What's Not Included?

I get lots of questions about the Advent House and one of the most common is what is NOT included in the 'Full Mansion Kit'?  So here is a list of items that you will need to provide, that is NOT included in the Full Mansion Kit:


  • Super Glue - And, if desired, wood glue for the main structure
  • Paint - We can't ship spray paint (we use dark green and black on our test models)
  • Texture - We can't ship this either (we suggest a simple grey stone texture from your local hardware store.
  • Exterior Finish - We sell 3 types of exterior brick finish on our website or you can find another option.
  • Interior Lighting - We suggest a 25-light LED string of Christmas lights.  Or a single, low-watt switchable bulb.
  • Exterior Decorations - Snow, icicles, trees, ponds, benches, etc....
  • A Printer - For printing the images on the included vellum for behind the windows and the door (the images are included as a download after purchase of the Full Mansion Kit)

So, there you go - everything you need to get an Advent House set up and beautiful for Christmas Next Year!
