All of the patterns are 1":1' (1/12th scale), although the stated measurements are in full dimension to accommodate modelers in 1/12th and 1/24th scale. Each plan includes full elevations (top, front, and side), as well as construction notes specific to each piece of furniture. As her introduction indicates, the original book was designed for hobbyists with at least some knowledge of hand tools and some basic skills, including how to read both elevations and exploded drawings. At the time the book was written, the dollhouse miniatures hobby, at least for builders, did not exist, so the book assumes makes a number of key assumptions: 1) that all measurement would be done with an Architect's rule,  that the available tools would come from other hobbies (model railroading, model shipbuild), and 3) 1/12th scale wood was not available.
