Geodesic Dollhouse

I saw a post on the-brick-house the other day about a dollhouse challenge, the I'm A Giant Challenge. There is a group of bloggers who are building dollhouses and decorating them as their dream homes. They also encouraged anyone to join in. I was pretty intrigued by the idea of being able to make any "house" you could imagine. The first thing that popped into my head was a geodesic dome home. I've always wanted to build a geodesic home because of the unique shape and the challenge the geometric shape presents, but I already have a house I need to finish first! Well, now I finally get to build one, sort of. I messed around yesterday after work and put together a "2V" dome using pieces of 1/4" plywood, but then decided to go with a "3V". They are the same size dome, but the 3V has almost twice as many triangles as the 2V. You can read about the geometry and math here.

Anyways, I know I have more important things I need to be working on, but Roxy and I have become consumed by this. She's been sending me emails of tiny little miniature furniture, appliances, and even miniature iPads for the past two days. It's amazing how much dollhouse stuff exists out there. I've got some ideas for this thing that I can't wait to attempt. I'm also very excited to see what other people come up with! I promise this won't become the whole blog.
