The description below and photos gives you an example of the quality and details I put into my custom work. My skills have greatly increased since creating "Midnight in the Secret Garden of the Fairies" which was only my second large scaled piece.
For the price of $1,200.00 you would be receiving (when complete) a piece approximate to the size of the "Secret Garden", roughly 24"x25"x24". Electrified with custom lights to add ambiance to the piece. And it will be much lighter in weight than the Secret Garden, making shipping a bit easier. I would be very happy to create a Dollhouse, Castle, or Roombox working with you to make it your one of a kind piece.
I'm sure you have questions on how you go about ordering such a large and expensive item here on Etsy to ensure you are getting what you pay for.
To order a Dollhouse, Castle or Roombox through us, first you must contact us BEFORE purchasing this item. Then I will discuss the details with you, present you sketches of which you must OK before the build begins. For an item this large and with as much detail as this including wiring and lighting will take at least 4 months to 8 months to complete. I do require a non-refundable deposit upon the OK to begin the build. Once the build begins I will be in constant contact with you with progress photos and questions that may arise during the building process. I will also be posting the process of the building on the Dragonscale Miniature's Blog.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
** Please Note **
Because of the size of this piece I CAN NOT ship out of the Continental US. Shipping will be done by FedEx only.
I am located in Massachusetts and am willing to personally deliver it through-out the eastern part of the US (within a 12hr drive) and there is fee for this service depending on the milage, please email me so that we can discuss this.
Pick-up is highly suggested.

This impressive structure is based on an old Medieval walled town in Germany. It’s a Tower, with a walkway on one side of the wall,and a garden with a water fountain on the other side. The Tower is three floors; dungeon, middle floor landing, and the lookout area. An archway on the ground level is the entry into the garden.
All of the faux stonework and shingles are hand-carved, each individually out of Creative Paperclay® then hand painted and aged. There are real glass tile in the fountain and raised patio area. The structure is fully electrified from original torches on the walls, to the blue neon-like light that shines from under the eves, archways, and inside of the water fountain. This blue light produces moonlight like shine in the dark. The moon dial and the trunk-pedestal it’s on also glows blue from within.
The tower is removable for access to maintaining the wiring, along with the doorway under the stairs that allows access to the light controls.
It won an award for grand prize at the "Hand Crafter's of Miniatures Show" in October of 2007 in Braintree, Massachusetts.
It has also been featured in Dollhouse Miniatures magazine in October of 2007. This included a two page spread and a tutorial page.
I have put over 800 hours into this piece, and there is way too much to list. If you have questions don't hesitate to ask. I do have a lot more photos, including shots that are taken with the lights off to show the"moonlight" that shines on the whole structure and "in process" shots to see how the structure was built.
This is for serious inquiries and adults only.
It measures approximately 24" x 24" x 24"
