"When I first saw the box art I kept thinking of buildings I've seen in my hometown. It looked like a nice, quite slice from the city. And the build did not disappoint. I haven't bought or built a Lego set in nearly 15 years, and with each one I build now I'm impressed by the amount of milage they get out of every piece. A lot of creativity and talent at Lego, and it shows in this set. From the stonework, to the bay window, and even how they connect every room, I couldn't help but smile thinking how much fun the people who designed this must have had. I won't spoil much, as part of the fun for me is seeing how they use pieces in clever ways, but one thing that surprised me was how they used skeleton legs to make the rooftop guardrail on top of Birch Books. That's something I never would have thought of doing, and when put together it fits together seamlessly. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking to get back into Lego, and it makes a beautiful display piece as well. That's not to say younger fans of Lego wouldn't have a great time going through the rooms and playing out scenarios with their mini figures. This is also the first set that I've come across that would make a great cooperative build, as both buildings have individual sets of instructions. It would be an enjoyable activity for families, but even couples looking to have a nice project to work on together would enjoy this as well. Great work to the folks at Lego."
