“The house was a huge success, and I finished it day before Christmas Eve. I make one for each of my in-laws when they have a girl and they turn four. The first one I did is still loved after 6 years.”

“I wanted to tell you how wonderful the dollhouse is. I have 3 daughters and the oldest has outgrown it, but the younger 2 spend hours playing with it. It’s such a great toy, and I really appreciate your company producing the kit. We love it!! Thank you so much for a quality product and fast shipping. You were amazing to work with and I am so grateful to you for helping me give my girls such a wonderful gift. I just love the dollhouses that you produce and have told all my friends and co-workers to purchase a kit for their daughters and sons.”

“The quality is unbelievable! You just don’t find things like this anymore. Never have I ever had a little girl not walk into my house, see that dollhouse, and immediately want to stay with me for hours just so they could play with it….I never thought about the cost because of the quality.You have done more than build something that will last, you created years of great memories for our family!”

I bought the Country Dollhouse from you December 9, 1999. I remember the date like it was yesterday. After I had ordered the Dollhouse for my 3 & 4 yr old girls I went home to the fire department putting my house fire out. While I was gone the electrical in my 1 1/2 yr old home started a fire in my kitchen area. All of our Christmas was burned and gone. The Country Dollhouse was still at your shop and all I had to do was pick it up right before the holiday. For 8 years the Dollhouse has been my girls most favorite item they have ever had. We still sit and play with it. They are now 11 and 12 and there isn’t a week or two that doesn’t go by that they don’t entertain smaller children with it, or just themselves.

We want to purchase all the furniture for each room. Which is our next goal. At the time we just couldn’t buy it, now I wished I would have bought the furniture sooner. The quality is unbelievable! You just don’t find things like this anymore. Never have I ever had a little girl not walk into my house see that Dollhouse and immediately want to stay with me for hours just so they could play with it.

December 9, 1999 was a bad day for our little family. But the purchase that I made that day has lasted a long time and will be with us for even more. My girls disagree all the time of who will get to take the Dollhouse for when they have little girls. Problem, it will stay at grandma’s house! They will have to purchase their own. Please don’t stop making them! At least for another 15 years. Everything worked out just fine, we were back in our house about 3 months later. The Dollhouse and Barbie’s were pretty much all we could think to put together 2wks after the fire, but it was one of the best gifts that year. I love and cherish the memories that we have from playing with the Dollhouse. For three months it was the only toys that my girls had. I never thought about the cost because of the quality.

You have done more than build something that will last, you created years of great memories for our family!

thank you!

Thank you so much for offering a quality dollhouse product. I had shopped for a long time prior to purchasing your dollhouse for my daughter. There is nothing on the market comparable to yours, in quality. She absolutely loves it and I plan to pass it down to her children. Thanks again.

“We purchased the kit last December after a long search for a quality dollhouse. I built the house after last Christmas. This fall, I just felt that this had to get done before the upcoming Christmas. I did not want to rush with the wallpaper and wall trim, so I’ll take a break until January and finish it then. My daughter loves it!!!

I will pass it on to the doll house store here because there are many people looking for Barbie size.

I have always wanted to find a wooden Barbie doll house for my daughter, she won one through the Hawaiian tropic beauty pageant but it is the cheap fisher price plastic and is falling apart. I was wondering if you will still have the furniture around the month of Sept and how much all of it would be? My husband is in the army and is being shipped out on the 5th of September. And I want to buy the furniture because my brother is a cabinet maker and is fantastic making wood items and I have asked him to build me a doll house but I do need furniture and maybe I will buy your doll house. Everything is beautiful thanks for bringing heirloom doll houses back.

“I ran across your website while looking for a [custom] dollhouse builder, and I am amazed by your work!…Would you be willing to do a custom job for me?…I started looking for someone to build this in August and had four different guys keep my plans for weeks, and then decided against building it.

I live in Utah, and I recently drew up plans for a doll house for my girls for Christmas. I am having a hard time finding someone to build it for me. I ran across your website while looking for a builder, and I am amazed by your work! It’s crazy, but when you see my plan, you will see it looks very similar to your creations. I designed my plan around the size of rooms I need for the furniture I’ve been collecting from the Angelina Ballerina collection, retired from the Pleasant Company. The dolls are actually 10 inch stuffed mice. Angelina’s house is a very whimsical English Cottage.

