I was on youtube and happened to search "Amityville Dollhouse" and came across another version of the house I would love to own - the dollhouse from the dollhouse movie! It looks like someone went ahead and built one and it's pretty spot on in detail!

Lol me too but also vision that horrible polka dot wallpaper too. If or when I do the real house version, it will have all that in there though.
YES, you really should do a real house version too! Your dollhouse looks so great. I like the idea that you used Allison's wallpaper. You should really try to copy the other wallpapers of the original house too. It would be so awesome.
But anyway, thanks for your work, your Amityville movie house looks so cool too!!! :-)

And well, I first think of that "Not Now Darling" image too when I think of Ronnie's bedroom, LOL.

Thank you sir! On this house, the only wallpaper I'll be using out of the real house is Allison's room ( which is complete), Dawns room and maybe the master bedroom. Still not sure on that one but wouldn't be too hard to do. Right now I'm currently working on the back of the house and finishing the exterior without paint. Also had to redo the thickness of the roofline. Sunporch was redone and the kitchen balcony. I added 1/8" plywood so now the entire houses exterior is all wood except the main roof. The main roof will have an extra layer of foam board and all retrimmed all the way around. This will be as close to detail of the movie as i can possibly get it. The only thing I may leave alone is the front door overhang. I'll have pics soon.

Unfortunately the only plans I can think of is the paper model that was posted online, which could be made with foam board, but, it definitely wouldn't be dollhouse sized.

With all of the dollhouses being built, it's too bad an actual kit can't be created and sold.
Gonna go make me some Sugar Cookie Stew! Yum yum!

If you go to nearly the beginning of this thread, you'll get an idea. I've posted photos from the very first cut of foam board on this thread.

This was just after the first cut.

Image

This was when I started cutting in for the windows on the front. They are dollhouse windows which have been reduced in size about 1/8 ".

Image

This is how it looks today.

Image

And this is how the back looks but with the siding all finished. I'm currently adding to the roof for a thicker roofline. Once that is finished, I'll then finish all the trim all the way around along with details and gutters on the back. The whole house is made of foamboard but covered with wood siding and pretty much wood everything.

I'd hope not! His crew did a shitty job on the windows. Looked like it was made of match sticks. I could build that creep a model and would be extremely accurate. Will also cost him plenty too! :twisted:

Its a little over 2 ft wide and almost 4 ft in length including the sunporch.

Update:::: I havent been working too much on it lately but here and there. As I was doing the siding on the back of the house and on the kitchen/ second level balcony, I came to realize that the roof line on both the sunporch, balcony and the main roof line of the entire house had to be thicker and trim needed to be redone. I knew the main roof had to be thicker but thought I could get away with it. I probably could have but as detailed as I tend to be, I made it happen.

Starting with doing the siding on the back.

Image

The balcony door was made from scratch. It needs to be rebuilt because the window frame in the door came out uneven.

Image

Image

Trying to compare and just making it easier by setting my laptop on the chimney. Even though the core of the house is foamboard, what is built around it makes it much stronger! You can also see the old roof line and how thin it was.

Image

Starting with the sunporch, I used 3/8" plywood to raise the thickness of the roof. The posts for the railing now seat into the plywood like a locking puzzle.

Image

This shows the thickness on the sunporch roof line.

Image

Now tearing the black cover paper off the roof so I can compress the second layer of foamboard.

Image

The right side shows what I was aiming for. It was an experiment to see how I wanted the thickness to be as well as the trim and the clearance for the shingles. I need a really low profile shingle so they are not too expose from viewing either side of the house. The left side is where I came into an issue with uneven angles at the ridge. I thought I was going to have to redo the entire roof as well as part of the wall. Didnt have to do all that and just added a shim and some extra glue. Saved me from a bigger project.

Image



New layer made thicker.

Image

Image

Front revealing the new eave. Had to made it thicker to match the rest of the house. Gutters had to be partially removed for this process.

Image

Front now finished.

Image

Image

Back is nearly finished. Only thing left now is to locate where the pegs should go, gutters and railing for the back.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

After the back side is done, I'll be putting on the shingles and finishing the dormers with siding. Shingles will also be wood and watercolored dark grey. After that, the entire house will have a wooden shell.

Thank you Sherb! Thank you Anthony! Yes the exterior is almost finished. Still trying to hold back from painting it until everything outside and inside is complete. Only exterior painting done as of now is the windows, doors and the middle ridge front and back.

Thank you! Chances are you wont find one unless you build one or until I ever finish mine and sell it. I havent worked on it since I last posted back in April.
