Kit Bashing/ Customizing

I don't know if people still refer to it as "kit bashing", but that's what I called it when I did my original customization of this dollhouse. I started with a sketch of what I wanted to change directly on top of the photo in the instruction booklet. This was pre-Photoshop and before everyone had a computer in their home.... and long before people searched the internet for every little thing. I had to learn as I went along.....making mistakes and learning from them.

You can see how much I actually had to build from scratch when you you see the original photo from the above instruction booklet. I think that's why I'm so attached to this dollhouse...because I put so much time and learning experience into it.
