Build your own 3-D model dream house! Kids can experiment with designing and constructing a detailed, 3-dimensional model home. Start by making a floor plan with the included 18" by 12" floor-plan grid or use an already-designed floor plan from the 2-D Home Planner kit (sold separately). Then create a poster-board house up to about 5,000 square feet, or several smaller homes. The 3-D Home Kit lets you experience the work and rewards of being an architect, with step-by-step instructions for 7 house designs and tips for creating your very own design.
