    How easy is it to build the Maileg Farmhouse?

    I found it reasonably simple to build. It helps to lay out all the pieces and screws to begin with, and work out what goes where. I needed an extra pair of hands occasionally to hold the pieces whilst I screwed them together. You put together the walls and ceilings first, then slide the back on and the roof goes on last.

    You can add an annexe to the left side of the house. The opening at the top gives the mice access to the roof of the annexe.

    A note about the Maileg House of Miniature 

    Maileg also make another dolls house called the House of Miniature. If you can't decide between the Maileg Mouse Hole Farmhouse or the Maileg House of Miniature read on...

    If you are planning your dolls house to be just for Maileg mice (up to mum and dad size) then the Mouse Hole Farmhouse is the house for you. However, if you intend to use some of the larger Maileg furniture in your dolls house and would like some of the larger Maileg friends (such as bunnies and teddies) to live in it, then the House of Miniature would be the right choice.