Would you be willing to do a custom job for me? It could be one of your house plans only with the dimensions I need for the furniture. I need three rooms, a kitchen, living, and bedroom, and also a place for books. I would also like a patio with railing and a drawer to store all of the doll clothes and accessories, which in my drawing look similar to your houses, except much simpler. I have the room measurements on the plan. I have included an attachment with my plan and pictures of the furniture so that you can see the look I am trying to achieve. If you could do this for me, I would appreciate it so much! I started looking for someone to build this in August and had four different guys keep my plans for weeks, and then decided against building it. I am getting desperate! Please let me know ASAP if this is possible. Thank you so much!!!

“I have amazed myself so far! Actually, it’s your attention to detail and your good instructions that has made it easier than I thought it was going to be.

I’ve searched the whole internet for Barbie sized doll houses and keep coming back to yours. There is nothing in the world like them, they’re beautiful (PERFECT) and I know my daughter Heather would play forever with one of these. My problem is that I live in Scotland, so, to buy the house and furniture and bits, and to have it posted over here will probably set me back about $900 +, which I can’t afford. I can afford to buy the furniture, shingles, railings ext. & get them shipped over, (if you sell abroad) but it would be really helpful if I had the plans to make the Alpine or Cottage. I could start building now & get it ready for Christmas.
Thanks in anticipation of any help, advice. Best wishes,Sharron, in Scotland UK

Thanks for all the info. My husband has threatened to build a dollhouse from scratch but going by the state of our garden shed (he built it) I’ve decided against it and will order a dollhouse from you instead.

I own a dollhouse shop in Texas and have been in business for 11 years. I just happened upon your site, and was very impressed! Every year I get many requests for Barbie sized houses around Christmas time, and unfortunately, there aren’t many to choose from. I can choose from the Kits of my regular dollhouse supplier (very expensive), or the prefab ones (cheap) that are not good quality. Do you give any kind of trade discounts to shops? If not, that’s OK, but I’d like to compliment you on your dollhouses.

I just wanted to write and let you know we are working on the Country© dollhouse for our 2 ½ year old granddaughter. We purchased this dollhouse from you for Christmas this year. She is the only grandchild on both sides and has eight grandparents. You can imagine she has toys all over the place. Christmas shopping was very hard this year as I watched her pick up toys and put them aside. I wanted to buy her something that she would really enjoy and that would have special meaning for her. I also wanted her to stay a little girl and not grow up so fast. I teach school outside of DC and the children today seem so lost. They are trying to grow up so fast and don’t seem to have anything that seems something to them. (This is across all economic lines, as I’ve seen this attitude even in the young kids in the private schools around my house.) I remembered back to my childhood and could remember playing dolls and house forever. My grandmother and mother who have both passed away played with me for hours. As it hasn’t been that long since I lost my mother I thought a lot about what she meant to me. I looked all over for months and then began looking online for the perfect present that I could buy for my granddaughter. I had pretty much given up and decided to make her a dollhouse and customize it for her and put all my love into it. That’s when I came across your website. I was looking for plans for a dollhouse and knew I wanted a large indoor dollhouse that she could play with for hours and clean up quickly. She is always so busy with a lot of people visiting her. I didn’t want her time at my house to be spent picking toys up. Your Country dollhouse was perfect. I liked the idea that I didn’t have to purchase the plans and being able to purchase a dollhouse with the major large pieces already cut out for me. This gives me the opportunity to spend more time working on the small details that will make it personal. It’s so much fun just thinking about how to decorate it for her. I have literally spent days looking in shops for just the right wallpaper and flooring. I found small ceramic tiles at Lowe’s that I’m going to use for the kitchen and bathroom. I am going to put in hardwood floors in the living room. I found just the right size “baton” sticks to make real look flooring. I only wish the stores sold more mini print wallpaper. I’m still looking for the right paper for the walls. I even put in a doorbell that plays twelve different songs. You can tell this is a special present and one that is being put together with a lot of love. When I finish the inside I will have to get busy on finishing the furniture. Which reminds me, I need to call you and order the rest of the furniture so that I can complete her dollhouse in time for Christmas. Thank you so much for making such a great dollhouse, getting the products to me so quickly, and for all your help. It’s so nice to have someone not just sell you something but to have an interest in seeing what you as a customer do with it. Again thank you and have a great holiday!!!

On October my husband was in an auto accident that left him with a broken neck among other injuries. Going from two paychecks to one has been almost as painful as his injury! He is slowly healing but with Christmas right around the corner and three little girls (7, 9 and 10 years of age) in the house, we were at a loss as to how to handle normal living expenses much less Christmas.

