American Girl: the dollhouse years

 This year Shaun and Addie decided to surprise the girls for Christmas and make them an American Girl doll dollhouse.  They had locked the girls out of the basement while it was being built, but a little girl followed Shaun quietly downstairs once and from thence on was in on the secret.  Luckily the girls didn't understand when she tried to spoil the surprise by trying to tell them.
Phase 1: Construction + a baby ballerina.

 Phase 2:  Painting and tons of beautiful detail.
Phase 3: Testing the furniture out.
Wha-la!  Finished!
Is that amazing or what?!!!
Shaun and Addie should go into the doll making business.

When the dolls aren't home they go camping, ride bikes, or visit the stuffed animals on the center shelf.

 After all that hard supervising and testing Sophie is wiped out literally by the swim noodle.

I think this is amazing! We are going to be building a dollhouse for our daughter's AG dolls like this. Do you have plans or measurements? Just wondering the sizing of rooms and all! It's a girls dream! Love it!
