The transformation begins

BEFORE: Here's the dry fit of the main house kit right out of the box.

AFTER: Here's the main house once the extra floor has been added and the entire structure primed and sealed. Altering the kit (or 'bashing' the kit as we miniaturists like to say) added an additional 10 5/8" to the overall height of the kit.

The reason I added the extra floor was because I really couldn't decide on which rooms to do because I really wanted to do them 'all'. However, the one extra floor has given me the opportunity to not only have one more room choice, but it has also allowed me to exactly replicate the number of floors in #12 Grimmauld Place so that it's just like the portrayal.
