Stunning example of dollhouse design and architecture

LED lighting is strategically placed throughout the cabinet to create a combination of both natural and effective lighting effects which help eliminate shadows. The chandeliers and sconces use traditional incandescent light bulbs for a dramatic look while the stain glass pieces are lit by a custom lighting panel created exclusively for The Sahlberg to create a natural lighting effect. Several rooms have additional live base plugs for additional table and floor lighting. An extensive electronic system using both round and tape wires was created in 3 sections with 3 power sources using DC current with easy access located underneath the cabinet table.

Jimmy usually spends up to 18 hours in his home studio working on his miniature treasures and is currently working on a Tudor style mega miniature inspired by the homes built during the Tudor revival period during the early 20th century in the United States.
