Step 1:

The first step is to figure out a design you want to build.

Step 2:

The next Step is to find your rough measurements.

Step 3:

Thirdly you should have another person check your math and finalize your dimensions.

Step 4:

Your fourth step is to enter your rough dimensions into a program to prepare for printing.

Step 5:

Then you print out your shapes or cut them out depending on your resources.

Step 6:

Next, you put together your raw house and find what works and what doesn't. Don't fear if at first, the pieces don't fit together mine didn't.

Step 7:

Once you find what fits and what doesn't you can reprint the pieces and try again.

Step 8:

Now that you have your final rough draft house and your perfect shapes you are ready to cut our your final product.

Step 9:

Be careful to know what way to adhere the individual pieces together so they fit together better in the final product.

Step 10:

Once your house is built you can paint your house and add details and paint it. For mine, I simply painted it red and added a porch.
