The Specialist in wiring Doll’s Houses

We recommend the SWP Easy-Wire system for wiring a Dolls House 1/12th or 1/24th

Please read all this information before you start

  1. The benefits of using SWP Easy-Wire system to wire your Dolls House
  • By using the SWP Easy-Wire system it lets you wire your doll’s house a little at a time if you so wish
  • You don’t have to think about putting any lights into your house until you have finished decorating you just have to know where lights are going to go
  • Once you have wired your house, you will never see the wiring again, but you can always update the way you control your lights
  • Each run of wire for the lights or fires are separate from each other if you have a fault it should only be on that run making it easy for you to find the fault
  • You can all so use some of our wiring products if you have already wired your house even if you have use white plugs
  1. Where do you start?
  1. A Doll’s House kit is a better way to start its easier to wire before you put it together, you can still use our SWP Easy-Wire system if your house is already built it’s just a little harder
  1. You need to work out which rooms are going to be use for what purpose, you can then work out what lights you need in each room and also how many, this is so you know what lights you will need later and where
  1. Think where you are going to have the place on the house where you are going to connect all the wires to the mains i.e. Back – Side of the house or in a shed in the garden or somewhere else
  1. We offer two methods Copper Tape method (some soldering to do)  and Round Wire
