The Start of the New Project 'Le Château'

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well. Here I am once again and today I will be sharing with you my new project 'Le Château'. 

'Le Château'

'Le Château' is another discontinued Dolls House Emporium kit and it was their very last designed dolls house that they made. 'Le Château' was sent to me all the way from Germany as a special Christmas gift given to me by my dear friend Michael Mursanow.  I was so excited to start it as soon as I was done with my beautiful 'Pembroke Grange'

There is always the non-exciting bits when starting a doll house but they are the fundamental parts of the project. There is no turning back if you mess up in the beginning.  Besides......it is part of the fun!

So like always I start by dry building the kit, study it, take notes and see what I need to add or change.

I have to say I am quite impressed with its size and dimensions and I totally love the design. There will be just minor additions added to it. I have decided to have it decorated in a French Style. 

It  has six nice sized rooms and a nice staircase in the center. 

Once I got all my notes done, I started painting the wood panels accordingly, before building the walls and flooring. 

I decided to alter two walls in the building. The first room on the left and the wall in the attic. I will be adding the walls to the edge so I can add doors. I prefer having an entrance with a door than just having an open wall. 

Once I receive my internal doors I would be able to open the wall so the doors can fit. 

Finally I started painting the doors for the front. That's the most tedious part but like I say, it's part of the fun.

So that's all for today. I know there isn't much to see for now but it's the start! Hopefully next weekend I will start working on the roof of the dolls house. So make sure to keep tuned for the next update. 

Take Care and See You Soon.




  1. Already a new project??!!! You totally amaze me and I am going to be following this with enthusiasm. Good Luck!

  2. I am looking forward to seeing this build from the beginning!

  3. A new project - oh boy! I really like the style of this kit. I'm always in awe of miniature artists that build complete houses for their projects. I cannot see myself ever doing so as I like to build a room box then move on to another one. I have a very short attention span! But - it doesn't stop me from admiring artists like you and living vicariously through them as they work on theirs. Great start! Looking forward to watching the progress. - Marilyn D.

  5. It's coming along,d ear. And yes - the extra walls are a step in the Right direction. I have no clue why they were left out in the kit.

    1. Thank you so much my dear Michael. I am so glad that you like it so far. There is still so much to do!
