test the parts
This is possibly the most important step in building any dollhouse. The builder is reading the instructions and trying the pieces. This step is valuable for becoming familiar with the parts, getting the parts grouped for assembly and painting, and finalizing a plan for paint and exterior details. Skipping this step is a mistake for beginners and experienced builders alike
