I started “building” a miniature house in one of the rooms of my basement. I got the idea after reading this book with my six-year-old daughter.

The photos are of a real miniature “mouse mansion” that the author built. Amazing!

I showed it to my husband. I thought the book was enchanting. He said, “Don’t you dare!” He knew that I would try to build my own. I’ve always wanted to make one.

I mean, look at this gorgeous little music room.

What about this crowded laundry room?

I ended up only spending a day or so on my miniature house project. Then I realized how hard it was and how much talent I don’t have for this sort of thing. I think I’ll be content to examine this book and take in every detail.

Do you like miniatures? If so, get this book and enjoy looking at all of the details for yourself. Don’t have kids? Get it anyway!
