Tracking down Bauder-Pine furniture for the Mansard Victorian

I plan to furnish the Mansard Victorian with as much Bauder-Pine and Cassidy Creations furniture as possible. This means keeping a close eye on eBay, Etsy, and other places where thirty- to forty-year-old half scale miniatures might show up. (I’ve previously posted about Bauder-Pine furniture here and here, and you can read up on the… Keep reading »

Egg carton quoins

Now that I’ve added 1/2″ of depth to the front of the Mansard Victorian to accommodate the side addition (shown here and here), I need to finish the front edges of those pieces before starting on the inside of the house… which means I need to decide how the house will be finished. My original… Keep reading »

Mansard Victorian — more bulking

To accommodate the addition I’m adding to the side of the Mansard Victorian, I had to add 1/2″ of depth to the house. I started by gluing 1/2″ strip wood to the front edges of the house and top edge of the front panel, as described here. The front panel now sits 1/2″ out from… Keep reading »

Petite Properties cupboard stairs

The Mansard Victorian shell didn’t come with a hole for stairs. I’m not opposed to leaving the stairs out of a dollhouse, but for this one I decided to add a false staircase. I might have gotten the idea from the Bauder Pine Colonial, which has a hidden staircase that runs up behind the fireplace.… Keep reading »

Mansard Victorian — bulking up the house

Okay, that’s a weird title, but I couldn’t come up with a better way to describe what I’ve been doing to the Mansard Victorian for the past month or so. This all started because I wanted to add an addition to the side of the house. The addition is a long-discontinued Houseworks 1:12 scale bay… Keep reading »

Braxton Payne fireplace with added built-ins

As I mentioned in my last post, I spent a lot of time arranging furniture in the Mansard Victorian to find a space to use this Bauder Pine corner cabinet. Literally the only corner I could make it work is this one in the living room, with a fireplace next to it. I tried out… Keep reading »

Mansard Victorian – making plans & cutting holes

Now that the Craftsman bungalow is finished, I’m going to dig in to the Bauder Pine Mansard Victorian shell I bought earlier this year. The house came with two side additions that I decided not to use. I don’t like how much they stick out, or the flat roofs. They don’t look like natural extensions… Keep reading »

A 1:12 Mansard Victorian, and new (to me) Bauder-Pine furniture

When I was working on my big post about Bauder Pine, I chatted with a woman named Ginger who said she had the same Mansard Victorian house as me, but hers is 1:12 scale. She told me Frank Moroz, who was Pat Bauder’s partner at Bauder-Pine, built it for her in the seventies. She had… Keep reading »

A brief history of Bauder-Pine (and a new dollhouse!)

Warning: long post incoming! I recently bought this 1:24 scale Bauder-Pine shell off eBay. I think this house was simply known as the Victorian, but I’m dubbing it the Mansard Victorian. I’d seen this house once before when someone posted about it on the Greenleaf forum. The side additions are not attached, and I’m going… Keep reading »
