we set up for production, here is a list of many frequently asked
questions. For more information please contact
How is COVID-19 Effecting Production and/or Delivery?
While we are a small family operation, we personally have not been effected. However, suppliers have been slow to have their materials readily available. We have experienced minor delays that have slowed our production due to a lack of certain materials. We make every effort to continue our building in a timely manner as best as can be done under the current pandemic.
As for Shipping, we use FedEx for all House Shipments and may use the USPS for smaller replacement pieces and other items. We continue to monitor FedEx weekly for any changes in their shipping times. As for the USPS, we have seen a few extra days added to deliveries on the most basic items sent First Class AND Priority Mail.
How much is the Deposit to Commission a Christmas Advent House?
We have temporarily reduced our deposit needed to commission a House is just $100.00 USD.
much does the Advent House cost?
The advent house can retail for $1,999.95 USD + $150.00 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
process. Some extras like Coach Lights, Mailbox, Extra Dormers and our Enhancment Package may be added at an additional cost. Please note: International import duties will apply to orders shipped outside the United States.
If I place an order now, will it be delivered by Christmas 2021?
We are currently sold out for 2021 & 2022. We are currently accepting Commission Reservations for 2023. We have temporarily reduced our deposit to just $100.00 USD.
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?
As mentioned above, commissions can now be made with a $100.00 USD deposit. For the balance, we have two options available (1.) The balance can be paid using fexiable payments to meet your budget or (2.) An invoice for the standard balance will be due prior to the House's completion and within a month of the expected completion date. Shipping charges will be due just prior to the House's completion and shipping. We accept PayPal transactions, but payments can also be made through our PayPal system with your MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. If you would like to make other arrangements for payment (method/payment schedule), we will be happy to try and meet your needs. Please contact us directly.
What if my House takes longer than expected? Is my order refundable?
Yes. However, once personalized items for a House are order and/or 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.

Each house is professionally packed with extreme care and shipped upon completion and only after payment is received in full. We use FedEx and each
order House is fully insured. A Adult Signature upon delivery.
much to ship the Christmas Advent House to Canada or Internationally?
Obviously, the price of shipping will be higher than our regular
$150 price. Canada orders can expect shipping charges to be an over $200 plus any import duty charges. Some locations may be higher while overseas charges will
be quite higher plus import duties.
is the Advent House made of?
Each house is made of 1/4" wood. Each window is designed from
basswood. The beautiful texture and subtle inperfections of wood bring out the magnificent richeness of each house, making them truly unique from each other. The exterior siding of the house is made of brick and real 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, like Coach Lights, Mailboxes, Extras Dormers, Working Clock Tower and our Enhancment Package. An option is something that can be chosen from a collection of different items, which come included in the cost. Current Options are our Door, Tower and Fence.
I repeatedly hear about all the detail in the house. What are they?
As mentioned, we use brick and real 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.

it's widest points.
