The Instructions

Almost nobody kept the original instructions. You can get a photocopy on ebay for $5-$7. They arent crucial for putting it together, but are nice to have with the house. The color brochure is even harder to find since it cant be photocopied easily. Here is the inventory sheet, hard to read on this post, but ask me and i will let you know how many of what was included. Mattel (and Kenner) were good about making it easy to order replacement parts at the time. The time was when instructions were easy to follow and only came in English.

The instructions will not mention that the toe kick needs to be on top of the balcony floor, or else the doors will not open outward and the balcony will be bowed upward.
