Free Plans for A Tudor Doll House

Photos of Tudor architecture in England.
      The Tudor architectural style is the final development of Medieval architecture in England, during the Tudor period (1485–1603) and even beyond, and also the tentative introduction of Renaissance architecture to England. It is generally not used to refer to the whole period of the Tudor dynasty (1485-1603), but in prestige buildings to the period roughly between 1500 and 1560. It followed the Late Gothic Perpendicular style and was superseded by Elizabethan architecture from about 1560 in domestic building of any pretensions to fashion. In the much more slow-moving styles of vernacular architecture "Tudor" has become a designation for styles like half-timbering that characterize the few buildings surviving from before 1485 and others from the Stuart period. In this form the Tudor style long retained its hold on English taste. Nevertheless, 'Tudor style' is an awkward style-designation, with its implied suggestions of continuity through the period of the Tudor dynasty and the misleading impression that there was a style break at the accession of Stuart James I in 1603.

"Building a 12th scale Tudor dolls house. A true timber framed dolls house . The plan I am using was found in a old Dolls House and Miniature Scene magazine from about 2009. The plan is by Gerry Welch of Manorcraft who builds wonderful dolls houses for adult collectors. This is my first attempt at building a dolls house." Fantastic Job!
