Thomas Houha Designs - Best of Etsy 2016

For a large part of a decade, my childhood Christmas list consisted of the latest & greatest Lego & K'Nex kits.  Frankly, I still spend more time than I should eyeing the architecture sets each time I pass a Lego store.  Guess I should have been an engineer.

Today's shop caught my eye with its ornate DIY building designs.  Thomas Houha Designs crafts laser cut wooden models that you can assemble on your own.

We have an ornament exchange every year with part of my extended family & this is a super unique option to mix things up from the traditional Hallmark options!

The tree house kit shown below was the first thing I discovered from the shop.  I feel like the Robinson family would totally give their seal of approval to this Swiss family treehouse.

There are a handful of kit designs of famous bridges, mostly from the Pacific Northwest - but since San Francisco is getting checked off my bucket list in 2017, this Golden Gate number caught my eye.
