holy crap Katara!!  You snuck in a pic with your door that I almost missed!!! (Up a few posts!!)

Your stones and the metal trim look amazing!!!

Thanks for all the comments! Cheesy

alwaysinmyroom - I can't take credit for the stones, it's just printed cardstock. The metal trim was done cutting strips out of a tinfoil pie dish using decorative scissors. I did have some difficulty gluing it to my house though - it just didn't want to stick!! Eventually, however, I won the battle!  Wink

Ashgrim - Using felt for wall-to-wall carpeting is a great idea!

I can't wait to see progress shots of everyone else's houses!!

I don't care what it is, katara---I just know it looks great!!!  I wanted to print some of the stuff off the links and now that I see how wonderful it is, I definitely will!  I am also experimenting with your foam door technique!  I think my house needs shutters...

Shutters! What a good idea, can't believe I didn't think of it but I may have to borrow it.

I'm thinking I'm going to skip the stairs and go with the ladder idea. The room with the stairs is going to be the study and the stairs will take up too much space.

Here are some in progress pics of my house!! Inspired by Knickertwist's wee mystic's house, I'm doing a witches manor...One old witch and maybe two young witches? I dunno yet! lol

The roof...I hand painted all those tiles.


Here is the sparkly front door!!


Here's the front,w/o flash:


And w/ flash..the color is truer on the w/o flash pic..It's a lavender color..


Before I installed the floors:


A few tips...
If you hate painting..don't get this house.. LOL there is TONS of painting..I'm still not done and have been working on it for almost a week straight (besides when I was at work lol)....
Paint all your tabs..90% of them are showing.
Paint all the edges, trust me it looks better...
It's a bitch to get together. lol.
