    Kate, you’re awesome but do you know what this collection needs? A Polynesian Ranch. Could be a tricky one though since the details can be intricate – exposed exterior rafter beams, upturned eaves, decorative block walls, etc. And clearly palm trees would be needed for the landscaping! I have a guide to ranch houses somewhere that shows some great examples. Must find the darn thing so I can share it with you guys.

    You also will need one with a butterfly roof, maybe a brutalist style building, and how cool would Case Study #22 be in a putz house! But Kate, you have done so awesome on these! And I noticed that the snow on the roofs of the second year houses is flowier (is there such a word?) and much more natural. Great job, as always!

    If I had a bigger budget to work with I’d ask you to whip up the corresponding real house plans for #1 and #6. These are awesome. 🙂

    Those are just TOO cute! I love them, it would be super cool if you could make a putz house just like the one someone on your Christmas lives in and give it to them for Christmas! I would love to do that some time.