Through the kindness of our families, co-workers, and our church we were able to gather the funds to order your Country© Doll House kit. I was very excited to have such a wonderful gift to give my daughters since they would not be getting much of anything else this Christmas. As many can relate to, it is hard to know your children have expectations for Christmas, yet not be able to provide.

The kit was also very good therapy for my husband who was not able to do much and feeling really helpless and down about not providing for his family – Especially with three little girls and their constant reminders of wants! He worked on the house for two weeks carefully placing the shingles and siding, to painting and adding finishing touches during the day while our girls were at school. The process was very good for him and the doll house turned out awesome! The craftsmanship you put into the kit enabled my husband to build a perfect doll house even with a broken neck and limited mobility! He only needed minor assistance from my parents to set the main sections of the house together. Each piece fit perfectly!

On Christmas morning there wasn’t much around the tree, but the doll house made the morning bright! They were amazed and in awe over the sight of it. My girls have played for hours on end with the doll house and are enjoying every minute of it. I am sure this house will be in my family for many years. I have added everyone’s name that donated towards this gift to the back below your signature to stand as a reminder to my girls of how important it is to join together and help others during hard times. We are eager to ‘pay it forward’ and I want my children to have a permanent reminder of this trying time and remember the necessity of reaching out to others during hardships. Your house is the perfect reminder – one we will cherish and one that will provoke much joy.

Thank you for offering such an awesome product – one made in the USA and out of real wood. Imagine that in today’s world! I appreciate the care and craftsmanship you have put into your product. God bless you!

Please see attached photos from the completed dollhouse. We still have many ideas left that we want to incorporate into the dollhouse, but figure we can build on what we have completed so far. We will keep you up to date on future improvements and additions to the house. I wanted to thank you because completing this project was very fulfilling in many ways. Your product came as advertised, the pieces were dimensionally accurate, instructions relatively easy to follow and this made assembly easy, which allowed my wife and I able to focus on the finishing work which really makes this dollhouse shine. Both my wife and I work and we had less than a month to complete the project (mad dash to Christmas). I would not suggest this schedule to anyone who wants to put much detail into the finished dollhouse. But your availability and willingness to answer questions and make suggestions was greatly appreciated during assembly (the offset shingles are a nice detail). The dollhouse is very sturdy and I expect it will last a long time. I hope my daughter’s family can enjoy it some day.

Your site is decidedly superior to other sites because of the detailed photographs you display. You are right about a picture being worth a thousand words.

this Christmas as I would need to have it finished completely before
I give it to her. For such a fine house, I also think she is a few years too young
to appreciate that this house is the finest available in the world. So all in all
I think I will be ordering the house in Autumn time maybe for her seventh Christmas
and then I would have it ready for Christmas and she would appreciate it better.

Looking at your website, the houses are fabulous nothing compares to them.Thanks again.

This year my Christmas list was filled with wishes for electronics, like a new iPod, iHome, DSI, digital camera, new wii games, and so much more, but my mom and dad decided to give me one of your wooden stoves. I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed, at first. Then I opened the oven and there was a note telling me to take the stove out to the garage to see the rest of my gift. I was confused, but I followed the directions; Santa might still be watching, getting ready for next year.

In the garage, I found one of your Barbie-size dollhouses sitting on my mom’s workbench. Ignoring my list was the best decision my parents ever made. I love my dollhouse! I love that I can play with my girl action figures, like Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, Alex (Wizards of Waverly Place), Gabriella, Sharpay, my Camp Rock dolls, and my one Barbie doll. I also have a Troy doll. He has bad hair. I can play with my Littlest Pet Shop Pets and a set of Angelina Ballerina stuffies because they fit nicely in the house.

Guess what else? I can play with all of them at the same time too. How cool is that! Their worlds come together in my dollhouse. Best of all, I also get to decide what happens in each room. The rooms are so big, I can make them be what I want or need. For example, when the family is having a party, I put the kitchen on the second floor, and everyone hangs out in the living room, dining room, and Great room on the first floor. When they want to have a cook-out with just a few friends, I move the kitchen to the patio, and they have an outdoor kitchen and cook outside. When the gymnastic coach lives there, the Great Room becomes the workout gym. I made a balance beam already (it also works as a bench for the patio) and am working on a trampoline and mats to protect them from falls. I’m going to make a small disco ball, like the one I have in my canopy, except it will be a lot smaller. The house is all about how I want to use it. I love that most of all.

