I’ve always wanted to make the Clerestory Church. When Pete introduced his kit for this church I was so excited.

I can’t say enough about Pete’s kit. It has everything you need to build it, plus step by step instructions with pictures to tell the story.

There are different version of this church, so mine has a bit from each, most obvious is the windows I chose to use. The Santa is as big as life!!

Pete I want to thank you for this wonderful kit, without it I would never have my dream church!!

Lynn...
This church looks like it was just purchased from the five and dime!...bright, clean and perfect in every detail...it really has it all...design, color and texture...you've built Pete's kit and painted the Santa the way it should be...you should both be very pleased with the end result...

Fabulous my good friend. I knew your patient's and skill would showcase this little kit. I'm sure it will grace this next Christmas' display in a place of attention.
What kit would you like next? LOL

Hello Miss Lynn. Here are the kits that I currently offer. I add new kits only when a customer requests a certain building. So if you have the time pick out a putz house that you would really love to add to your collection. I also have blueprints for some other, desirable, house. Harder to build this way but it's a nice challenge. I have ten of these... (see photos)

Here is what the Blueprints look like. You have to do a lot of calculating and put in some hours on these.

I splurged awhile back.

I have built 3 houses from peter's kits.

They are the crown jewels of my collection of houses that I built.

I can say it takes a lot of guesswork out.
