Dazzling Dallas Delight

What do you get when you add 5 sisters (all under age 10!) and this amazing replica playhouse?

(a)  Shrieks of delight and jubilant laughter,
(b)  A tea party/slumber party for the ages,
(c)  Enough magic to make even the hottest Texas day fly by,
(d)  All of the above.

You guessed it - D, "All of the above"!

Last week, our Service Technicians traveled to Dallas to install this spectacular playhouse.  A miniature replica of the parent's stunning new home, the specifications for this traditional colonial design are nothing short of amazing:
  • 23' wide x 10.5' deep x 12.5' high
  • Flemish Bond Brick facade
  • Striking four-column front porch
  • Cupola and Dentil molding accents
  • Simulated slate roof (made from PVC)
  • Rounded Porch and Balcony
  • French Doors
  • Two interior lofts
  • Custom Play Kitchen
  • Fireplace and Mantle
  • Bookshelves
  • Interior Sponge Painting
  • Simulated Hardwood Flooring
  • Electrical and Air Conditioning Packages
Whenever we consult with excited parents (or grandparents!) on the creation of a miniature replica of their own home, we never know exactly where the road will lead.  There are many decisions to consider along the way: certainly the overall size, but, as with most things in life, the essence is in the details.
     *What features do we want to highlight without cluttering the finished product?
     *What activities will the children be most involved with inside? What are their ages?
     *And how can we incorporate all this?

In this spectacular miniature, we knew we wanted to replicate the multiple roof lines, the cupola, and the front balustrades.  Inside, we wanted to offer the young ladies their living room area as well as the all-important kitchen to play in, but we also wanted to offer a place for quiet time, or better yet, girl talk!  Given the varying ages, we thought what could be better than two lofts for the girls, allowing them the fun and magic of loft time by themselves or as a group.

So how do we ultimately know we've succeeded in accomplishing all this? Is it:
(a)  The look of pride on dad's face as he leads his girls out to their new playhouse,
(b)  The final decorating touches that mom can't wait to include,
(c)  The eye-popping expressions on five little girls' faces (and subsequent squeals of glee!) when they are shown their new playhouse,
(d)  All of the above.

You guessed right again - D, "All of the above"!
