    Can someone help me with my Gingerbread House?

    http://i5.tinypic.com/6q45b0w.jpg - this is a link to what I currently have up.

    My problem is I can't figure out how many more walls and roof pieces I should buy to give the illusion that the house is complete. Can someone who is better at building illusions in the VMK guest room set up help me out here?

    Please and thank you!

    Well, figure each wall piece width is 3 spots wide, and until they release the 'inside' blocks you're looking at another 12 walls. Are you adding a second level? or just a roof?

    For the roof (depending on how tall you want it), you need something to give it height...I think crates work, haven't done it with crates. I used the 3x1 roof pieces to give height. I'll get a pic in a little while to show you what i mean.

    Your house is looking good so far

    Thought about adding a second level, but decided not to for money reasons.

    Is that the cheapest way to go about doing it?

    i think you can try crates, but with crates i found that they make the tops of the walls look funky. try it and see. The hosts have been having gingerbread pieces in their quests, so if you run a few characters through, then, hey, free gingerbread

    See, I'm never on when the quests are on. *sigh* Guess it's more Mansion madness for me just so I can put a roof on my gingerbread house when I have time.

    http://i4.tinypic.com/7xwf6tj.jpg - Just redid my room, so now this is what it looks like. And by the looks of things, I still need 8 walls to fill the inside and then a countless number of roof parts.

    Now is a bad time to have gone for broke in the construction of this.
