A shared passion for dolls’ houses

December 16th, 2011

Florida couple Tom and Maria Nemesi spend their time building unique dolls’ houses and then donating them to charity.

Theirs is a genuine team effort with Tom doing the building and assembling following Maria’s blueprint and his wife taking care of the interior decor, fixtures and furnishing.

Their latest creation, which took five months to make, is being raffled to raise money for local hospitals and they have already turned down a $3,600 offer for it.

In fact they have only ever sold one of their houses in thirty-five years of making them, preferring to retain complete artistic control and donating their creations to charity.

Their attention to detail is amazing and their new three-storey Victorian style house has lace curtains throughout, a red-tiled kitchen and a bathroom with gold-toned fittings and doll-sized towels.

There is even a miniature dolls’ house within the house which was made on a 1:144th scale.

When asked who they would like to see win the raffle for their dolls’ house, Maria said: “Some father who can’t afford something for his daughter for under the Christmas tree, he should win it.”
