Miniature Dolls' Houses In 1/24th Scale: A Complete Guide To Making And Furnishing Houses

Miniature dolls' houses are cheaper to build, more portable, and easier to display than their full-size counterparts. And, it doesn't take any special techniques or tools to construct them. Two starter projects -- a corner room and a box room -- fine-tune your modeling skills for the four complete houses: a charming Victorian, a country-style thatched cottage, a double-depth Georgian town house, and a Tudor manor.

I've recently begun my first project from this book. The book has progressively more difficult projects in this scale, starting with a very simple room and ending with a very large Tudor house. My project is with one of the more advaced houses, the Georgian townhouse. While I like the way this book is organized, as with most how-to books there are mistakes. I have found a couple of places where the measurments or diagrams don't match or don't add up. But so far none have been too difficult to correct. It would be advisable to spend some time looking at the photos of the house you are working on before building it, especially on the the more advanced projects.

Not really more informative regarding specifics of 1:24 scale; same info as 1:12 scaleAlso, this guy's miniatures look relatively crude and are not as skillfully made as others presented in published books

Was not quite what I had expected. I was looking for something that had more specific directions for making things. So was a little disapointed. However, it has some nice pictures and is still worth adding to my collection.

Lovely book, great pictures, full color. Great period houses and shops, which were inspirational. The author is obviously a great lover and builder of miniature houses and shops. I enjoyed the layout of the book, lots of information on tools, ideas and decorating ideas for each period house. The building patterns were clear and concise. Wish there was a modern pattern in the book which would have made it complete for me. It stays in my collection of books, no thought of selling or giving or lending it. :^)

His books are so well written...for the beginner to the advanced miniaturist. The book is full of wonderful ideas. It is hard to believe they are in miniature, much less 1/2" scale. The instructions are very easy to follow. The photos alone are more than enough to get the ideas flowing.This book is a must for any mini library. Even if you never build anything in 1/2" scale, it is so much fun to read over and over again. Bonus: these ideas will translate well into 1" scale. It's like getting 2 books in one!
