A good bit smaller than the Garfield, the Pierce is equally imposing and a 'Grande Dame' in its own right.
One of Greenleaf's most popular models, the Pierce offers tremendous value at a most reasonable price, with lots of gingerbread and Victorian charm. The house has six large rooms, an attic, and a secret tower chamber along with an elegant curved staircase, silk-screened windows, two fireplaces, and a wrap veranda. There's a fine open feeling to this stately home, and you're sure to be impressed by its grandeur.

I built this dollhouse when I was 16. It is still standing 22 years later! It has been moved from house to house, and across Texas! I chose it because it had the most interesting floor plan and architectural details. Great stair case, L - shaped plan, bay windows, double doors and a turret! It was easy to build. The only thing I don't like about it is that it has acetate windows instead of working windows.
I purchased this dollhouse kit to build for my granddaughter. The boards were warped and required extra gluing and clamping. Many of the pieces needed to be cut out because the dies used did not penetrate the boards. The instructions were vague and at times hard to follow. Unless you have thetime and patience to deal with these factory flaws, I would not recommend this product. My husband and I take much greater pride in our workmanship that the manufacturers do.
The product design of this dollhouse has great potential.
But there is a huge lack of instructional material, schematics, floor plans, and pictures.
In regards to the quality - I had problems with quite a number of large and small pieces warping quite a bit if they were not used in a day or two after being punched out of the 1/8" plywood parts sheet.
This is not a kit for a inexperienced beginner. It should get easier after you have assembled 2 or 3 of this same kit, because of the lack of instructions.
Instructions are vague, there is a ton of sanding, and the quality of the wood is very poor. Be prepared to put in a lot of time and make sure you have a lot of space to put this house together. At times it became very frustrating due the lack of instructions. The quality of the wood is also an issue. When punching out the pieces, you have to be extremely careful not to break them. This process is also very time consuming. Then you have to sand them, this part takes the longest. Have a pair of tweezers next to you so you can pull out the all the slivers you are about to receive. Have fun and I hope you donít plan on having a kid play with this house due the fact it is very delicate (Very thin wood).
Received the doll house in a timely manner. It was packed well and the packaging in good shape. However, the wood in some places was warped, especially the foundation. It was almost like it had water damage. Punching out the pieces has been a hassle because they are not cut all the way through and break very easy. But we have worked through these problems and hope the finished product is one we can be proud of. I would like to add that working with Overstock.com has been a very pleasant experience.
this is a nice kit. the wood is a bit dry and can be challenging when braking each piece out. It will take you a long time to put to getther but that is why i got it as a project i can do with my free time this is more of a show case house Im am not sure it would hold up to childs play.
It's a big project that was not explained well in the advertisement. Now I have no great gift to give to my grand daughter and I have to try and sell it. Don't buy unless you have months and months to put this together. This is a difficult project. If you have the time then I am sure this would have been great but the description should have on it just how difficult and time consuming this products will be to put together.
I love the floor plan of these houses. would love to have a house of my own withe the same floor plan.Beyond the problem with the wood and poor instructions, I believe that the design of the house should include some screws, nails and bolts. Over time glue is going to break down, and the house is going to fall apart especially if children are playing with the house.
Some of the pieces don't fit together well and have to be trimmed to do so.
Even so, I loved putting this house together. I would like it better if the windows could be improve upon. I would like to have working windows, and doors.
It is not sturdy enough for children to play with It is surely only for adults.
How accurate was the sizing? fairly accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I've put three houses together at this point, and have found that the quality of the wood is about the same no matter what company you try. They all have problems with slivers and all of the parts have problems removing them from the boards. I broke several pieces attempting to remove them from the boards. However, the company was very good about replacing those boards that were impossible to remove parts from. I believe that all companies need a wake-up call as to the quality of wood they use for their houses because not only does it make it difficult to work with, but children will be using these houses in many cases and they do not need to have a hand full of slivers. I did have fun putting this house together I am still not finished! Want to make draps, quilts, doiles etc...These kits are not for beginners. Some experience it helpful.The directions are awful. Needs more illustrations and less words as I didn't know what the names of some parts are. It would be helpful to see what the pasts looked like.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No, some pieces were impossible to remove from the boards. Wood is full of splinters
This was a time-consuming project for our grand-nieces Xmas present. They went bonkers when they received it on Christmas Eve. My husband and I enjoyed doing this together but it took us 2 months in our spare time. Decorating and painting it was the most fun for me. Take into account the size when it is time to deliver it. You need a van or truck. The look on the little girl's faces was PRICELESS.
