Cut & Assemble Haunted House (week 3)

This week I made a few strategic decisions and installed the haunted house’s second floor which consists of the living room, kitchen and dining room and its creepy dinner guests.

But first, let’s discuss one of my strategic decisions. Many of the staircases including with this haunted house kit are incredibly intricate and small, as is my patience. I have tried tacky glue, glue runners and finally a hot glue gun with no success. If anyone out there has another suggestion for me, I am more than willing to listen. My decision…scrap the staircases.

The first floor deck installed very quickly.

I then added the left drawing room wall, sofa and young lovers. (I chose to not install the included pop-up axe murderer.)

Oops! I forgot to slide in the bay window interior, but found it to be one of the easiest pieces to attach, as it easily slid into place with a little hot glue to hold it.

The haunted house’ right drawing room wall was next and, yes, it indicates a staircase. Will I attempt to install this staircase? Stay tuned!

The dining room table and a host of creepy dinner guests was the next project. The guests piece required intricate cutting so I chose to use my craft knife to cut out the many angles.

After installing the dining room table and guests, I installed the kitchen.

Next week, I’ll work on the haunted house’s second floor.
