Building a Barbie Dream House


I have been meaning to build a Barbie dream house for my daughter for some time. I started thinking I would make a modular system, allowing her to arrange the house any way she wanted. But this became very complicated and did not seem to fit how she wanted to play with her Barbies and house. I built a series of floors, each with a room and a balcony at one end, and a spiral stair at the other. There are three of these floors and a roof deck. I made the Barbie house from ½ inch and 5/8 inch birch plywood, and cut the doorways and stair on the CNC router.
