This stunning and realistic looking 1/2 inch scale lighthouse stands nearly two feet tall--and it even has a flashing beacon! It comes unassembled and unfinished, giving you the opportunity to paint it and/or wallpaper it in any color and style your heart desires. You can also add the matching 1/2 Inch Scale Keeper's House to your scene--see the last photo for an example!
The lighthouse features:
Construction: 3/8" milled clapboard
Scale: 1/2 inch scale. This is also known as 1/24 scale, meaning an item that is 12 inches in real life is sized down to one half inch in a dollhouse. This is half the size of standard 1/12 scale dollhouses and dollhouse miniatures.
Size: 10 7/8"W x 8"D x 22"H. These dimensions include items that protrude, such as porches and roof cresting.
Included: Windows, door, staircases, and railings.
Not included: Paint, glue, curtains, and any landscaping, furnishings, or light bulb. (The glass prism light fixture will accept up to a 25W candelabra bulb.)
Instructions: Included in your kit along with expertly drafted illustrations. If you're still feeling stuck, you can receive free phone assistance by calling the manufacturer's toll-free number at (866) 524-0222!
Shipping: Good news: Shipping is free for this item! Just please note that this kit is shipped in a labeled box, so you may consider having it shipped to a place that won't ruin the surprise if you plan to give it as a gift.
Vendor: Real Good Toys, a Vermont company that has been continuously producing fine wooden dollhouse kits since 1972. The company was founded with a goal to not only produce high-quality dollhouses, but to do so in a way that was responsible and sustainable. Today, Real Good Toys is a fair trade company that uses 100% renewable wood sources.
While many dollhouse kit manufacturers opt for thin plywood, kits from Real Good Toys are made of thick and durable MDF wood or 3/8 inch milled plywood. These kits are handcrafted by an experienced craftsman or craftswoman who cuts, shapes, grooves, routs, and bevels each component. This process creates a far more long-lasting and smooth-edged product than conventional die-cutting does.
You're in good company when you buy a dollhouse kit made by Real Good Toys. That's because their dollhouses have been everywhere from under the White House Christmas tree to Hollywood film sets to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum!
