      Got my kit. Took about 6-7 hours to put together. It looks so great. I learned a lot about pop-ups by doing this (which was my ultimate goal). Thanks!!!

      Mine arrived tonight! It looks great. Wish I wasn't leaving town for a week so that I'd have time to sit down and work on it this weekend!

      The best part of the video is watching your skillful hands fold, assemble and glue the parts. I am so looking forward to seeing the finished product. Wishing strength and agility to those marvelous hands.

      You are the best, Katherine. I've backed other projects and hear from them, maybe, once every blue moon. I really appreciate your communications. And I look forward to the house, too!

      @Joshua Arrrg, ahoy matey! Pirate ships would be totally awesome!! The applications are endless.

      I've always been interested in paper crafts such as this, but the concept of this pop-up and foldable house is extremely intriguing. This house itself looks like it's going to be a ton of fun to make; cannot wait to begin. And congratulations on making you're goal!

      Awesome idea! Now we just need pop-up pirate ships!

      John Jr has a great idea. The potential application of these pop up paper rooms with tabletop wargaming is huge. I can see ancient ruin themed pop up buildings, pop up caverns filled with treasure chests, pop up dungeon halls & rooms for a very visual game of D&D. That would be incredible!

      I have to agree with Roy, the ability to "see" from this perspective and at this level of intricacy is nothing short of brilliance!

      Creator royblumenthal on November 30, 2012

      Wow! What an astounding piece of work! I love the detail you've given to each room. I love the way everything works so well together. I love the pop-ups. I love the intricate multiple-angle 3d thinking that went into every piece. This is mind-bogglingly brilliant. What an amazing achievement.

      This looks wonderful. I do a lot of gaming, and a pop up setting is something I might try on my own, but having a full house to use with miniatures that I can pack in my backpack would be great!

    Some of you love pop-ups and would like to support me but aren't at that stage in life when you need a doll house -- this reward is for you: I will send you a signed and dated hand-made card of my village square. This is one of my more advanced designs so it is quite difficult and time consuming for the novice paper crafter to make. The entire village, with its medieval fortification, its church, and a pick-up truck parked under a tree is cut out of a single sheet of white card stock. You can either display it "as is" or glue it to a regular printed card of your choice and use it as a greeting card. Since I am not limiting this reward, I set the estimated delivery as May -- but if I can send them out earlier, I will (alternately if hundreds of people do want it, I'll keep you posted on any delivery delays...)

    If you live within reach of the NYC subway system, I will come meet you at a mutually convenient time and place to give a two hour demo/pop-up class. This can be one on one, making the house (or any other cards) with you, or a birthday party for your kid (maximum 15 kids, ages 8 and up). Of course you will get everything described in the $500 category as well.
