Building the house and foundations takes me two hours tops.

But when it comes to the interior I am so fussy and picky.

Going through my too big dls trying to get the perfect lamp that harmonizes with the wallpaper but doesn't clash with the floor or overpower the endtable that its on.

And only a few rooms am I usually satisfied with :angry7:

Gorgeous house Joy!  Just remember, you're a woman.  It's your job to be a nitpicker :grin:


Thanks, ancient!

I must be doing a good job of nitpicking then. I've also been told I'm a good nag, and a make a good mom (even though I have no kids) :laugh:

I too spend a lot of time building, 3-4 days is not unusual for me. I have to get everything just so. Each room has to be co-ordinated. Pictures have to be hung, rugs picked out. No detail is too small to overlook. Each room has a specific purpose too, music room, study,games room, play room, and they all have to co-ordinate as well.
My most fustrating part-I always forget to put a fireplace in, and then I have to start all over!

It will take me hours to complete a house.  Then I play it, and make changes as I play.

I start with this really great idea for a house .I map out what i want it to look like and start building, my problem is i get tired of building after a while and want to play with the new house.So then i throw the rest of it together and just make adjustments ever so often as i am playing.If i didn't get so impatient I would spend more time.I think the most it has ever taken me was a day, but my houses aren't as elaberate as other's.

As long as you keep coming up with those great clothes you make, I'm sure many of us will gladly share our houses with you.

I spent a week on a house while I was out on sick leave, and it's still not done. Admittedly I'm completely compulsive about decorating and landscaping and a lot of that time was spent searching the 'net for items I needed. :/

As you know it takes me weeks to finish a house. The mansion for my contest took me five weeks, and I had to force myself to finish.
 
I can't count how many times I have trashed the Ishkibibble house. And am about to do it again. LOL
 
Edit:  is that the James' house?Huh?  Oooo .... Twyla better have herself a maid! :laugh:

Honestly, I spend less time on building a house and hours decorating the interior more. How ironic of my name...
