Julie Silvester received her first doll house, built by her father, for Christmas when she was 7-years-old. She later added two additions and a horse barn. When she was 14-years-old she built a house using plans found in her great-aunt's home. Many years later, she and her daughter built a new doll house together. In early 2013 Julie started an online doll house and miniatures business - eventually buying a brick and mortar shop in Virginia which she happily ran for several years. Today, she is the very lucky owner of Lilliput's!
