we set up for production, here is a list of many frequently asked
questions. For more information please contact
When can I place an order for a Christmas Advent House for Christmas 2013?
We are currently contacting people from our Waiting List for new orders. We will also make announcements for new orders directly through our website by email, website posts and Facebook posts prior to more orders being taken.
Can you help me build my own house or sell plans to build it myself?
Unfortunately, no. On the surface building your own house may sound like a fun idea (It's a passion of ours). But please understand how much time and work are involved to fully complete your house will live up to your expectations. You will need many special tools and equipment to precisely cut each piece for the house.
will be my payment options and how is payment addressed?
Because each House is hand-crafted, it takes time to create and certain materials are necessary,
a full payment via check will be required at the time of ordering, less an extras desired. Shipping charges will be due just prior to the House's completion. While we can offer PayPal as an alternative method, some restrictions will apply (ie. refunds less applicable PayPal transaction fees incurred).
Furthermore, check payments are given priority placement over PayPal/Credit Card payments.
What if my house takes longer than expected? Is my order refundable?
Yes, we can refund your order. However, once personalized items for a House are started, we will not be able to offer a refund. In the event you wish to receive a refund prior to the House's expected delivery, we may not be able to refund any precessing charges from PayPal or Credit Card companies. In the event of any unexpected delays in build times, special material availablity, personal injury, acts of God or any other issue that would result in delayed completion, the House may need to be pushed back past any expected delivery date customers will not hold Christmas Advent House liable under any circumstances. However, we will discuss this issue with you directly to determine a proper course of action at that time.
will my Advent House be shipped?
Each house will be shipping upon completion. We use FedEx and each
order will be fully insured. A signature confirmation upon delivery
will be required.
much to ship the Christmas Advent House to Canada or Internationally?
Obviously, the price of shipping will be higher than our regular
$99 price. Canada orders can expect shipping charges to be an average
of $195. Some locations may be higher while overseas charges will
be quite higher.
is the Advent House made of?
Each house is made of 1/4" wood. Each window is designed from
basswood. The exterior siding of the house is made of real
brick and mortar. Every house comes with electric wiring
to illuminate the entire house from door to tower.
I see a lot of new Extras and options. What's the difference?
We classify an Extra as something which will require a small fee. An option is something that can be chosen from a collection of different items, which come included in the cost.
I repeatedly hear about all the detail in the house. What are they?
As mentioned, we use real brick and mortar to give the house an extra
elegant feel. We have added steps to the front door. We also have
added extra windows to each side of the house (two on each side's
first floor and two on each side's second floor). This adds to the
realism of the house. These windows are also lit from inside. The
fence along the roof line is very detailed give the house a slight gothic mansion feel.

much does the Advent House cost?
The advent house can retail for $1,995.00 USD + $99.00 USD Shipping. International
shipping will be priced upon request. The price has been determined
due to the time it takes to hand build each House and the heavy amount of brickwork involved in the buidling
are the dimensions and weight of the Advent House?
Each house is approximately 30"W x 28"H x 13"D at
it's widest points. The approximate weight is 18 pounds.
the windows, tower and front door numbered?
