Emily’s House

Also known as, according to the box, “The Love Fort” (I kid you not).

This was one of Emily’s Xmas presents. We ordered it online, not realising that it would arrive in a 20,000 piece () flat pack kit. The instruction manual alone runs to 15 pages of small type and diagrams (all in Chinese, of course). Ikea would be proud.

Anyway, this is not a seven year old’s construction project. So, it has become a fifty year old’s project instead.

I’ve decided to document the build here in this album.

Day 1 (3 hours) Walls, floors and roof papered and stuck together. Hinges attached and the basic framework done. Reached page 3 of the manual. 12 to go.
