How to make it
Step 1: Buy and download the drawing
Step 2: Make the frame of level 1 of the mansion
Cut the model cardboards according to the size in the layout to make the foundation of each floor
Then cut the amboo sticks to the size in the layout. The blueprint we send you should contain all the size, which make it easier for you to make the model)
Next, arrange the wooden sticks on the layout’s surface in order (you should combine the use of white and brown wooden sticks to make a highlight on each wall) then glue them together with glue
After finishing all the walls in the 1st floor, join them together on the foundation we’ve prepared previously.
With the plain walls without window or door, your only concern is to arrange them nicely and evenly
Next, make the partitions inside to separate the rooms. You need to pay close attention to the positions of the walls to avoid misplace them.
Step 3: Make the furnitures for each room of the 1st floor

With this house, we use the grilled wall to separate the kitchen and the living room
Step 4: Make the stairs
Each step of the stair is 3cm long and has the wideness of 3 wooden sticks
Then just attach the steps together to make a stair for each floor
Notice that the size must be precise in order to attach fittingly into walls and other partitions
Next, glue the stair to the wall, making a path to the 2nd floor
Step 5: Make the frame and the furniures for the 2nd floor of the mansion
Similarly to step 1, the layout of the 2nd floor is not much of a different. Follow these steps
First, cut the wooden sticks to the size given in the blueprint then place them on the sheet contain the layout of the floor
Glue them together and we got this as a result
Remove a 9*9.5cm piece from the foundation to make way to the 3rd floor
Next, attach the walls and partitions of the 2nd floor
What’s differenent from the 1st floor is that there will be no kitchen so the furnitures in this floor will be beds, TVshelfs, bookshelf, closets,… instead of dining table and kitchen counters,…. With these furnitures, Kheo tay has also introduce you how to make them in other articles and videos. You can check them out to find out the detailed tutorials.
After making all the furnitures, you simply place them inside according to your will
A mansion should have a balcony. To make the house glowing with the LED light, use the clear plastic sheet to make the rail.
Don’t forget to place the stair on the position you’ve made previously
Step 6: Make the frame and the furniures for the 3rd floor of the mansion
Do it similarly to step 2 to make the foundation of the 3rd floor.
The original surface of the 3rd floor
This floor is mainly use to serve the purpose of enteraining so we will place a mini bar in and a spacious balcony for exercising, if you are a sport person.
The balcony area will take most of the space of the 3rd floor, with the exercising machines would are the highlight of this floor
And here is a inhouse mini bar. It looks ineresting, isn’t it.

Step 7: Make the frame for the 4th floor, the highest floor of the mansion
This floor mostly served as a retreat for relaxaion, so it has a large swimming pool. To make this floor is quite simple, you only look at the photo or watch the tutorial video and you can make it in no time.
The rail is glass made of clear plastic sheets so the house has a very modern appearance

Finally, you only need to place them in the right positions on the surface of the 4th floor and it’s done. It looks just like a real swimming pool, isn’t it.
And here are the views of each floor inside the wooden stick mansion
Step 8: Finish the rest and decorate the mansion
Continue by making the eaves for the house to clear the rough edges and make the house looks balanced
You shouldn’t forget to add pots of trees and plants on the balcony or terrace of each floor
The house looks more catching with the help of decorative trees
Next is the patio in the 1st floor. Stack the model cardboards on each other (about 3 of them) then attach wooden sticks with suitable length on.
A house couldn’t lack the fence and the gate
The fence is a combination of plain cardboard and a grilled wall made of small wooden sticks
Similarly, the gate we designed is quite simple, yet very eye catching. You can make other types of gate if you wish
Next is a little garden in the courtyard
You could also separate the garden and the couryard by making a fence and a gate as the above with the colourful flowers to decorate this fence further
To make a small landscape in a corner of the garden, follow the steps of making the pool then put some pebbles in and decorate it with some trees and flowers
Finally, we start wiring the LED light for the house. Glue the wires on the walls with glue
You should use the blue light inside each floor of the house. This way will make your house more stunning at night
The yellow light is the ideal colour for the outside
