About 30 yrs ago Joseph Tomasello created his daughter a blue dollhouse, now he’s back again to development, producing a larger sized a lot more extensive just one for his 13-calendar year-old granddaughter.

“It is really shut to remaining a true residence, just a little tiny,” mentioned Tomasello, 74.

The new a few-story venture, a replica of a Beacon Hill property native to Boston, stands at over 3-feet-substantial with seven rooms, a winding staircase, hallways, a kitchen and bathrooms which Tomasello and his granddaughter Samantha O’Connell created collectively.

“The one particular he built for my mother when she was youthful, I do not know why but I favored it a good deal,” O’Connell said. “So I questioned him to make me 1 much too. A larger 1.”

The first dollhouse manufactured for Laurel O’Connell sits in a place in Tomasello’s Collierville home all set for his granddaughter to engage in with when she visits.
