Built in the round to look good from all angles
Features on all sides mean our dolls houses are realistic.  We don’t believe in bare, unsightly backs.  Our buildings are designed to look as good from behind as they do from the front. Back of St. Kentigern'sBack of Wetherlam Row

Easy to light
Prepared for lighting
- all our dolls houses are provided with cavity walls where needed, ready for you to lay in place the wires from your lights.  Also, conductive tape is fitted behind false walls, and transformer points are positioned upon the perimeter of the base.  Needless to say, everything is hidden from view.  If you wish, we will put the lights and fires in for you.  Just ask!
