A few tips for this build:
1) I would suggest building one floor at a time.
2) Be aware that there are differences between the sheets and the images on the eBay auction. Notably, the window frames are a little different and the large window and frame on the front are quite different. Also, note the side wall on the ground floor that only has one window. The window is towards the back on the eBay picture, but towards the front on the sheet.
3) Since I kept knocking off the window frames during the previous build, I cut them all out first this time and as each wall piece was cut from the MDF sheet, I glued the frames on immediately. That way they were all dry by the time everything else was cut out and the building was ready for assembly.

For the price, this building has a nice footprint on the table and I can see that it would be pretty easy to pick up 3-4 of these (or maybe two of these and two of the Old Town Scenics - House B) and call it done. The only piece of advise I have is.. don't glue the two halves of the roof together. Because they sit on tabs that are at 90 degrees to the angle of the roof, you won't be able to lift the roof straight off without having to bend it along the join.. which is probably going to break it unless you use some tape along the inside of the roof. Instead, I would suggest leaving the two halves separate and only glueing the ridge to one of those two halves. You'll just have to remember to take them off in that order.

..but after encountering him 5 times and failing to beat him 3 of those times, I finally got him. Scorching Ray / Blessing of Lamashtu & Poison Blast / Blessing of Pharasma isn't my normal one-two boss finisher but it's hard to say no to all those D12s.
