I am continually asked advice about building. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.
- Always buy houses from reputable companies that have a means of sending extra supplies, paints, windows, and spare pieces. I have had to replace various pieces many, many times and could not have done it without the help of the company!
- When you are mixing your own paint, always make extra and save it in an airtight container for touch-up and emergencies! Be sure to label the paint jars with the name and mixture as well as the room location for identification!
- Some furnishings are expensive and some are not. The key to wise decorating is to choose your pieces carefully. Choose expensive pieces that are in your price range to accent and highlight your room. Choose less expensive pieces to “fill” your room and complete the setting. A good mix of expensive and less expensive pieces decorates a room (or house) nicely!
- Rely on other artisans for items you cannot create yourself!!!! It safes wear, tear and worry!
