Hi Mizdee,

Iíve looked over the pattern - there is not cut out for the door, it is applied as a decorative piece during decoration. 

When youíre looking at the pattern the A/B pieces fit together and the door is positioned on the right hand side of the 2 windows and the left hand side of the 3 windows (ie where the 2 pattern pieces join). If you want a cut out, or want to cut a door piece, use the windows as a guide for how big you should cut your door and then wing it :).  Or just make a door from fondant or candy when you decorate :)

Edit: I just looked at the photos and compared it to the pattern, the photos and pattern appear to be swapped in terms of the number of windows on the left and right. But basically just put the door between the two A/B pieces that you tape together, itís the only section of spare space on the panel.

Thanks, that is what I ended up doing. Also, is the roof correctly sized? When I put a paper mock=up together the roof was not right or I made a mistake.

I havenít cut the pattern out myself, but I just measured the pieces on the document and they appear to be correct, the roof pieces are longer then both the A/B and C/D sides so it should apex just fine as well as overlap the sides. I. Which direction/aspect does the roof appear to be inaccurate?
