Hi, there! Last week in Japan, Epoch released some new SF products! I’m going to be doing reviews on them in the next little while, since I’ve finally obtained mine! Hooray! (Please don’t mind my son’s crazy ocean wall in the background….it was the brightest room in the house. lol)
For starters, let’s look at the new version of “cozy cottage starter home”!!
Tada~! It’s such a beautiful house!!
It might look pretty similar at first…but it is quite different from its predecessor. Here, I took a photo of the two houses side by side. If you click on the photo to enlarge, you can see the details. Although it is a slight difference, the wall color is less yellow in the new version, and I really like this change. I think if I had to choose one, I’d take the new one, just because it’s more elegant and detailed.
Alright, now here are the photos of the house in different angles.
Aside from the house itself, these are the parts and other goodies that came in a box.
Oooh, what a beautiful window! look at the details!!
The front windows on the 1st floor are detachable. The shutters also come off if you prefer that look. These windows are interchangeable with the town series windows, by the way!
And this is the door! You can even deliver mail and newspapers!
Alright, let’s go inside… This is the first floor.
This is the close up of the kitchen sink, if anyone is interested.
To the upstairs!
The stairs are different looking too. No more ladders!
Welcome to the 2nd floor!
This is the view of the balcony on the 2nd floor. I really adore all the details this cottage has everywhere!
What I love about the 2nd floor is that it has crown moldings. If you install wallpapers here, the room will look gorgeous!
And also, these triangle attic walls no longer have strange connecting bumps, which means, less painful wallpapering!
Just like older versions of cozy cottage, the 2nd floor piece will come off, and you can make a room like this.
This is the back side of the floor piece.
Both 1st and 2nd floors have places for ceiling lights.
That’s it for the cozy cottage! Stay tuned for the other reviews! 😉
