I bought this set about one year ago but when I play with it feels as if I bought it just yesterday. Chimney design and the rotisserie is cool compared to the other creator houses. the tree was confusing to make so I make my own design every time I play. The canoe is good too since it goes with the set of how the person is out in the wild. the second house looks more modern since it shows the street lamp and the light inside the house. to make the second house more modern i added the bbq grill used in the family house. i also added two pair of lights in the house. the third house is good but it gives lots of grassy room near the tree so I added the basket ball court used in the apple tree house. nevertheless this is a really cool house.
This set is a great edition to any house collection/city/town for a Lego Enthusiast!

Overall a 9 1/2 of 10
Very awesome cabin! Buy some blue bricks/baseplates to expand the river! Also, buy some green baseplates to make more grass!
I really love this set! It has a quaint, little fireplace inside and has a river/stream attached to the side which works great if you have a LEGO lake.
~ Stream attached to the house
~ Removable roof
~ The back opens like a dollhouse
~ No baseplate, just LEGO's
For [$$], I gave my grandson about [$$] worth of logs, which probably cost about [$$] to mill and package at most. Fortunately Target [..]. If there had been a negative number for "value," I would have used it. The box is large and comes with each sized log and roof piece packaged separately inside--lots of plastic. It almost fills the box. After you throw out the packaging, you have fewer than 2 inches of logs in a box over a foot tall and about 9 inches in circumference. Frankly, I was embarrassed to give it to him for his birthday.
My grandson loves blocks, so I hope he'll like this as well, but I'd buy the cheaper pseudo-lincoln logs if I were you. If he likes them well enough, I certainly will in the future. About three times as many logs cost half as much money. This is a rip-off aimed at people like me who remember kids playing with them years ago.
