"This build looks great when completed. I am an amateur at lego and I didn’t find this difficult to build. Instructions are very straightforward. It took me about 9 hours to build both apartment, excluding the hall which I chose to not include. I preferred to the have the apartments separate without the hallway. I also decided to not use the cameras, I used spare, smooth tiles to cover the edges where the cameras go. I also took the arch out of Monica’s kitchen, it detaches easily and makes the kitchen look more open. The only drawback was the sofa in Monica’s apartment, it has two push up cushions so only one character can sit on the three seated sofa. I would’ve paid extra for this set if it included the bedrooms. However it is a beautiful set even without the bedrooms. Now, I would like to see a lego Frasier apartment."
