2016 Gingerbread House

By Dan Gregory

This studio tower constructed by Courtney Pittman makes an alluring holiday centerpiece -- not to mention, dessert!

Another in our annual series of gingerbread houses is ready for you to start building! Architectural designer Monika Strunk developed a set of working drawings for the Studio Tower, Plan 479-6, by Peter Brachvogel and Stella Carosso, and we are delighted to present the directions here.

Courtney Pittman put it all together and added chocolate frosting for a rustic -- and delicious looking -- lookout! Follow the instructions on each panel. Monika uses a Martha Stewart recipe for the gingerbread dough, which you can find here. Happy Holidays from all of us at Houseplans.com!
















Here are the other gingerbread houses:

one is a cabin based on Sea Ranch Cottage Plan 447-1, shown above;

another is based on Tiny House Plan 896-2. Yet another is based on

Beach House Plan 479-1, shown above. Put them all together and you have

a gingerbread village. If your guests are hungry, it may be time for something sweet, I mean urban renewal!
