"I had a love/hate relationship with this build. I found some of the illustrations a little vague so had some trouble there. Once those hurdles were over, it was a very relaxing to complete.
This is the first Creator Expert set I've purchased & built. I think it's now my favorite series & look forward to building more.
I was attracted to the look of he restaurant. I thought it was a charming restaurant. As I was building it, I was imagining I was sitting on the patio sipping a glass of wine & watching life go by.
I loved the attention to detail. From the dining room to kitchen, second floor apartment to the third floor studio. My favorites have to be the kitchen & fireplaces. The ornamental work on the third floor really makes a statement. It also was very easy to assemble, which I was happy about.
I added extra flowers to the flower pots & greenery on the canopy. I also added a small flower basket at the top of the stairs on the second floor, I felt the back was pretty bare so I put a shrub between the windows. I thought the dishwasher would like to look at a little greenery!
"I was challenged wih this set. The build went well with the exception of the stage II rocket. I had a great difficulty with his one. I think I rebuilt it at least 4 times before I finally got it right.
Satisfaction now that it's complete & on display."
