Miniature dollhouse making has always been a hobby for Paulette Von Behren and recently she has added making miniature building replicas to her repertoire.


Von Behren belonged to a miniature club in the 1980s and continued with her projects long after that group met.

"Each of the granddaughters got a dollhouse," Von Behren said. "They got bigger as I went along."

She has four granddaughters and one grandson. Her grandson got a barn instead of a dollhouse.
