Miniature dolls' houses are cheaper to build, more portable, and easier to display than their full-size counterparts. And, it doesn't take any special techniques or tools to construct them. Two starter projects -- a corner room and a box room -- fine-tune your modeling skills for the four complete houses: a charming Victorian, a country-style thatched cottage, a double-depth Georgian town house, and a Tudor manor.

Each of these books approaches dolls' houses somewhat differently from the usual books on constructing houses and making furnishings. Morse concentrates mainly on furnishings and interior components for English period houses from Stuart (1630s) to modern (1990s). Instructions are for adding interior elements to already constructed houses, and furniture is pictured in photos without directions for construction. Rowbottom's houses in 1/24th scale are half as large as the usual 1/12th scale used for most miniatures. His instructions and diagrams are for building period houses with furniture pictured but not described in the text. Miniaturists will find both books useful for specialized types of houses. Recommended for public libraries needing more of this type of material.
