Bespoke dolls houses1

In addition to building and selling our standard Georgian dollshouses we also undertake bespoke commissions for customers. Bespoke houses ("custom doll house" in the US) are usually challenging and enjoyable to design and execute. We particularly like to work closely with the customer from creation of the CAD drawings and sign-off of the specification, to weekly emailing of digital progress pictures.

What to do next

Call or email us with the outline of your idea; after some discussion we will be able to indicate the likely scale of work involved.

If it is possible for you to visit us, this is by far the best way to define what you really want. There are often some completed houses from which you can get ideas and discuss options over a cup of coffee. If you live too far away to visit, it is not a problem. We have successfully developed the specifications and CAD drawings for completely bespoke builds having never even met the overseas customer face-to-face!

When you are ready to proceed with the purchase, we will draw up a specification that describes all the ideas that were discussed and send you this with a quotation. During the build we can email you with weekly progress pictures so that you can see your house coming together. Some customers also like to visit as their house takes shape: it certainly adds to the excitement of commissioning your very own house.
