Georgian Room Boxes

Not everyone has the space for another full sized dolls house. Our room boxes1 are built using the same techniques as a room in a complete house but without all the additional complication of stairs, front panel, roof, chimney stacks, etc. Unless you request otherwise, all our standard room boxes are 18" wide X 12" deep and have a height that is relevant to the room type: for example, an attic or kitchen will have a lower ceiling than a principal reception room.

Below you will find details of our standard range of roomboxes whilst our bespoke roomboxes will give further ideas about what is possible.

Displayed individually or built into stacks, room boxes are a great way to collect period rooms to display your miniatures.

Delivery price for a room box varies with the content - a lot of plasterwork or expensive chandeliers requires more packing and more expensive transit insurance. Please call or email for a delivery price.
