GeeBee House

I've been a good girl all year so I got myself a little early Christmas Present.
Found on eBay from Minnesota US at a very reasonable cost.
This is a GeeBee House from the UK. 1:16 Scale
Estimated date from the 1960's
Below are photos of the house as I received it.
Amazingly all window frame, panes and door are intact and operational.


I spent many hours making this house my own. I used some real wall paper, some paper wall paper, an Ikea place mat and some carpet. I used painters tape to adhere all items so they are not permanent. Within 4 to 6 months the tape will not longer hold and then I can redo in a more proper fashion. I just used whatever I had to put this together.

Photos below are of the house furnished. I am displaying in my living room as a Christmas Decoration. The house measures 23 1/2" wide x 12" deep x 16 1/2" tall so it is not very large and fits into my tiny 16th scale world.


There is a kitchen and a living room downstairs with two bedrooms upstairs.



Greta the Caco girl Doll and her mom Gertrude say Thanks for stopping by.
They wish you a very Merry Christmas.

  1. You have been a good girl when it comes to decorating the GeeBee house too! I love the wallpaper in the left bedroom and both carpets on the ground floor look great too!

  2. Fantastic to find a GeeBee house in America in such good condition! They pop up quite frequently on UK ebay, though some of them have been thoroughly overpainted, and they're often missing windows - you're very lucky :-)
    And I love how you've set it up and decorated it - Greta and Gertrude will be very comfortable :-)
