The Fairfield does not have a lot of floorspace to convert to stairs. But it demanded a lovely, grand, eye-catching spiral staircase. Here's how I did it.

It's been some time since I updated. A LOT of time, I guess! And since then, a few things have happened:
First, I decided to postpone the "big" dollhouse (Clockwork House) in favor of starting smaller. I made that decision because it was moving into the rainy months and I didn't want to be trying to cut the wood in the rain, plus we are considering moving, and I really didn't want to have to figure out how to move an assembled 4 ft long dollhouse. But I also made the decision because I wanted to hone my skills and build an even finer steampunk mansion. Which is why I decided to start on something smaller - a half-scale kit, The Fairfield. I have liked this kit for a long time and when I found it on ebay for $25, I decided to go for it. I promised myself that I would just do a straight build - no experimental stuff or kit-bashing involved - and I promised my husband it would cost less because, well ya know, everything is half the size.
