Default Edwardian house

I've only had my dolls house kit since January. I'm hoping to make it Edwardian era. Are there any others out there in the same era?

Hello Glenys and welcome to the forum.

I've got Netherton (a Deneway house - sadly no longer made) and it will be set in the Edwardian era although it does have a Georgian-ish exterior.

I struggled for quite a while with this as it's very close in time to another property I have (Hambleton Hall 1880) but I like this period so much, I decided it was worth it.

I would love to do an Edwardian House but given the lifetime it is aking to do one small cottage I think I will have to live it through others.

Jane Harrop is writing a book of Edwardian furnishings - it could even be published by now. Her 30s/40s' book is a must have for that era, so I can guess her Edwardian one will be too.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I have just bought my first house and was torn between the Georgian and Edwardian era, i have decided to go for the Georgian but may purchase a smaller house to do up in Edwardian. Once you get one property you really start to get the bug and want another!!
