I found this dollhouse to be a pain. It looks nice but the directions were a little confusing. You have to figure things out on your own and the pictures are not clear. I found the porch very complicated and the wood required alot of sanding. Make sure you have alot of room because it is quite large. The trim pieces didn't come out of the sheets easy, either. I damaged alot while popping them out, the just splintered and could not be used.
