What a $69,900 Doll House Looks Like

Retired builder Peter Riches has spent 15 years building the dolls house and crafting most of the furniture inside

Peter Riches, a retired builder from Hove, Sussex, has spent the last 15 years building this miniature mansion. Oftentimes staying up until 3 am working on it, Peter made the home's shell out of plaster into which he hand-etched 32,000 bricks. If that wasn't impressive enough, he also cut the 5,000 tiles he used for roofing material.

Intricate doll's house is set to fetch £50,000

A Canadian fan saw Peter's creation online and placed an offer, which the builder accepted. The home's sale will pay for a dream vacation and make room for Peter's next project: A Sussex Yeoman's long-house, circa 1550. 

The library contains over 1,000 separately bound books. Each minuscule volume contains individual pages taken from newspapers
