My Micro Dollhouse Collection

I started experimenting with making 1/1728th scale houses (dollhouses for 1/144th scale, or dollhouses for dollhouses for dollhouses) a while ago. These are some of the houses and roomboxes I made out of paper, perched on a penny.

This house was supposed to look like my big dollhouse, though I had to simplify by removing the upper porch. The house shown in the picture below is actually a bit too big, I've since shrunk the graphics down a bit.

I could only fit four rooms inside, and I decided to make it open backed, rather than front opening like my real house.

This was an attempt to copy an antique German roombox. I can't just scale down the real graphics, because they would just turn to shapeless blobs. Instead, I recreate the main features, simplifying as much as possible.





This was one of the first houses I tried to make, so the construction is fairly simple. It's still one of my favorite houses though, perfect for the corner of a micro nursery!Here's the inside. I used bits of laser cut paper on the roof, but I'm still looking for something a bit more delicate looking.

There are free tutorials for some of these houses here, if anyone is interested!

  5. Anonymous, I've made them for swaps in the past, but found that doing that many in a short period was draining so I've taken a break from making them recently. If I start making them again, I'll post about them, but that won't be until the summer months at least. Prices would be about $10 or a little more, depending on the house. Thank you for your interest!

  6. Good grief! I've played around with 1/144 a little bit, it was kind of fun but I simply cannot image working in this tiny tiny scale. I really do think that you would have a market for them if you decided to sell them.
