This Victorian dollhouse kit from Greenleaf is perfect for letting your child's imagination run wild. This house features spacious rooms, a beautiful staircase, and two impressive fireplaces your child will love to decorate and share with friends....more
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.
This product arrived well packaged and in a timely fashion. We have never built a doll house before and found the instructions a little confusing. The diagrams helped, but we still managed to build the staircase back to front and had to reorder two sheets. This process is excellent and the replacement sheets were very low priced and arrived quickly. Good service is provided by the manufacturers.
went together fairly well (i woodwork for a hobby, however, so perhaps went a little easier than for some). Glue gun was a must. Finish of kit as sold is not so nice (e.g., really need shingles at a min. to make outside look decent, rough finish of edges of pieces should really be filled for smooth appearance, set of nice windows and doors is another hundred bucks. Siding would cover up the last of the blemishes. This adds a lot of cost and time.) Definitely not "heirloom" quality as is. However, nice big house for low money(especially with free shipping) which if painted would make a nice house for a young child.
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.

After falling in love with the Greenleaf dollhouse designs, I have a very hard time tracking one to be sent to Australia down for a reasonable price. I stumbled across this website and couldn't believe that shipping was advertised at only $*** AU! To top it all off, the package arrived less than 1 week later.
Everything is in order and in good condition (no tears or dents to the outer box). I have had a quick read through of the instructions and although they are very limited in the details given, I think I will be ok.
Overall, I am REALLY happy with my purchase especially considering the bargain price that I paid for it! :D
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 don’t 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.
