Retrofit the Kit Tudor Dollhouse: Part 1 The Waiting - Real Good Toys© Country Tudor CC15

In the beginning....

I can't remember what came first, the half yard of cute medieval fabric or the 3/4 scale Barton Tudor furniture, 



but I realized I had a hankerin' to put the two together in a dollhouse and experiment with the Tudor style.


Eventually, after much research and cost considerations, I decided on the pre-fab kit, the Real Good Toys' Country Tudor CC15 (I'm still too chicken to start a dollhouse from scratch!). It's 1:12 scale, so I hope I can make it span between the three quarter scale and one to one scale worlds. You can find it at, though I bought mine through


Real Good Toy's Country Tudor CC15.

It has that front opening wall feature which keeps the dust out and eliminates the question, "What side of the dollhouse should I display?". It has a small profile, 29"h x 14"w x 12 1/2"d, which fits well in my small home and with my fledgling dollhouse construction abilities!


So whilst waiting for the wee kit to arrive....


I entertain myself with possible plans for retrofitting it, using some of the other cool Tudor type stuff I have accumulated.

Oh! I can hardly wait for it to arrive!


  1. I think that looks a great little kit. I'm sure you will be able to adjust things to work the Barton Tudor furniture in well. I look forward to seeing its progress.

    1. Thank you for your vote of confidence, 12Create! I probably bit off a bit more than I can chew!

  2. Looks like a really exciting little project, Little Loosie - can't wait to see your ideas come to life! Zxx