My daddy doesn’t like it when I leave out the things I was playing with, even when I’m not finished playing. So having a front on the doll house hides the “mess” when I’m not playing, but still in the process of playing. I don’t have to put it all away after I just got it all set up. I also like having the drawers under the house to store all the things that I’m not using yet. I am going to put in sock dividers in the drawers to hold all the little things my dolls need, like clothes, shoes, and things. I also love that there are real stairs and stairwells that my dolls can actually fit through. It makes the action more real. I don’t like those two-story houses where there are no stairs. You have to take the dolls out of the house to get upstairs. Cheap.

I’m in the process of decorating my house and that is fun. My mom and I are working on it together. I really like that part, even if she won’t let me use her old hot glue gun (the glue is so hot it smokes when it comes out). We get to make something together. She is teaching me how to cut wood with her Japanese draw saw (and not cut myself), how to paint, and I’m going to learn how to do wallpaper too.

I love my dollhouse. I can’t wait to show it to all my friends. I know they are going to want one too.

“we had a lot of fun doing this project, the instructions were great and there is a lot of room for your own personal decorating ideas.”

I always wanted to put together a “REAL” doll house, but the grand kids are into Barbie Dolls. Hated the plastic ones in the store, then found your dollhouse on the Internet, it was just what we were looking for! It took me a year to make the furniture using plastic canvas, my husband took several months to build the doll house, said he didn’t have to rush!

As a team we had a lot of fun doing this project, the instructions were great and there is a lot of room for your own personal decorating ideas. We gave it to our granddaughter on her 4th birthday, and could not have been more pleased with her reaction to it. Her brother and sister, age 2 started climbing into it, good thing this was built to last.

I DID A LOT OF RESEARCH ON DOLLHOUSES AND CHOSE MARTIN DOLLHOUSE COLLECTIONS. I AM HAPPY TO REPORT I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED WITH THAT CHOICE. THE ENTIRE KIT WAS PROMPTLY SENT WITH NO BACKORDERS, WAS PACKED WELL WITH NO DAMAGE TO ANY OF THE PIECES. THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE VERY “READABLE” AND EASY TO FOLLOW. THE PICTURES AND ILLUSTRATIONS WERE VERY CLEAR AND HELPFUL. WHEN I NEEDED ADVICE AND GUIDANCE WITH THE FLOOR, WALL AND COLOR SCHEMES I WAS ABLE TO CALL the owner – very HELPFUL. I ENJOYED THIS PROJECT FROM START TO FINISH. I PARTICULARLY ENJOYED INSTALLING THE SIDING AND ROOF SHINGLES AS THEY GAVE ME A GREAT SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT WITH THE CHANGE OF APPEARANCE OF THE DOLLHOUSE BEING SO PROFOUND. THE BEST PART WAS WHEN I GAVE THE FINISHED PROJECT TO MY 5 YEAR OLD GRAND DAUGHTER AND WAS ABLE TO SEE HER EYES LIGHT UP THE FIRST TIME SHE SAW IT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE MARTIN DOLLHOUSE COLLECTION FOR THE BEGINNER OR EXPERIENCED WOODWORKER.

“Thank you for such wonderful, quick service and for a quality product. Handcrafted, made of wood (NOT plastic) and best of all, made in the USA. Awesome. I will definitely be passing on your website to anyone who will listen…and even those who won’t.”

The box arrived yesterday. Everything is lovely, simply lovely. We’re so pleased and think they will work wonderfully in the house. Just two small broken off pieces (faucet on bathroom sink and leg on patio table), but totally easily fixable with a drop of glue. Wow do I have a lot of work to do yet though!! Just trying to decide the colors is daunting! Guess I better get to it. Thank you for such wonderful, quick service and for a quality product. Handcrafted, made of wood (NOT plastic) and best of all, made in the USA. Awesome. I will definitely be passing on your website to anyone who will listen…and even those who won’t I suppose. Thank you again.

“My parents bought my doll house when I was about 6 years old. I am now 25 and I am repainting it for my girls. Its still in almost perfect condition….I would totally suggest these doll houses to everyone I know. They are the best ones out there! I hope that one day my kids can pass this on to their children and their children’s children. I know that the doll house will still be in perfect condition when they do.”

