40*54 is the base of the house which we but the cardboard on it
Then we will draw and locate the doors and their area in { 10 *40 } .
After that we will paste all the cartons with a glue gun , the two small card board will be in the face and back either long will be on both sides of the base of the house
I finally put small pieces of white paper on the fence to make it look better.

Step 3: Making the Ground Floor

In this step I’ve put two tall pieces of cardboard between the garden doors and the garage doors, then I put another one (with the doors cutted on it) behind them. Finally I used another piece of cardboard to separate the two gardens.

Step 4: The First & Second Floors

In these floors I’ve cut the windows using a cutter , glued the parts together and then I stacked them on the top of the ground floor, I used hot glue gun to glue them together.

Step 5: The Roof & the Elevator Motor Chamber

In this step I‘ve cut the parts as shown in the figures, then I glued them together using the hot glue gun. I put white paper on the ground of the roof to make it look better.

Step 6: Painting

First I painted the whole building with a gray color and the balconies with black then I used a black and a dark gray colors to draw some these small lines to make the building look better.

Step 7: Enjoy Your Beautiful Creation

It took me a lot of effort and time to finish this building and finally I can sleep well because I’ve completed it.
