Building a barn for my youngest nephew for Christmas. He has very definite opinions about what he wants, including colors and "a door that will really open and close." He selected the Backyard Bungalow kit from HBS.
The same friend who gave my mom the Farmette found several other kits on her neighbor's curb and gave them to my mom. Mom says she's not doing any more minis, so I nabbed the Orchid (the others are a room box, which I'll probably grab at some point, and a very cheap-looking kit I didn't even recognize; if I get the urge to make something out of it I can always pick it up later). My vision for it is a kind of carpenter gothic seaside cottage, with grey-toned shabby chic colors.
A friend of my mother's gave me this kit; I'm trying to track down any info about the company or the house as I build it. Making it into a haunted/witches' house (I got 99 problems, but the witch ain't one).
