Dollhouse Shell Kits in 1" and 1/2" Scale

Georgian Style
Colonial Style
Victorian Style

Each of these 3 shell kits are available in 1" scale and 1/2" scale.

Inspired by the popularity of the styles in the 3-In-l dollhouse Plan Book (p. 25) , these unfinished shell kits from Houseworks and Real Good Toys are the answer for those who do not want to build from scratch. These kits provide all the basic pieces for the house in the scale and period of your choice, yet leave room for your creativity in building and finishing. The houses shown above were finished by Houseworks' miniaturists and are meant as a starting point to unleashing your imagination. Component sets, with our selection of doors, windows, trim, siding, shingles and much more also available. The component sets even include a copy of the 3-In-l Dollhouse Plan Book to give you more ideas and information.

These front and top-opening shell kits are constructed of pre-cut 3/8" cabinet-grade plywood and include step- by-step instructions. They all have movable room dividers to make up to 9-11 rooms. The wooden backs are solid (no windows or doors), so these dollhouse fit nicely against a wall.
