The wings and additions are built as separate pieces and can be rearranged into a number of configurations. The courtyard contains a reflecting pool and gallery, and one roof features a canvas canopy.
The dome is made from a plastic two-part easter egg.
The entire building is approximately 8" by 9.5" in this configuration.

Teardrop beads form the column footings for the upper gallery and hourglass beads for the lower. Part of the canopy (balsa wood and facial tissue stiffened with dilute white glue) is visible at the upper right.
