Welcome to The Tudor Dollhouse Blog

Once upon a time four little girls, one little boy, one big girl and one big boy decided to build a dolls house. One of the little girls (Tiddles) wanted it to be a medieval castle. After some discussion, it was decided that the group would build a medieval castle that was now being lived in by a noble, Tudor-age family.

We decided to build the castle in 1:12 scale, or 1 inch to 1 foot, as that seemed to be the most popular scale for modern dollhouses.

We looked online for help, but couldn't find a great deal about building dollhouse sized castles :) There was one set of plans here, which were interesting, and there was information about a Tudor dollhouse on this model castle site here, and there's a wonderful castle-like dollhouse kit here, but we wanted to build something a little different.

  1. There is a wonderful craftsman that makes the most amazing Tudor dollshouses in Devon, UK. His name is Kevin Jackson of I just recevived mine about 3 weeks ago. It took him about three months to build it but it was worth the wait. Photos are on my blog:
