Compare and Contrast the '78 A Frame with the '82 M Frame

Here is the much anticipated post about the commonality of the orange & yellow house and the 1982 Mcdonalds playset. The pictures clearly depict the similarities in construction, in fact the post covers are from the same mold. I dont have a rectangle cottage floor yet to photograph, but the floor panels were clearly designed in the same way. Much work went into removing the gooey mess that becomes of 32 year old couch padding in order to reveal that vibrant green color. The roof panels are nearly identical in color, the tile is a bit different, but similar. I had this idea to remove the stickers from the mcdonalds structure and use this as a kitchen wall of sorts since it already has a built in counter surface never offered in the dream kitchen line. The 'out door' side of the counter could be a pass through to the pool area. Other manufacturers had kitchen walls complete with mounted cabinets, opening doors, and a built in sink, but Mattel didnt offer it until later on.
