  1. The house is using ALOT of glue. but thats ok because its a very strudy house. I havent had a single problem yet. "Knock on wood" Ive pretty much been following the instructions the entire way, and they are SO easy to follow. there are even hand drawn pictures of what you are supposed to be doing. cant beat that! So I started out adding a little bit more glue to the sides of the 3rd floor bottom. Then I started to attach the 3 pieces of each bay window... Before I glued i gave each piece a good sanding, then dry fitted to make sure it fit! Then I laid it down with the back side face
  2. Welp Ive been seriously busy this morning! I had to make up for no mini building this past week! I worked on my Emerson row too, but I wanted to post about my White orchid first! So basically the exterior is finished now. I glued all the windows and attached them... Added all the trim. And I finished up the ivy on the roof!

Next I attached the 2nd floor! then i realized i made a mistake. i glued the hall walls upside down!! ahhh!! so since my glue is glued down realy well i could not remove the pieces without breaking them SO!

I started out taking each piece out and sorting them in labled zip lock baggies. Punching out the pieces was a dream, everything was in excellent coniditon. The only problem I had was punchign out the hall stair railing. I ended up having to do ALOT of mending to that piece....
