The Laurel Dollhouse kit is a wood dollhouse kit which is put together like a puzzle. All of the pieces are pre-cut and simply need to be popped out when you are ready to assemble. We glued all of the joints with hot glue made specifically for wood.
As expected there are places where the pieces don’t fit together exactly flush and we plan to caulk the spaces where the walls meet the floor, etc. A lot of hardcore dollhouse builders use tiny trims and moldings but I find that to be WAY too much for a child’s dollhouse so we feel a bead of caulk will suffice for making crisp joints!
Overall, I’m so happy with how it looks all put together and can’t wait to help her pick out some Calico Critters furniture to fill it out. The couple of animals she has look so adorable in it!
Rockler is no longer carrying The Laurel Dollhouse but it can be bought online through Amazon. It takes a bit of time to put together but I think it’s well worth it to get a handcrafted personalized wood dollhouse that you’ll want to keep out and display.