My parents bought my doll house when I was about 6 years old. I am now 25 and I am repainting it for my girls. Its still in almost perfect condition. There are a few nicks and dings but other than that it’s perfect. I Love my doll house the same as when I first saw it that Christmas morning. It truly has held up so great. My Mom did daycare for probably six years after I got my doll house and it has held up to all those kids (one girl chewed on the heart railing, but it’s still in great shape). I would totally suggest these doll houses to everyone I know. They are the best ones out there! I hope that one day my kids can pass this on to their children and their children’s children. I know that the doll house will still be in perfect condition when they do. Thank you so much for all the great memories I have had with this doll house. I Love My GIRLS!!!

“I planned on buying a pre-made or snapped together “Barbie House” but found them to be ‘plastic’ or “cheap thin woods” and charmless. Looking into wooden kits, I found the “Martin Dollhouse Collection”. To my surprise, the owner answered the phone the day after Christmas!”

I have always had a love for doll houses but having had only sons, doll houses were never a thought or a priority. With two granddaughters on the way, this needed to be corrected! I planned on buying a pre-made or snapped together “Barbie House” but found them to be ‘plastic’ or “cheap thin woods” and charmless. Looking into wooden kits, I found the “Martin Dollhouse Collection”. To my surprise, the owner answered the phone the day after Christmas! Having no carpentry skills, I was worried as to whether I could take on this project, but they assured me that they use only the best quality woods (7 ply Baltic birch) and provide 24/7 customer support and would assist me with any questions or problems that could arise.

Coming home every night from full time jobs, my husband and I took on this project. We set short, obtainable goals, focusing on doing quality work and not hurrying to complete the doll house. We enjoyed talking about the house and planning on what to do next.

In the years to come, my granddaughters Abigail and Sydney will enjoy many hours playing with a house that we spent loving hours creating. This turned out to be a true Heirloom that will be passed down for generations to come. I Love the house. What a wonderful journey it has been.

I bought a Country©doll house in 2008. I keep adding little touches to it every year, and let me just tell you it is my children’s favorite! It is durable and sturdy and very cute. My kids are very young. My oldest is 7 and I also have a 5 year old and they have had their doll house for 5 years. So the trim hasn’t been put on it yet and the porch trim is still waiting for a home but as my children are getting older they’re taking better care of their house and needless to say it has withstood a lot of kid abuse! I am looking forward to next year getting the shutters, windows and door and front closure doors and furniture!! Love, love, love your awesome house and really am looking forward to buying more items from you.
I have finally taken the time to get some photos of our daughter’s doll house. We got it completed by Christmas and I still have a few minor things I want to do yet. My husband was a bit ticked at me as I left this “little project” until the week before Christmas, but we worked well on a tight deadline! We used fake hardwood peel and stick tiles from Home Depot for most of the inside and the fake slate tile for the kitchen and patio. We are thrilled with it, but most of all, our daughter loves it! We have just gotten all of our stuff out of storage from Canada March 16 and I am slowly unpacking all of my Barbie stuff. The furniture was given to me as a child and as you will see we are using the kitchen for a bathroom at this time. Did not plan to do that, but it is all right for now!

“I decided to purchase the Country© kit and it turned out to be the best move I could have possibly made. When the kit arrived I was extremely pleased with the quality and precision of the components….I immediately started building my heirloom following the precise written directions and drawing on the knowledge I gleaned from my conversations with the owner. This was really crucial for the success of this project because it took all of the guesswork and trial and error out of the process….the owner actually contacted me to find out how I was making out, which I thought was awesome!”

Sometime in November of 2015 I contacted Martin Dollhouses with the intention of buying some accessories for a dollhouse I intended to build from scratch. After speaking with the owner and drawing upon their knowledge and experience in woodworking I soon realized that I had neither the time, materials, or the expertise to build a lasting heirloom which could be completed for Christmas. I decided to purchase the Country© kit and it turned out to be the best move I could have possibly made. When the kit arrived I was extremely pleased with the quality and precision of the components. I immediately started building my heirloom following the precise written directions and drawing on the knowledge I gleaned from my conversations with the owner. This was really crucial for the success of this project because it took all of the guesswork and trial and error out of the process. I’m retired so I was able to work every day and complete the dollhouse in plenty of time for Christmas. During this time the owner actually contacted me to find out how I was making out, which I thought was awesome!

Thank you for providing an excellent “canvas” for me to create a beautiful heirloom for my grandkids to cherish with the knowledge there is not another one exactly like it on the planet!
