Obtain your own free dollhouse assembly estimate. If you would like us to do this for you, there is a $25 service fee.
|Interior Dollhouse Finishing||Another service offered is the Interior Decorating and Finishing. This can be any and all types of interior work from painting, staining, wallpapering, installing carpet, custom fireplaces and book-cases, ceiling treatments, installing hard-wood floors, tile floors, and all types of interior work. These services are estimated on an individual basis.
For a standard basic room decoration including installing flooring, wallpaper and to cover the ceiling will run about $95 per room for the labor only. If you want special design flooring or custom wainscoting an extra charge will have to be estimated. (Chart at bottom is for additional fees over and above the basic $95.00 per room). Remember, all prices on this page are for Labor ONLY and do NOT include the cost of any materials. These labor charges are for finishing and installing decorator items from our web site. Special work such as building custom fireplaces, staircases or custom woodwork must be estimated separately.
Remember that interior finishing can take 2-4 weeks in addition to the time needed to assemble and finish the exterior of your house.
|Choosing Design Elements and Design Consultation||NOT included on any assembly job is Design Consultation. On ALL assembly jobs the customer will act as their own designer and will, for themselves, select ALL of the design elements including: colors, wallpapers, flooring, lighting, trim, components, and any and all design elements and choices. Customers will provide to Mott's in writing complete instructions on all of
the customers design elements and how they want their house finished. We recommend that you send this to us either as a Word file or via fax, with 1 page for the exterior finishing, and 1 page for each interior room that we are finishing. Each page should detail all choices for that room.
Customers who believe that they can't make these choices for themselves may hire their own designer. Please check your local yellow pages under Interior Design. They will then supply your choices to us in writing for you. Customers also have the option to hire Mott's to act as their design consultant. Rates are $50 per hour billed in 30 minute increments with a minimum 1 hour billing per incident. Please note that this fee will be charged if the customer does not supply choices in writing but instead provides this information to Mott's verbally either in person or via telephone.
If a customer does not want to be involved at all in the selection of design elements they can delegate that job to Mott's. A Mott's designer will make all of your choices for you. The design fee of $50 per hour will be billed for time spent on the clients behalf selecting their design elements for them.

|A word about Shipping:||We can assemble houses and them ship them to you any where in the world but once most house kits are assembled they can no longer be sent via UPS and must be shipped via freight truck and/or ocean freight, or Federal Express Air Freight.
You can expect to pay a minimum of about $100 to $250 (on up) to ship an assembled dollhouse. Why? Because that is what freight companies charge us. Part of the fee is for packing. We charge about $40 on average to pack a house being shipped from our store, which just covers the cost of the box and bubble wrap. The rest goes to the freight company. Many small houses (up to 4-6 rooms) can be sent UPS. But larger doll houses, houses with extensions and/or large porches often have to be sent via Freight Truck. For doll houses that are too large to be shipped via UPS or FedEx we will, on behalf of the customer, request delivery via Craters and Freighters who will pick up, crate and ship your house to you.
As of 2006, we can now send may assembled dollhouse via a new UPS Oversize Service via the UPS Store. Many houses up to about 40" wide can be sent through the UPS Store. These houses will be dropped off at the local UPS Store. Shipping and packing expenses will be billed directly to the customer by the UPS Store.
