As you can see, this Hobbit-hole project has taken a few steps onwards. I bought Unexpected Gathering in Helsinki as I planned, and shortly after I had built it I took it (Partly) apart to add the necessary bits to my own version.
The main problem of the otherwise excellent set was the scale: It was not really meant to figs with small legs. For example, the windows next to the door were so high that poor Bilbo should have stood on his chest to see who's at the door. I've fixed this bug on my version, where Bilbo is able to look out from every window - and Gandalf can stand straight on a very few spots.
