The only thing is that they suggest using a silicone caulk which is so smelly. I would definitely go outdoors if I was going to use that method. To me using silicone for a dollhouse is overkill. They do suggest using Aleene's Thick White Tacky glue which I find invaluable for crafting but that is just my humble opinion:)
I also found one site that suggested using fake fur which sounded good but I didn't like the look of it.......maybe a different type of fake fur?
I saw a suggestion of using Shredded Wheat to thatch a roof but I won't go there......think mealy bugs and mold and whatever....eeek!
This blog has a dollhouse in progress.......a bit wild looking but I think it will probably look good when it's finished.
This is interesting.......it's on a roof in Bexley, UK......a little dog:)
I have been here......
.........this thatched roof cottage was the home of Shakespeare's wife Anne Hathaway and is in the village of Shottery, in Warkwickshire, England. It's quite a big house with 12 rooms and is in the Tudor style of architecture. I love the timber framing. When you are in the upper rooms you can hear small birds rustling about in the thatching......little chirps. Possibly not to everyone's taste but I loved it. And, it has the most beautiful garden.......really lovely.
Well, I'm off to do more cottage viewing:)
