Glad you like it. I didn't keep track of the total amount of hours I put in........I'm kind of fussy, so probably hands on a couple of hours a day over a period of ten days. There are a few stages in making the house that take a while, (the roof alone took about three hours) plus "cogitating" time. Plus the "I've changed my mind," time!
And although it is pretty sturdy, being made of polymer clay, there are some delicate bits on it so I wouldn't consider this one a toy. A modification of it would be really cool for a little girl to charm a leprechaun into!  Wink

Glad you like the wee house. I've been dabbling around with polymer clay for about a year and half...give or take a couple of months.  Smiley
