Building the Bungalow - Kit # B-1920
These pictures support and augment the instructions, but they are not a replacement!

The pictures are not as orderly as a set of directions for building a dollhouse, but if they help you or if they show you where you are headed, then they serve a noble cause. Any dollhouse is a dance between doing one step at a time and jumping ahead so you'll be ready with the parts when the house is ready for them. Use these pictures to surf the project so your build will make sense to you as it is under weigh.

Test the Parts before Assembly
This may be the most important step in building a dollhouse. The builder is reading the instructions and trying the pieces. This step is valuable for becoming familiar with the parts, for getting the parts grouped in assembly order, and for figuring out the painting plan. Skipping this step is a mistake for beginners and experienced builders alike
