Question
HI,
  I was wondering if you could guide me to a book on building a dollhouse because I have little experience in building such a project.
Thanks,
Tony

Answer
Tony,

I apologize, but I have not used a dollhouse book in the past, so I don't have much to offer here.  
I have built doll houses and doll furniture, but of my own design.  Dollhouses can be divided into roughly two categories: (1) Architectural reproductions, which are meticulously crafted miniature houses with lots of detail and not meant for hard play by kids, and (2) simple houses made for real play by kids.
The two are completely different, so depending on what you want to build, the available books and plans will be different also.  

Best of luck,
Steve
