I came up with some simple modern dollhouse designs for my book, Made to Play. This is one design that didn’t make it in the book, so I thought I’d share it here. It’s very fast and easy to make. All you need is a board, (any length is fine) and two small strips of wood for the feet. Then glue or nail the feet to the main board. It creates a nice open space for playing with little pieces of dollhouse furniture.

In my book, there are also instructions for how to make my larger modern dollhouse, along with all of the furniture. Only three months to go! I’m getting excited.

  1. Hi Joel! I’m kinda late in arriving to the Made by Joel party but I’m so glad I made it finally! What a fantastic blog you have and I can’t wait to check out your book. I write a blog about Children’s Books and when your book is released, I’d love to do a feature on you. Let me know if you might be interested in that! I’m also doing a post shortly about All-Things-Dollhouse-Related and I’m going to do a small write up up about your great platform idea, I’ll link and credit back to you of course :) Keep up the AWESOME! Aloha, Melissa
