It's easy and fun to build a doll's house from a dollhouse kit. Make sure you have some wood glue and a hammer. You can purchase them at your local hardware store. The kits come with everything else you'll need, including precut 3/8 inch plywood walls, floors, roof, balconies, railings, stairs, windows, doors, posts, nails and fully illustrated instructions. Before you start be sure to read the instructions and identify all the parts.
After we set up and read the directions we glued and nailed the floors and walls together in less than half an hour. Being careful to line up the floor opening for the stairs, we filled the grooves with glue and fitted the floors/ceilings to the walls. We used a hammer and the nails included in the kit to secure the outside walls and floors.
