Building a large dollhouse

Building the faces of the dollhouse

Building the faces of the dollhouse

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the sides of the dollhouse. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to mark the cut lines on a piece of 3/4″ plywood. Use a nice circular saw to make the cuts and smooth the edges with sandpaper.

In order to make the holes you need to drill a starting holes and to get the job done with a jigsaw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a cleaner.

Fitting the floors

The next step is to attach the floors to the dollhouse. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to build the floors out of 3/4″ plywood and to drill pocket holes at both ends.

Fit the plywood pieces to the sides of the dollhouse and secure them into place using glue and 1 1/4″ screws. Make sure the corners are  square and the sides plumb, before inserting the galvanized screws into place. 

Building the middle components

The next step of the woodworking project is to build the partitions for the dollhouse. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to mark the cut lines on the  3/4″ plywood sheets and to get the job done with a circular saw. 

Smooth the edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a cleaner. Make sure the corners are square and the components are in a good condition.

Drill pocket holes at both ends of the components and secure them to the dollhouse, as seen in the plans. Make sure the corners are square and leave no gaps between the components.

Add glue to enhance the rigidity of the structure.

Fitting the trims

Fitting the trims

If you want to enhance the look of the large dollhouse, we really suggest you to fit 1×2 trims around the windows of the dollhouse. Cut the trims out of 1×2 lumber (1/4″ thick)  and secure them into place by using waterproof glue and finishing nails.

It is essential to align the components with great care and to make sure there are no gaps between the trims and the dollhouse walls. Smooth the edges with fine-grit sandpaper.

Attaching the back of the doolhouse

Continue the project by attaching the back to the dollhouse. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to build the back out of 1/4″ plywood and to secure it to the dollhouse using finishing nails and glue. Leave no gaps between the components and add glue to enhance the rigidity of the structure.

Attaching the bottom trims

Next attach the trims to the base of the dollhouse. Cut the trims out of 1×2 lumber and secure them to the structure using 1 1/4″ screws or nails. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess using a damp cloth. Leave no gaps between the components.

Building the roof

Building the roof

Attach the 1×4 slats to the roof of the dollhouse and secure them into place using finishing nails. Leave no gaps between the slats and lock them into place properly.

Attach the 1×3 slats to the opposite face of the dollhouse, as described in the diagram. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the horizontal components and secure them to the vertical slats. Center the slats to the dollhouse and secure them into place by using 1 1/2″ finishing nails.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: In order to protect the lumber from water damage, we recommend you to cover the components with several coats of paint. Place the wood dollhouse in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
