About the 1:87 “HO” Scale

The 1:87 is the same scale as HO Scale Trains. When selecting a scale, we wanted one that was common to the miniatures hobby market so that buyers would have access to a vast selection complimentary models like furniture & landscape. This allows buyers to easily find other miniatures to build scenes and furnish their 1:87 scale miniature tiny homes.

The roof and loft are removable to allow you access to the interior. The wheels are fixed and do not roll. Some minor details are different from the house pictured in the book to permit it to be 3D printed.
