Updated Master Suite

I really struggled with this room. I wanted to turn the attic into a master bedroom but I wanted a second bathroom. So I decided to divide the room and make a bathroom, problem- how to make a removable wall with a floor. Because it was the attic, I wanted to allow light into the bath and let you see into the room. I wanted something more modern in design but not too cold. Sooooo, this is what I came up with and it has been a learning experience, this one space! It's like almost everything I have learned from building this house was used in the attic. If you remember, all the electricity is wired on top of the house to save the finished back of the house. Problem- the top is the floor of the attic, as result the flooring needed to be removable. It turned out better I thought but the attic is very dark when the house is lit than the other rooms even with the table lamp. I bought a ceiling light to go in the area above the doors but it is not installed, the only thing left undone in the room. (Hint DAD) The only thing :)

Ceiling light to go over the doors mounted to the back wall


  1. Hi .... I recently got the same dollhouse and same as you, I'm struggling with what kind of room the attic will be and I was wondering how you managed to put in all that furniture, since the space is so small, the only thing that fit's in there is a double bed and that's it .... impossible to move if it were to be a real room ??? Did you change something else to have that much space ?

    1. I don't think so, the space was quite large. I did add the back wall. When assembled it I had the removable panel in place until it dried and made sure it was centered on top of the house.
