For a while, I've been thinking of investing in few doll houses to use as a background prop & more for figure photographs.
I never got around actually going for it, until now.
Actually, on second though, a grown map building a doll house is never a pleasing thought. Though I reason with myself that this needs to be done for a bigger project of mine.
This would be my very first time building anything like this. In other words, I have absolutely no experience in this.
I was pleasantly surprised to hear Laputa theme music when I played the music box.
The manual is okay. You don't actually need to read anything. The pictures are enough to tell me what to do. Measurements are in either cm or mm. Thankfully, I am comfortable with metric system.
Every single element of the house needs to be manually glued together. The progress so far took me around 6 hours to reach this point.
Some, actually most, assembly requires eyeballing instead of precise measurement. A good example is a spot where the door is supposed to go. The manual doesn't say anything. I basically had to build the door first and then add 1mm to the width of the door.
This concludes Day 1 of building.
