Hi all...I'm glad to see that this thread still has people poking around. Smiley

I had planned to start on a house last summer, but I never got around to starting and the next thing I knew it was fall and school was starting up again. I received the fantasy villa: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HWW4B4?tag=fasdolsho-20&camp=213381&creative=390973&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B000HWW4B4&adid=1NAJ68ZY8HQKXYAVY45H&&ref-refURL=http%3A%2F%2Fths.fennotrans.fi%2Fvilla%2Findex.html for my birthday last year because I have always wanted to make a haunted dollhouse. This will be my first house of this scale so I can use all the support I can get!

I love the house, but it is a bit intimidating to get started. I'm trying to make the floors and paint the walls before I put it together. I'll be happy if I don't paint something upside down!

Question:

Do you all cut your tabs off when you start gluing the house together so that it makes a smoother join? Or is it easier to just keep all the tabs and then hide them while decorating? I've been making my way through all the posts in this thread, and it is hard to tell if people are keeping the tabs or not.

I keep the tabs but if things aren't fitting quite right I shave them down. I do usually remove most of the roofing tabs. I keep enough on them to keep it in place while gluing and cut off the rest.

Good luck on your house! Post some progress pics if you can... we'd all love to see them!

Thanks for the tip knickertwist. I also thought that if any of the tabs really bothered me I could always trim them down once the glue had set up...but I surely wouldn't want to do that for a whole house.

I'm only just starting on the floors today...but I'll post some pictures later this evening. Smiley

I make some progress on my house today!

I started on the flooring for the bottom floor:



Also I started wallpapering:



So far everything is coming along nicely. Smiley
