Comments from Submitter:
Recently got new catalog showing higher-quality image of this set than Admin had to work with when he created this inventory. Based on the catalog photo, these are the parts I believe to be in the set. Unfortunately, I can't get the total to come out right - I'm getting one extra part in addition to the 70 parts advertised in the catalog. I believe it comes down to either (a) the doorframe and porthole door came together and were considered one part, or (b) the three white 3437 parts were actually one white 3437 and one white 31110. I will post a large photo of set in response to this post so's what you can take a gander at the pic and see what you think.

Without going into a detailed check, I do believe door/frame assemblies were
counted as one piece in Duplo for quite a while, and they were also shipped assembled.
Check out the inventory status of this assembly (not listed as a counterpart):
 
Part No: 4253c01  Name: Duplo Door / Window Frame 2 x 4 x 3 Flat Front Surface with Door 4247 (Undetermined Version)
* 
4253c01 Duplo Door / Window Frame 2 x 4 x 3 Flat Front Surface with Door 4247 (Undetermined Version)
Parts: Duplo, Building
Marked for Deletion

The 31110 does not appear until 1995, so that can be ruled out:
 
Part No: 31110  Name: Duplo, Brick 2 x 2 x 2
* 
31110 Duplo, Brick 2 x 2 x 2
Parts: Duplo, Brick

Those were my thoughts as well concerning both parts, but on the second part
I thought it possible that it may have appeared earlier than currently known.
I was leaning toward the door/frame being the correct answer, though.

Your insightful input is valued, as always.
