architecture. One of my favorites is Carpenter Gothic. Thanks to the Westville by Greenleaf, I am smitten with steeply pitched roofs, gothic windows and gingerbread.

Here is a great link to photographs of real carpenter gothic homes, including the real Westville!

As you can see, I have other homes listed on the right hand side of this blog that I would love to have, but these top the list.

If you have favorites that you've built or dream homes on your wishlist, what are they?

  1. I spent a lot of time looking at different houses when I was going to buy my first (and only) dollhouse. I wanted it to be my dream home that I wish I could afford in real life. I finally chose the Hillcrest from Real Good Toys with the side addition and the gazebo. The wrap around verandah was the main selling point to me. I am surprised that I have never seen another Hillcrest in all the groups I am in but I guess I am country and not too many people are interested in that. I also chose colours that I think were inspired by "Ann of Green Gables" as that was my favorite book.
