When I first built it....I built a large front yard.
I discovered the large yard didn't allow the house to be moved through a standard sized doorway....so I had to cut it all off.
I began again. Luckily, it was just papier maché, so I was able to add a new front on in no time at all. Please keep this in mind when building a 1:12 scale dollhouse. It needs to be able to fit through a doorway. You never know when you will have to move it.
