1/1,728 scale dollhouses

It comes up occasionally that you need a dollhouse for the dollhouse inside your dollhouse.  I like to make–and occasionally teach a class where students make–workshops for a 1/144 miniaturist, who of course is making dollhouses (what a shocker). But you might have a 1/144 scale miniature shop, or just a Making Dollhouse houses from Fiddler's Greennursery or child’s room in 1/144.

There are lots of different ways you can make a tiny house.  Some folks cut them out of wood and paint them.  Others make a small printie and wrap it around a block of wood. There are also some etched brass versions from Severn Models, and tiny wooden models by Arnold Volker that you can assemble.

But I like to miniaturize card models and then cut them out and assemble them using tweezers, glue, and bit of profanity.  Over the years, Fiddler’s Green has been very generous about letting me use their models for my classes, and suggested I put together a tutorial for the home schooler.  You can find that tutorial here: Making Dollhouse houses from Fiddler’s Green. And it comes with thanks not only to Scott Fyn of Fiddler’s Green, but Roger Pattenden, the Illinois State government, and others for sharing their knowledge and card models over the years.
